Lounging poolside, amiably failing to agree on their next release, soul impresarios Aldo Vanucci and Del Gazeebo were only too happy to be interrupted by Mako & Mr Bristow on the blower. Would they be interested in a heavyweight re-flip of Jimmy Hicks’ insouciant cover of Mr Big Stuff and a thunderous re-version of Candi Staton’s funky-soul standard I’d Rather Be An Old Man’s Sweetheart for Soul Flip? They would? Excellent!
A flurry of communication and studio refinement followed and then it was time to contact the big man – Uncle Craig Charles. He was so stoked with the two tracks he promptly played them both on the Upfront Funk and Soul Releases Of 2023 editions of his BBC Radio 6 show!
Once again then, a reminder why ‘Soul Flip’ is a byword for soul edit quality with the Soul Flip 15 vinyl 7” from guest producers Mako & Mr Bristow.
