Remastered re-issue of the classic Top 10 album from 1982 with 4 bonus
‘Night Birds’ is the album that established Shakatak's trademark jazz-funk sound, and
contains two of the band's biggest hits, ‘Easier Said than Done’ and ‘Night
Birds’, the former reaching the No. 12 spot in 1981, the latter climbing to No.
9 in the following year.
Regarded as a jazz funk classic, this record
proved to be the LP that pushed the band into the mainstream. They have since enjoyed a number
of top twenty singles and albums and countless worldwide tours.
Faithfully restored to its original glory,
here is a deluxe expanded edition of what is widely regarded to be the bands
greatest LP to date. The album was produced by Nigel Wright who along with the
other band members created a sound that shaped a new scene and helped create a
new interest in the Jazz Funk fusion genre throughout the 80’s.
Bonus cuts include various remixes and a live
version of ‘Night Birds’ from Japan.
