Image: 1593963 Third instalment in the Stargazer series of unearthed classics from Italy's 80s 'Afro Funky' scene. Neatly packaged on two loud-pressed vinyl 12"s, this compilation includes a raft of in-demand and hard-to-find cuts which found cult status in legendary clubs such as Cosmic and Typhoon. The first 12" boasts Brian Bennett's seminal oft-sampled space funk odyssey 'Solstice', synth-crazy future disco from Methusalem, cerebral electro jazz-funk from Weather Report, plus big Baldelli play 'West Coast Drive', an Arpadys-produced slo-mo disco-funk holy grail, finally closing with a very useful DJ-friendly extended edit of Manfred Mann's Earth Band's heavy pounding tribal LP cut 'Somewhere In Africa'. Disc 2 keeps up the pressure with the savage heavy drum funk of Dogs Of War's classic 'Future Jungle' and John Ozila's searing disco anthem 'Funky Boogie'. Flip over for the highly sought-after proto-electro funk workout 'Was Dog a Doughnut', an ahead of its time B-Boy anthem from the unlikely source of Cat Stevens, followed by 'All You Want Is More' - a captivating tabla-driven chugger from world-pop icon and ex-Grange Hill star Sheila Chandra, and finally Rosebud's incredible disco version of Pink Floyd's 'Money'. Great package of essential Afro Funky classics!
