The Deirdre Wilson Tabac’s sole album is a beautiful blend of funk, jazz and pop. Possessing the complex grooves and truly soulful weirdness that The Rotary Connection pedalled so brilliantly, the LP didn’t connect with audiences on its original release. In the decades since, it has attracted a considerable cult following and has correspondingly become increasingly tricky to locate. Is it good? Actually, no, it’s better than that, even: three cracking vocalists, versatile and engaged session players, then-contemporary takes on ‘Dock of the Bay’, ‘Get Back’ and ‘I Cant Keep From Crying Sometimes’. Why it didn’t sell better is a mystery.
The first officially licensed vinyl reissue of this undoubted masterpiece of freaky funk-rock – limited to just 500 copies!
