One great disc divided into two unmissible halves


This marks the second helping of “Lost & Found” gems. This time the focus is on underground dance music from black artists in the fifties and sixties. The maestro’s for this ride through the glorious past: Keb Darge and Paul Weller. The legendary out-spoken Scotsman, Keb Darge (who also happens to posses ninja like fighting skills), has been around the Northern soul and funk scene since the start and began his career as a dancer. In fact, he’s the one responsible for first bringing the scene to London. Really…mad history right here. Guy has compiled more compilations for BBE than any other DJ selling close to 200,000 CDs and vinyl over a 10-year span. There’s a reason why Keb has achieved legendary status among the musical elite… guy has more musical knowledge about what was happening in the ‘40s to ‘70s than anyone else I could think of. His BBE compilations are a perfectly reflection of the man’s depth.

Paul Weller is an acclaimed Rock star and Soul music collector. Starting out with the very successful punk-rock band The Jam (1976-1982), Weller then went on to branch out musically to a more soulful style with The Style Council (1983-1989). In 1991 he re-established himself as a successful solo artist, and continues to remain a respected singer, lyricist and guitarist, a fact reaffirmed by his recent awarding of the 2009 Brit Award for “Best Male Solo Artist”. He is also the principal figure of the 1970’s Mod revival and is often referred to as the Modfather. Weller has stated a wide range of influences throughout his musical career, frequently listing The Small Faces, The Beatles and The Who, as well as 1960s and 1970s soul music. Paul is also no stranger to the world of compilations and has contributed to the Back To Mine and Under the Influence Series.

I’m so looking forward to this disc coming out January 19, 2010
