Some nasty Italian acid jazz funk for you. “Say It Again” borrows heavily from the gut funk of “Good Good Feeling” by War and lays it on with vocals by none other than CeCe Rogers, psychedelic guitar riffs and live instrumentation that keeps it loose and oh so funky.

Ernesto Djédjé was a huge star on the Ivory Coast in his day and listening to “Ziboté,” it makes perfect sense. Catchy vocals, great instrumentation, groovy rhythms, and—although rare for West African records from the 70s—the recording is crystal clear and expertly mixed. One look at the cover and you know it’s gonna be funky.

Most re-edits suck. Fortunately there are a bunch of solid re-editors out there: Rahaan, Jamie 3:26 and Cratebug, to name a but a few, who take great songs and give them just the right touch to squeeze new excitement out of them without leaving gaudy fingerprints all over the place.
