Emotional Rescue returns for a third series of Konduko lost classics. After shining a light via the King Sporty and Noel Williams reissues, now looking at artists who released with the label, working closely with Williams to bring his unique sound to their performance. First is Phillip James and Lloyd Campbell, a.k.a. The Blues Busters. One of the most successful vocal duos to come out of 1960's Jamaica. Progressing from cabaret shows to touring with Sam Cooke in the space of a year, they went on to record singles with the likes of Bluebeat, Treasure Isle and Trojan.

Moving onto New York, their Cooke inspired soul harmonies proved popular on albums for Dynamic Sounds and Scepter, before making the flight to Miami and letting the funk-machine that was Noel Williams loose. The resultant album, You've Got To Keep On Moving, offers the two highly prized songs Do What You Want To Do To It and Keep On Moving.

These driving disco funk bombs, backed by the in-house Deep Root Rockers band and Betty James on vocals, appear for the first time on 12 inch. If not enough, as always, the B-side is given to a favoured producer - the welcomed back Dan Tyler (Idjut Boys / Noid) and his NAD moniker. He turns Keep On Moving in to an unrelenting long-form disco-dub that could just be an anthem for a new summer of love.
