V/A - Slow Grind Fever Vol 8
|Slow grinding R&B/soul/exotica tunes as they are being played in a club in Melbourne/Australia. Around midnight on the last Saturday of every month, an assemblage of juiceheads, grifters, kittens, dandies, and derelicts gather in a dimly-lit, smoke-filled room and dance together real slow. These are some of the records we dance to... Thanks to all the flute players and backing singers of yore for flavoring these old records up just like we like them." --Richie1250 Compilation by Mohair Slim (Slow Grind Fever resident) and Slow Grind Fever mastermind, Richie1250. Liner notes by Richie1250.
