Casbah 73 - To Be Free
Essential double-A sided twelve inch release that sees the welcome return of Casbah 73 in exultant, soul-charged form.
Early support from Red Greg, Danny Krivit, Rahaan, Craig Charles, Mad Mats, and many more.
Recorded live in the studio with an excellent cast of musicians, it kicks off with 'To Be Free', a joyful disco number that oozes raw authenticity. The very talented Angela Gooden's sultry vocals ride a rich groove, anchored by a heavyweight rhythm section and featuring a sparkling string section.
Over on the flip-side, 'Doing Our Own Thing' is an exuberant instrumental jazz-funk boogie cut showing off a killer horn section to full effect. Nine minutes of peak-time euphoria that is over way too soon.
Classic in spirit yet modern in feel, this release is guaranteed to set any dance floor alight and is a more than worthy successor to last year's 'Love Saves The Day'. One of last year's hottest disco joints, well, it turns out that Casbah 73 was just warming up!
