Image: 1583216 Great 20th Century Fox reissue EP featuring four hard-to-find classics from Northern Soul hero Edwin Starr. Blessed with an intensely powerful voice, Starr also showed great skill and innovation in his productions creating masterpieces in a wild variety of styles from lo-fi minimal funk to hi-octane disco. This collection kicks off with 'Get Up (Whirlpool)', a wonderful stripped-back hypnotic chugger which slowly but surely churns the dancefloor into a frenzy, moving onto glacier-cool low-slung funk grinder 'Easin' In', famous for its Ice-T sampled break. On the B side Starr hits his grooving stride with 'I Just Wanna Do My Thing', a great disco-funk stomper with a raw intense vocal performance. Finally, no self-respecting Edwin Starr comp would be complete without percussion-laden hi-energy disco classic 'Contact' featured here in its full 12" version glory. Top stuff!
