Feeling Nice Vol.4Tramp’s Feeling Nice series has positioned itself as a universally accepted essential cultural and historical document of some of the greatest unknown local vernacular American Black music of the sixties and seventies. The Feeling Nice series has been dedicated to filling in the blanks between the more well known cuts of so-called Deep Funk canon and drawing out the relationships and stories behind and between the tunes and the artists, and ultimately creating a dialogue that serves to enlighten and enliven a true anti-racist discussion of American Popular music specifically and of Global human music in general. With Feeling Nice Vol. 4, Tramp continues this important conversation, and having spent over 700 days unearthing a rousing selection across the board, offers it to you, now, as a double LP with full-color label scans, never before seen promo shots, and detailed biographical information – in some cases in the words of the artists themselves!

Believe me when I tell you, Feeling Nice 4 has got it all: Brilliant B-sides: (Donald Ray – “Strut Your Stuff”), Concealed covers: (Combined Forces – “Feelin’ Alright”), Tittyshakers: (Big Bear Revue – “Big Bear”), Dance crazes: (Donnie Sanders – “Shing-A-Ling Baby, Mr. Clean & The Cleansers – “Karate”), Obscure cuts by well known R&B stars: (Frederick Knight – “Steppin Down”), Retro German rave-ups: (Take 5+2 – “Get Your Love”), Weirdo deep funk one-offs: (Moony Moon – “Walking On The Moon”), Killers from the Caribbean: (Al Sinclair – “No That Ain’t Groovy), Basement Jams: (TNT Powerhouse – “Basement Jam”), Most talked-about new discoveries: (Living Funk – “Silver Black Summer Day”), and more and more and more … – Lucky Brown, 2017
