BLUE FEATHER - CALL ME UP/LET’S FUNK TONIGHT

Dutch soul and funk band Blue Feather was founded by brothers Ed and Ronald Brouwer in 1976. Soon Jan Willem Weeda, Dirk Nusink and Rob Hoelen joined and together they developed a mix of quality 80's funk/disco, a unique sound for a Dutch band. The first single “It's Love” came out in 1980 but it was the 1981 released double a-sided 12-inch with the long versions of “Call Me Up” and “Let's Funk Tonight” that gave the band success. “Call Me Up” is a light playful vocal song while “Let's Funk Tonight” contains a tight funk/disco groove with a long instrumental bass and drum break.

ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK (RUUD BOS) - NAAKT OVER DE SCHUTTING (NAKED OVER THE FENCE)

Naakt Over De Schutting (Naked Over The Fence), the 1973 movie was loosely based on a book written by Rinus Ferdinandusse. Described as a “sriller” (sarcastic thriller) this obscure B-movie was directed by Frans Weisz. It features a silly plot, a comic karate fight and a not-so spectacular tram chase all the way to Artis Zoo, Amsterdam. The soundtrack is fantastic, it features 16 tracks in a blend of jazz-funk, easy-listening, soul-jazz and vocal pop-rock. It was composed by Ruud Bos, one of the best Dutch composers for soundtracks. He wrote, arranged and composed stunning tracks for this very sought-after album. Standout tracks “Get It Now”, “Model Session”, and especially “Naked Plus”, with tight drumming, piano-chords & walking bass, are great examples of the sexploitation, jazz-funk and breaks style, and are sampled and used by many hip hop artists.
