James Last – Inner City Blues (CaZ Edit)


James Last’s Kraut Funk version of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Inner City Blues’ is one of those rare covers that has secured classic status in its own right. Last is a German big band leader who has sold over 70 million records and recorded more than 150 albums. And in 1971 he included this fantastic jazz-flecked cover on his Voodoo Party LP. And now we have a slightly beefed-up, DJ friendly edit by way of CaZ, a production duo hailing from Atlanta.

Perfect, languorous summer listening:
