Urban Records 12-inch reissues

Urban
Urban Records
started out in the mid 80s, predominantly as a reissue label for rare funk and rare groove tunes that were otherwise hard to find, but later developing into a fully-fledged label as the acid jazz scene emerged.

Over April and May, the best of the 12-inch singles released on the label will be reissued via Universal, each coming in the classic Urban sleeve, with the same tracklistings as the originals.

Some vintage gems from the likes of Bobby Byrd (I Know You Got Soul), James Brown (Payback), Kool and the Gang (Funky Stuff), Jackson Sisters (I Believe In Miracles) and Maceo and the Macks (Cross The Tracks), through to more contemporary tunes of the period, including the superb full-length version of James Taylor Quartet’s Theme From Starsky and Hutch.
