Image: 1596790 The Cosmologist continues their trip around the musical universe, focusing on the records that were formative personal influences. This one is a detour away from the clubs and casts the spotlight on the modern soul world, with these new versions kept sympathetic to that era, but in a way that will still work up a sweat on today's soulful floors.

The A side is another socio political masterpiece from 1973, from one of the era's foremost songwriters, Sam Dees. The new version keeps very true to the source, with some subtle re arrangements, augmented with a looping percussive shuffle and some cosmologist stardust sprinkled lightly on the mix.

The flipside goes back even further to 1968, another classic soul groove from Barbara Acklin. Here the Cosmologist extends the main vocal track, with the lesser known piano version from Young Holt Unlimited, to give it a new twist and extends the listening pleasure to just under 5 minutes.

Under the influence, and always under the radar...

Track Listing:

A1. Sam Dees - Child of the street 2015
B1. Barbara Acklin - Same Girl 2015 Available from 05.06.2015
