Identical to Fired Up 'N' Kickin' but no "6" on labels. A1, A3, B1 and B2 remixed at Power Station, A2, A4 and B3 remixed at Media Sound. A Fatback Production. Alternate title from labels: Fired Up And Kickin'. Matrix, Runout (Hand-etchings runoutarea side A): 77 SP-1-6718 AS-AD JR.

The side concludes with "Can't You See," a laid-back tune, real laid-back, so laid-back you wonder why it's on the Foot Stompin' side. I'm Fired Up" kicks off the Freak Party side; the vocals are muddy and the words (the few there are) are hard to distinguish, but so what? Fatback is about the beat, the rhythms and the musicianship. Boogie Freak" has a more infectious beat, and the lyrics are more interesting than "Fired," though they ripped the girlish backing vocals from the Ohio Players.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). 1. 30. I'm Fired Up. 5:33. This album is strangely devided into two halfs-the 'freak party' side (aimed at disco lovers I guess) and a 'foot stompin' side for funk fans. There is one little problem here though:almost the entire album is FUNKY BEYOND ALL BELIEF!!!"I'm Fired Up","Boogie Freak" and "Get Out On The Floor" are highly rhythmic grooves filled with clapping percussion and.

Fired Up 'n' Kickin'. Fatback - I'm Fired Up 05:33. Fatback - Boogie Freak 05:50. Fatback - Get Out On The Dance Floor 05:49. Fatback - At Last 04:32. Fatback - I Like Girls 07:38. Fatback - Snake 07:52. Fatback - Can't You See 06:38.

Fired Up 'n' Kickin' Fatback. Wow they really cut some tracks these boys. Our umpteenth Fatback outing comes funkin' right on through, with head funkateers Gerry Thomas and Bill Curtis driving their lean mean funk machine straight across the dance floor. So what's your flavour soul boy, the 'Freak Party' side - I'm fired up boogie freak, get out on the dance floor-at last - or a little 'Foot Stompin', featuring the oft sampled 'I Like Girls'. So party party, freaky or as you like it, hey look here comes 1978 again.
