Luv N’ Haight
Shane “Deejay Sureshot” Hunt discovered Padgett’s self-titled 1975 debut LP while browsing through a dusty back room at an LA record store. Was it sweet soul? Disco? Dirty funk? Reggae? This record has it all, and more. Few releases encompass all of these genres in one package, but this one captures the eclectic essence of the Miami soul scene in the mid-70s. And yet tracks like “Sugar Daddy” sound amazingly contemporary. RIYL: Orgone, Quantic Soul Orchestra, Breakestra, Sharon Jones, Betty Wright.
