SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "GETO BOYS" /// "THE POSSESSED" - Glass Candy
This ultra-rare 12" by the awe inspiring Glass Candy is a fascinating mélange of three songs. Samples taken from The Geto Boys 1991 Hit "Mind Playing Tricks On Me" and Isaac Hayes' "Hung Up On My Baby" from 1974 are mixed to an astonishing effect. Ida No sings Sugar Boy Crawford's "Iko Iko" over the beat. One of those super-precious rarities in the vibrant catalogue of Italians Do It Better. Johnny Jewel just made it available for download on his Soundcloud. Such a treasure! Oh yeah and we also have another vintage masterpiece by Alberto Rossini to accompany Glass Candy's latest single "The Possessed" taken from the label's most anticipated "After Dark 2" compilation.
"... FOR A GOOD TIME... CALL 1-800-GLASS-CANDY..."
