An accurate reissue of this rare album originally released on RCA Italy in 1969.

"Dicky Oliver" is a super funky 10 track LP with furious Hammond and great horn sections. Among the tracks, "The Chicken" is a floor-killer James Brown cover, fuelled by a powerful groove. Little is known about the artist.

This album, recorded and produced in 1968 at RCA Studios in Rome, includes other two great James Brown covers: "Let Yourself Go" and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag". Covers of Hugh Masekela ("Grazing In The Grass"), Jimmy McGriff ("South West"), Cannonball Adderley ("Cannon Ball's Theme") and two original tracks written by Richard "Dicky" Oliver complete the tracklist.
