Alan Tew's driving jazz-rock, sleuth-funk masterpiece, Drama Suite Part I is finally reissued to sate your appetites for arguably the very best library two-parter in existence. Originally released in 1976 but wonderfully timeless, Drama Suite Part I is at the top of every library funk collector's list. Racing out the gate, the gritty crime funk of "The Detectives" makes for a thrilling, wild ride. A dramatic action theme, it's packed with strident playing and bags of attitude. There follows drama-tinged, horn-heavy, wah-wah-laced, conga-enhanced, synth-riddled tracks for neat segues and maximum funk fever. As with all of our KPM re-issues, the audio for Drama Suite Part I comes from the original analogue tapes and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. And as usual, the sleeve reproduction duties were handed over to Richard Robinson, the current custodian of KPM's brand identity.
