This week it's all about the "douze points" for some folks whilst the rest of us only have one winner, the long awaited release of the No'West remix EP of Marcus Malone & The Motor City Hustlers' Interstate 75 EP (see review of the original HERE).

They've roped in Craig Charles (he of Liverpool) on the Eurovision coverage, but Sir Craig's electoral fanbase is in soul 'n' funk and he's a fan of the original and the new remix having played it a couple of times on his influencial BBC 6 Music show already.

As the Beedle/Wallace/Morris team reorganise the original version, especially falling for those Stax horns, the big Hammond and the "northern" hand claps on the instrumental] as this will fill out the Baker's Lounge all-day long.

And don't forget that this is the team that brought you our current #1, 77:78's Love Said (Let's Go) (Wallace & Morris Rework) (see review HERE) and the outstanding Robb Scott & Leee John's 'Gotta Get Over You' (see review HERE) and the wheels keep on turning out these great hits.
