George Duke – I Want You For Myself
Acclaimed crate-digger turned disco re-editor KON has decided to launch his own reissue imprint, Kontemporary. The idea is simple: to accompany re-mastered original tracks with fresh rubs from the man himself. 12″ number one offers another opportunity to enjoy George Duke’s soulful, sun-kissed, disco-era jazz-funk bomb “I Want You For Myself”. On the A-side you’ll find Duke’s own impeccable 12″ version, with KON’s re-edit gracing the B. Having access to the original multi-track tapes has allowed the New York-based producer to not only include an atmospheric, extended intro (a tactic regularly used by fellow rework merchants The Revenge and Joey Negro), but also give more prominence to Duke’s superb piano solos.
