The L.B.'s 'Broasted or Fried' (Rocafort)
4th January 2021
The L.B.'s / Soul's Path Ensemble
'Broasted or Fried' / 'Stop Tryin'
2020 was a year where normal record purchasing was firmly out of bounds for me with zero DJ income, consequently, there were quite a few records that were missed. Here's one such 45 that I damn well need to pick up asap. Throughout my 30 years of DJing, the classic Willie Bobo rare groove dancefloor gem 'Broasted or Fried' has rarely left my box or my heart, it epitomises everything I love about jazz, funk and Latin, it really is one of the best grooves ever made. So here on this Rocafort 45 from November is a really really great version by The L.B.'s, staying true to the original vibe, this baby swings and swings hard. If anything it's just a bit more 'jazz' and that ain't no bad thing at all. Flip over for 'Stop Tryin', a gorgeous groove on the down low, a jazzy joint, a sultry swinger, and featuring none other than Delvon LaMarr. Maaaaaaan, how did I miss this 45! 100% recommended.
