On Patrol (Tuff Stuff): Control- Control (19??)
Do you even see how dope this cover is. Do you. I snagged this over at Soul Funk, one of those scrappin', bargain-bin-style blogs that doesn't always provide information or dates. No matter. I got it on the strength of the cover alone, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the contents (at least, the twelve-and-a-half minutes/two songs worth of content provided by Soul Funk- is this a single? who knows) were nearly as thin and hard and funky as the art might suggest. True, I might not be so keen on these brittle ghostbuster-funk tracks if it weren't for the perfect image in my head when I listen, but all art is a collection of disparate influences, and sometimes one ought not be afraid to conflate the packaging with the product. Control is awesome. Control is On Patrol. Control is tuff stuff for your car's tape deck. Believe.
