Get On Out There
Both of these tunes are from the early 80s and are somehow previously unreleased. Jay Stovall played with several bands before finally putting together Machine in 1977 at a time when disco soul and R&B were all in a happy and endless state of cross-pollination. That is embodied in 'Get On Out There', a killer bit of disco with nice raw claps cantering way over a strident beat that comes with a mandatory diva vocal. Flip it over and you'll find a much more sentimental and slow motion mood on 'Why', a rueful and reflection love song riding on lo-fi drums with gloriously soaring vocals.
