Freddie Hubbard / Sylvester ‎– Ugly Edits Vol. 3

Ugly Edits ‎– UGEDT 03
Vinyl, 12", White Label, Unofficial Release, 33 ⅓ RPM


A Freddie Hubbard Little Sunflower (Theo Parrish Re-Edit)
B Sylvester Dance (Theo Parrish Re-Edit)



Original limited white label. Some copies have hand written catalog number on the label, but no song titles are given. Shortly after the release, it was <a href="">bootlegged</a> with new titles added, and released from the UK. A couple years later, this original US version was re-released with a "spray paint" looking catalog number printed on the label (similar to the later volumes of the Ugly Edits series).

A side samples Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower."
B side uses loops from Sylvester's "Dance (Disco Heat)", with the notable vocal sample "got a match", from which the UK bootleg derived its title for this track.

Whilst Theo has added his signature to this edit and I can't help but love it, a bit of house history should be added to this release.
The release notes above helpfully indicate the Sylvester connection, but I did wonder if this might also be an Ode to Armando Gallup (the princely producer behind some of the most classic of acid tracks who passed away sometime in the nineties). Check out Armandos Overdrive EP - on Housetime - and the track entitled 'Dance With Me' - where Armando uses the same loop (enlightened sampling!) that Theo also cut / twisted and spliced from the closing moments of Sylvesters awesome original. The funk is just dripping from it, no matter how simple - it almost has words embedded in the sounds. In daydreams I'd love to hear Sylvester / Theo and Armando rip it up together somehow - maybe only in Ugly Edit heaven now...
