After my techno mix and Alexander T’s pure house mix, Funky Pizza goes back to its funkiness.
In this episode you are going to listen to some soul and disco edits and original tracks from George Clinton and Grandmaster Melle Mel.
Some curiosity about “White Lines (Don’t Don’t Do It)” by Melle Mel. It was released on Sugar Hill Records in 1983 and warns against the dangers of cocaine, addiction, and drug smuggling.
When originally released on the record was credited to Grandmaster & Melle Mel (some international issues carried the credit Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel). This was done to mislead the general public into believing that Grandmaster Flash participated on the record, when in fact he played no part and had already left the Sugar Hill Records label the previous year.
Now click play, relax, enjoy today’s slice of pizza and STAY FUNKY!
