* Japanese Mini-LP Limited CD Edition, Reissue

Description (English):
Of all the Holy Grail LPs that we’ve reissued so far, this is quite possibly the rarest of the rare, with a miniscule 50 copies of the original album having been pressed up 40 or so years ago. It’s a miracle that any copies at all have survived since then, but we’ve jumped through hoops to ensure that not only have we faithfully reproduced the original, but we’ve done it with a quality that cannot be rivaled!

Marvin “Hannibal” Peterson will be a familiar name to ’70s jazz enthusiasts, but his career started with the Soulmasters in Texas back in the ’60s. As bandleader and trumpeter, they were a popular outfit around the Texas nightclub circuit with their own brand of funky jazz, soul ballads and RnB showmanship. This album manages to squeeze in all three, including the extended funky jazz workout “Our Groove”, the haunting ballad “Five Foot Even” and finishing off with a cracking version of James Brown’s “I Can’t Stand It”.

For lovers of soul, jazz, funk and all things in between, this album is for you.

1. Groove For Otis
2. Five Foot Even
3. Conversation
4. Our Groove
5. Summertime
6. I Can’t Stand It

RIDDIMATESの2年ぶりとなる新作『DIVE e.p.』をリリース!!
シュッとしたインストバンドが多い中、ガッツリ汗かきながら踊らせて、メシ食って、ユーモアも忘れないバンドRIDDIMATES。そんな彼らが4thアルバム「JOY」から2年ぶりにリリースする新作は、ライブでは既に定番の、”ブラスロッカーズ”らしさ溢れるファンキーなダンスチューン「TIME IS RICE」を含む5曲入りep。メンバーそれぞれrRIDDIMATESとは別にサポートなども行っているが、中でもCross You(T.SAX)の活動は多岐にわたり、アグレッシブに吹きまくるインストバンドだけでなくKeishi Tanakaなど歌モノをキラリと光らせるホーンアレンジにも注目が集まっている。本作では、かねてから親交のあるシンガー児玉奈央(YoLeYoLe)を招いて、Charles Wright and the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Bandによる69年のヒット曲「Loveland」をカヴァーしているのだが、彼女のウェット&キュートな歌声を最大限に引き出したriRIDDIMATE流ロックステディなアレンジは、彼等のそんな”課外授業”から得た体験がリアルに血肉となった結果かもしれない。たった5曲では物足りないが、インタールードとして収録された「BACON!!」から、来年に予定されているという噂の新作アルバムにも期待が高まるばかり!本作をひっさげ、また旅に出るRIDDIMATE。常に変化し続ける彼等の今を見届けて欲しい。
