Cafe Regio - Gary The Master Blaster Release

Cafe Regio - Gary The Master Blaster Release cover

Gary The Master Blaster "Cafe Regio's"

Well we finally our hands on the first pressings of the magnificent "Cafe Regio's" by Gary The Master Blaster. This after rejecting two seperate sets of T.P.'s until we got the perfect 7" in our hands at last!

This has never been on vinyl before and is backed with an alternative instrumental take by the Master Blaster Band. The story has been well documented elsewhere on Soul Source but essentially this was an updated version of Isaac Hayes' "Cafe Regio's" (the 'B' side of "Shaft" no less) which was recorded in 1998 and then overlaid with an original 1970 radio rap from Gary The Master Blaster - the legendary radio D.J. from Miami radio station WCKO who established a huge local audience as a result of his organic early radio 'raps' which were typical of the personality DJ's on U.S. black music stations in the early 1970's.

We think this is a unique record which sounds like a breath of fresh air when played loud and is almost like a Detroit uptempo version of the original Ike Hayes tune with such a Soulful DJ on top of it. A real one-off recording!


Gary The Master Blaster "Cafe Regio's"


Over 700 downloads in the last 4 weeks alone. We've pressed exactly 1000 copies and will be going to wholesale and export this week. We think this record will appeal to different scenes and will go quickly - at least that's the plan so our fingers are crossed! There's already significant orders coming in from some unexpected places so well worth grabbing in our opinion! Expect some radio plays over the next few weeks too - it sounds brilliant on radio and just tremendous over a club system! We're raring to go go go..........

Since this track came about completely via Soul Source we're offering a special price to all Soul Source members of £7.99 (Retail Price is £9.99)! Please PM me if you want one.

Wholesale enquiries are also welcome - just PM me for details.
