|JOHNNY HAMMOND GEARS Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
;; Celebrating 40 years since its first release, Johnny Hammond’s “Gears” is given the deluxe treatment on CD
& vinyl with the addition of six previously unreleased tracks and a brand new transfer from the original
;; Recognised as one of the finest jazz funk albums of all time, “Gears” was produced by the Mizell brothers
and stands alongside their work with Donald Byrd at the pinnacle of their careers.
;; Tracks such as ‘Shifting Gears’ and ‘Los Conquistadores Chocolates’ have been club classics almost since
the album was released. Hip hop and house producers have regularly used it as a source for samples.
;; The bonus cuts shine a light on the Mizell’s production process and show the strength of the material from
which the released masters were culled.
;; Hotly anticipated by club and radio, Gilles Peterson is championing this on BBC Six Music, and we expect
further support from others.
