Big Break alert! The titles of this double A-sider give away the game plan of Fraternity Music Group's latest 7-inch reissue: classic, heavy breaks courtesy of two late '60s southern soul gems. Betty Harris's "There's A Break In The Road" is an Allen Toussaint production that features the mighty Meters as the backing band, and fully lives up to its promise with a monster drum track that bangs throughout. "Big Bad John" was famously sampled for Big Daddy Kane's anthem "Warm It Up" but is a solid deep South funk cut in its own right. The labels of these fully licensed classics are precise, full-color reproductions of the original pressings.
