FMG-3 Cream Breaks Uphill Peace Of Mind - Kid Dynamite
For the debut of Fraternity Music Group's latest imprint, the 1st Time On 7" Series, the spotlight is on two massive cuts from the obscure '70s rock label Cream Records. Both heavy hitters from the crates of Afrika Bambaataa and ground-level breakbeat classics, "Uphill Peace Of Mind" and "Leave Your Hat On" are blue-eyed soul of the finest, funkiest quality. The instantly recognizable break from Kid Dynamite (better known as Steve Miller's backing band) has been sampled numerous times, from back-in-the-day hits by Poor Righteous Teachers and Eazy E to recent bangers by Dr. Dre and Rick Ross. The Randy Newman cover by Balcones Fault on the flip side was a sneaky Bambaataa cover-up that is finally revealed, the mid-song b-boy break a highlight that makes doubles of this long overdue 45 a must.
