Product Details


Skull Snaps's legacy isn't defined by a prolific catalog or the longevity of their career. In fact, this album from 1973 is the group's only album, yet it was enough to earn them a place as one of the more mysterious and fascinating funk ensembles of the era. Previously known as The Diplomats, the group-featuring Sam Culley, Erv Waters and George Bragg-became the Skull Snaps after several notable releases (including "She's the One"), and their self-titled album is nine tracks worth of gruff, unpolished vocals, crisp drums and driving pace that hasn't diminished with age. "I'm Your Pimp" echoes the jazz-funk fusion sound of Blaxploitation cinema, while the second single "Snapped" is fueled by a tough horn break. But the real jewel here is "It's a New Day," the group's signature song, who's unmistakable opening drum break has become a staple ingredient of hip-hop cuts by Ol Dirty Bastard, Das EFX, Eric B. & Rakim, Digable Planets, DJ Shadow and others. In continuing our series of rare, vintage funk reissues, Get On Down is proud to present Skull Snaps lost classic in a special edition in both CD and vinyl formats. Both come in deluxe paste-on gatefold packaging, while the LP also features a sticker sheet (13 Die Cut Stickers in all) and a giant 24" x 24" poster of the original album art.
