Who are these mysterious Wizardz?
Here we have a very hard release entitled Boogie Slyde from the year 1984 that has been floating around the internet for a few months. 1984, eh? It was pretty much unheard of for an obscure funk group to do an instrumental only one sided 12" in the early 80's as they would be trying to push an A side vocal to get radio play. Still, I can see how one could be confused by such a heavy hitting and authentic sounding cut. It was almost a bit painful to watch some people spend top dollar for this joint on ebay for a minute there. That being said, there aren't too many of these babies floating around so it might just be worth it. Don't blame Disco Tom for keeping this release on the sly, he finally just received his personal copy from the head Wizard only yesterday and he played guitar on this record!
A shout out to Sheela for the wizardz image as well as the fresh new BE logo.
