1. Product Details

Be With Records presents a reissue of Alan Hawkshaw/Brian Bennett/John Fiddys Hot Wax originally issued in 1976. Hot Wax is an assured KPM masterclass from a dream team line-up of Bennett Hawkshaw and Fiddy. This is what happens when all three decide to explore the latest trends in production music. The latest as of 1976 of course. Fiddys numbers are sumptuous string-led and light. Floaty soft-psych underpinned by a solid groove particularly on Taste For Living and Fresh Start. If one is into Koushik and those early Manitoba/Caribou records - and one should be - these will be appreciated. The Bennett and Bennett/Hawkshaw stuff is on another level. Capitol City oscillates between driving funk and downbeat sentiment. Name Of The Game is tough smokin funk famously sampled in 2007 by Madlib for Percee Ps Who With Me. Bop On The Rocks knocks hard and Full Throttle features a guitar solo with some of the nastiest about-to-explode fuzz one is ever likely to hear. Be With has worked with the hallowed KPM to re-issue ten of our favorites from across the KPM 1000 Series and the Themes International Music catalogue currently under KPM stewardship. Whether its killer soul-funk sweet jazz-samba scuzzed-up guitars or accidental Balearic beauty these records include some of the most innovative work from some of the most talented composers and musicians of the 20th century. These records were never readily available being originally released as a ready-made affordable alternative to commissioning music for television and radio. Consequentially the originals have been unobtainable for decades by all but the most dedicated collectors. The audio for all ten re-issues comes from the original analog tapes and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. The same care has been taken with the sleeves handing the reproduction duties over to Richard Robinson the current custodian of KPMs brand identity. 180 gram vinyl.
