Description

Washington D.C-based Jim Bennett is probably known for his numerous contributions to the "go-go" sound during the early-to-mid 1980s. Before that, he was a mainstay of the D.C funk scene, right at the moment when "go-go" was beginning to become a fully codified style of its' own. "You Win Some You Lose Some" was recorded in 1981, and sounds like it was inspired, in part, by "E Flat Boogie", a 1980 proto-go-go funk jam from future scene legends Trouble (later known as Trouble Funk). The A-side "Part 1", which boasts chanted vocals, rubbery slap bass from Bennett and some seriously punchy horn work, is particularly potent. Both sides sound like a party in the studio that we're eavesdropping on, such is their excitable vibrancy.
