Bet you didn’t see this coming, huh? A few additions to the Ced Gee Special I ran alast year. Thanks to Tuff City‘s repress, I can now bring you the Ced’s two contribution’s to Funkmaster Wizard Wiz‘s catalog. “Grand Concourse & 183rd” is a quality BX anthem set to the reworked drums of Ultra‘s original “Travelling At The Speed Of Thought” (aka The Rolling Stones “Honky Tonk Woman”) with some Kool & The Gang horns thrown in for good measure. The A-side, “I Ain’t Wid Dat” mines more familiar territory, but as usual, even the most well-worn break sounds better after some quality time in the Ultra Lab (tinfoil wallpaper and the whole nine).
For hardcore Ultra fanatics, let’s not forget the Delta Force instrumental jam from long-forgotten R&B dame Sybil‘s self-titled debut on Next Plauteau. “Bad Beats Suite” features snippets of the vocals from “I Wanna Be Where You Are”, and further proves Ced’s versatility behind the boards as he flips a standard Jackson 5 remake into a late night club creeper.
