TSTD returns with another trip into the musical past of the sun-drenched West Coast:
This time DJ Supermarkt unearthed 16 Soul & Funk versions of
original Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems. You can find tracks originally
performed by Fleetwood Mac, The Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates,
Steely Dan, Wings covered by big Soul & Funk legends like Aretha
Franklin, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, Brothers Johnson and more.
Most of the tracks have been recorded in the late 70s/early 80s, but
failed to become big hits and fell under the radar. Like Chaka Khan
doing a seriously funky version of Fleetwood Mac’s „Everywhere“ (from an
unreleased album recording), next to obscure reworks like Leslie
Smith’s version of „Nothin’ You Can Do About It“ by Airplay (Jay Graydon
and David Foster). There are especially surprising versions here, like
Millie Jackson’s gospel-like rendering of „This Is It“ by Kenny
Loggins/Michael McDonald, or Billy Paul’s „Black Power“-influenced
version of Paul McCartney/Wings’ „Let Em In“ and the rare cover of The
Beach Boys’ „God Only Knows“ by Betty Everett. Overall another TSTD
collection of smooth, sunny, extremely soulful and funky tracks, that
needed to be dug-out to be heard again. This is Bottled Sunshine!
