SummaryA couple years ago, Carl Atkins of the Stark Reality called Egon and said, "I know you're into the regional, rare Funk thing and I was just talking to a friend of mine who has some master tapes for an album you might want to check out." That man turned out to be Stanton Davis, whose original album Brighter Days, recorded with his band Ghetto Mysticism, saw regional release in Boston, MA, in the mid 70s. An awesome mix of styles that runs the gamut from Jazz, Funk, Soul and beyond, the high point of the Brighter Days is arguably the epic "Things Cannot Stop Forever." A Jazz-Funk number that defies categorization, we can only approximate its sound by describing it as something the Mizell Brothers might have produced, had they kept the edginess that defined their early 70s work throughout the decade. Perfect for the Soul-Cal line, this 12" contains two new, Davis-approved mixes of "Things Cannot Stop Forever", a knocking, beefed up version of Davis's original mix; and an instrumental remix by Egon and Kelldada on the flip.
