Image: 1594187 Top quality remastered reissue of one of the holy grails of the Jazz Funk scene, the incredible 'Gears' LP by organ player Johnny Hammond. Originally released in 1975, this masterpiece is considered to be possibly the finest moment from legendary production and arrangement team the Mizell Brothers and it's easy to see why as this wonderful LP just oozes timeless perfection with every track. Boundary breakers at the time, they all manage to still sound as fresh as ever. Standouts include the awesome Loft classic 'Los Conquistadores Chocolates', a psychedelic sweaty floor-filling dancer which hit big at Ron Hardy's Chicago Music Box as well as in NYC, 'Shifting Gears' a seriously funky breaks and block party anthem with all the right ingredients which was heavily sampled in hip hop during the 80's and 90's, plus 'Fantasy' a big DJ Rahaan favourite and the sublime jazz funk groove of 'Tell Me What To Do'. Outstanding!
