Taken from his 1977 album Cosmic Wind, Mike Theodore is one of the unsung soul and funk music heroes of the seventies and eighties. Working with the prolific Dennis Coffey on the classic Westbound hit, CJ & Co’s Devil’s Gun and many more, the duo’s working relationship is one of disco’s finest.

Anyway, one of the strongest cuts off the record, ‘Moon Trek’ is a bumpy yet cosmic funk-fuelled driver. Mellow synths and horns combine wonderfully, helped probably by the exquisite mixing skills of a certain Mr. Tom Moulton. If this doesn’t melt away your Tuesday blues then I’ll have to take a trek to the moon myself.
