Boomkat Product Review:
Philadelphian jazz and soul legend Spanky Wilson cut some classic funk records with a club-friendly feel during the 1970s, recording for the Westbound imprint with collaborators like producer Al Kent and David Van De Pitte, the man who arranged Marvin Gaye's 'What's Going On'. This disc gives the fullest account to date of Wilson's output during the period. "Over the last 30 years Spanky Wilson has become established as a successful jazz vocalist. But there is a world of difference between concert hall jazz and the hip beats producers and sweaty night clubs where she has found herself recently. Her collaborations with DJ/producer Quantic have brought her prominence with the same crowd of DJs, collectors and beat-heads that have spent the last decade and a half desperately seeking her 60s and 70s recordings."
