Tony Simmons / Soul Shack - I can’t let you go / Galactic FunkLABEL: Record Shack
Brit Funk at it’s finest! Tony Simmons eye-wateringly expensive ’83 jam ‘I can’t let you go’ backed with Soul Shack’s cosmic masterpiece ‘Galactic Funk’ from 1980, reissued for a new generation.
Stepping up first ‘I can’t let you go’, slaps a smile on your face before you’ve even got 30 seconds in.

On the flip, a cosmic kaleidoscope in the form of Soul Shack’s ‘Galactic Funk’. Slap bass at boiling point, synth lines to tingle the spine and raucous chants to send your head to another dimension.
