Record Kicks has released a monster reissue of a Tropical Funk Holy Grail with The Revolution of St. Vincent’s “The Little You Say”. This 45, originally on the Wirl label has been coveted and sought after by Funk vinyl collectors for some time. Hailing from the island of St. Vincent and founded by Harold “Ploomie” Lewis in the early 1970’s, this side has been in demand by many collectors and usually carries a very high price tag. With an island heavy vibe, this organ and horn stomper will not disappoint.
The flip side features St. Maarten’s The Rolling Tones (I am not kidding) and their tune “It’s a Feeling”. Based in the Southern Dutch area of St. Vincent and formed around the same time as The Revolution by Adolphus Richardson. This cut was taken from their almost impossible to find International Sound LP, possibly one of the most difficult Tropical Funk originals to locate. Record Kicks has reissued both tunes and put them nicely on a double A side belter. Limited to 500 pieces of vinyl, this is definitely not going to last long. You can sample the Rolling Tones here.
