Volume two of Nik Weston's Lost Soul & Funk Gems continues with a track from Loleatta Holloway who sadly passed away in 2011 . Loleatta was probably best known for her disco classics including 'Hit & Run' & the much sampled 'Love Sensation'. In 1971 however she cut a dope club funk 45 cut for Fantasy sub label Galaxy with 'Bring It On Up' with soaring vocals, southern styled guitar and great brass and fatback drums. A perfect example indeed of 1970's female funk . On the flipside an incredible super soul drenched previously album only gem ''I'll Be Around '' from Ron Henderson And Choice Of Colour . The track appeared on the 1976 'Soul Junction' LP on two labels Chelsea and Choice Cut but has never been before on a 45 single in it's own right. Dramatic strings lead way to spine tingling vocals and arrangement to die for. This particular track has been in Nik's top 10 tunes of all time for 20 years or so and been a labour of love to finally get it licensed and released on Mukatsuku Records for a new audience to enjoy perhaps for the first time who may not have come across these beauties before. DJ support from Gilles Peterson,Marc Mac (4 Hero), Dr Bob Jones, Phil Levine,Dom Servini, Shuya Okino,DJ Snowboy, Dean Rudland and more
