FAIRY FUNK - TIM TUCKER
now available in the ebay store
VIDEO OF THE DAY
Tim wrote "Love Passed Me By" for Veronica to sing including some of his own vocal sketches in the demo. A version by the female singer never materialized, but we were able to rescue this one from a decaying cassette and give this funk track new life.
Third release for RYSQUE Records out of Sacramento, CA. The label specializes in rare vintage boogie and drum machine soul in the same vein as PPU (who distributes their records) and unearths unreleased cassette jams with this joint from the Cali-based Tim Tucker. Apparently the dudes at the Beat Electric blog helped put this one together by befriending Tim Tucker and pestering him to dig up old recordings from the era. Reluctantly Tim dug up some old tapes, and now some 20+ years later we can all enjoy the drum machine soul of "C'Kret"! If you dug the lo-fi sound of Dam-Funk's Adolescent Funk, you'll definitely dig this...
