Lifted from his Capitol Records 1978 LP "New Warrior" but also released as a 7" promo..."groove, (aint no doubt about it)" is one of those tunes that used to rock the old london warehouse parties in the 8T`s..
As well as Keyboardist Lyle the LP was produced by Wayne Henderson and included a top A-list of players - Harvey Mason, Sunship, Paulinho Da Costa, Roland Bautista, Joe Blocker, Nathaniel Philips, David T. Walker and Michael Boddicker, plus background vocals by Ron Banks, Gregory Matta, Augie Johnson, Jim Gilstrap, Vance Tenort, Alexandra Brown, Angela Winbush, Martinette Jenkins and Stephanie Spruill...Pheww!
Bobby Lyle - groove (ain`t no doubt about it)
"New Warrior, reflect on the past, acknowledge the present and move forward with faith, helping to create tomorrow - that your song may be both a balm to a troubled world, and an inspiration to future warriors who will inherit your legacy."

The Elephant in the Room is a documentary following British filmmaker Dean Puckett through his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement: a global movement of ‘alternative thinkers’ who believe that the official explanation about what happened on 9/11 is totally or partially inaccurate.
(The majority of the 9/11 Commission members have now publicly gone on record to express their conviction that the Bush government agreed to lie about the official story.)
The filmmakers travel from middle England, across Europe and to New York for the six year anniversary of the attacks, where the film takes one final twist as we are introduced to the 9/11 first responders who are suffering from various grave health difficulties due to the toxic dust that they breathed in trying to help their country during the weeks after this tragic event.
Told with a personal hands on approach that avoids advancing any one position, the film asks the question: are these crazy conspiracy thinkers? Or is 9/11 Truth a credible political movement?
Also available in 10 parts on YouTube
Conspiracy theory or hidden truth? The 9/11 enigmas..

Arguably one of the finest funk classics , The Eddy Jacobs Exchange "Pull My Coat", released on Columbia in `69 and later given a re-rinse on the Jazzman label, is a hard-groovin` drum snapping, JB`s styled number that has been smashing the underground funk & hip-hop scenes for years before 7" singles first started changing hands for silly money on t`interweb! (original copies going @ $125 large ones).....Enjoy!

Originating outta the East-Side of London, Bustawidemove has been djing and producing music for over 10 years. Coming from a DJ/Sound System background. He cut his teeth DJing "Jungle" in the mid 90's with ledgendary sound systems Exodus and Headfuck. Being a big fan of the UK steppers scene he put aside his jungle selection and turned to Reggae, regularly playing at Reggae Roast parties in London. He`s also a member of the Live band Step 13.
Keep an eye on this guy cause there`s "big tings a gwan" from him in the future.
Busta has kindly allowed me to offer up the un-released tune here for y`all, so grab it while you can....respex my man!

Coming on the flipside of Timothy McNearly`s own SHAWN label track "Funky Movement No.2". The Laid back flutey funk of "Sagittarius Black" is in my humble mind so much better. The intro flutey swells helps the drum beat kick in while the wah wah and the piano electric keeps it chugging along...So simple so nice! Given a 2008 re-issue on US funky label Truth & Soul
