Notes

Back to back soul-funk gems as used by Afrika Bambaataa in his classic rough and ready live DJ turntablist b-boy throw-down, the "Death Mix".Edwin Starr's 1977 cut "I Just Wanna Do My Thing" came while Edwin still had the funk - a year before he went worldwide discotastic across the crowded disco floor with "Contact". Bam lifts the bassline and hooky horn riff from this cut. On the flip Mr Freak himself Rick James deliver the P-Funky "Fire It Up" - Bam knicked the opening funk break and bells for the "Death Mix".
