TOM COLLINS “DO IT”


A pretty fun and physical mover this one! Written, produced and arranged by Joey Badlotto (excellent name) who seems to have existed in the same universe as Patrick Adams, Red Greg Carmichael and Leroy Burgess based on his late 70’s credits with Bumblebee Unlimited, The Universal Robot Band and Inner Life. A couple of years after “Do It” he hits a similar level of fun and physicality with Sizzle’s “Keep On Tryin'” on Sutra (which is probably worth flipping straight over to the dub if playing it outside the home). Neither are exercises in virtuosity or rocket science but something he does just hits the spot.

This one’s the only release on Ursa Records as far as Discogs or I am aware. Huge shame because that silver ink looks phenomenal against theĀ blue label.
