Description

Although featured on James Mason's lauded - and recently reissued - 1977 album Rhythm of Life, "Funny Girl" is nowhere near as celebrated as some of the other cuts on that set ("Sweet Power Your Embrace", in particular). Happily, Dynamite Cuts has decided to put it centre stage for the first time, sticking it out on a desirable 7" single. Featuring the super-sweet vocals of Clarice Taylor, the song perfectly encapsulates Mason's loose and musically rich fusion of soul and jazz-funk. Also impressive is flipside "Dreams", a slightly looser and jazzier cut - again, with Taylor on vocal duties - that originally closed out the Rhythm Of Life LP.
