One More Day (Kenny Dope Mix)/ All The Love We Lost (Kenny Dope Mix)
7" Vinyl Single Record
Cincinnati is a town with a thick soul heritage, James Brown and Bootsy Collins flag south western Ohio for all fans of the genre; these two towering banners cast huge shadows in which innumerable recordings languish waiting for new amplification. Vass Corporation is one prime example, an obscure group tied to Cincy soul veteran Kenny Smith (see Shake It Records recent retrospective One More Day,) the groups only two known recordings, originally intended to be a single in their day - sees their first release here some 35 yrs late. Collector and local music historian Chris Burgan teams up with Kay-Dee Records, for this first 45 in the new Iceburg series, an imprint focused on shadowy treasure from the Queen City. Chris pokes around in the dark with a flashlight, and Kenny Dope comes in like EMS, breathing life and back into these buried bodies, additionally giving them a good shock with his peerless remixillator. One More Day is up-tempo funky soul - with a huge break leading into a fit group vocal call and response sure be played in the club. The B-side, a ballad: All The Love We Lost, delivers sorrow over heavy drums. Kay-Dee Records is proud to present this belated but much deserving first issue...
