Saturday Scratch #47 - Sonny and Debby

Following yesterday's humidity-fest and little of the predicted overnight rain to cool things down, this morning dawned thick, mild and muggy. We had a coffee crisis looming in the house. We were almost out of paper filters and would never have made it through the weekend, so I dashed off across the marsh to pick up fresh supplies from town. It took me a little under an hour to walk there and back and I returned soaked in sweat, looking like the proverbial drowned rat, but after a refreshing shower and with a brew in hand, I'm ready to face the day.

Here are Sonny & Debby from 1978 with 'Sweat Suit', which, depending on your point of view, is either a parody of, or an homage to the contemporary hit 'Uptown Top Ranking'. A particular tip of the hat to the uploader of this one, for creating a custom discomix of the tune by segueing into Scratch's echo-laden dub version.
