Somewhat overdue, but just to add on to the previous post - a bit more about the recent unofficial repressing of a rare acetate of two songs - "Thousand Finger Man" and "Dancin' & Prancin" from Candido's 1979 Salsoul album.
As far as I know, these were very limited pressings, only available at Juno and Rush Hour, starting sometime around November/December. Initially said to have been a limited pressing of only 300 copies (which included a little info-sheet with a scan of the original acetate), it appears a second run was issued towards the end of 2013 after the first pressings sold out (minus the info sheet and where my copy appears to be from).
Granted, the sound quality is far from perfect - after all, it is a re-pressing, and a re-pressing of an acetate, no less; however beyond sound quality, the recordings themselves seem quite a bit better than demo quality. According to the info sheet, there are no mixing credits given on the original acetate, so these appear to have been early versions of these songs, before they were further mixed/polished up for the album.
Listen: Candido - Dancin & Prancin' (Unreleased Version)
Joe Cain and arranged by Louis Small (more on them in the previous post), with Norman Durham (bass) and Woody Cunningham (drums) backing Candido - one can definitely hear more than a few shades of the sound Cunningham and Durham (and Louis Small) would craft on their debut album as Kleeer not long after.
