Product Description:

Originally released in the U.S. as KEEP ON MOVIN'. The 10th Anniversary Edition contains six remixes previously unreleased on CD.
Personnel: Shikisha, Carol Wheeler, Rose Windross (vocals); Jazzie B. (rap vocals); Kushite (flute); Simon "The Funky Ginger" Law (piano, keyboards); Crispin (percussion); Aitch B. (background vocals).
Where previous British translations of classic US black music styles had been hit and miss affairs, Jazzie B revolutionised contemporary soul music on both sides of the channel with the sublime (and occasionally ridiculous) Club Classics. Caron Wheeler's emotive performance on the opening track, 'Keep On Movin'' (the album's title in the US) set the tone of the album. It's not flawless - Jazzie B, genius producer and all-round music man, may be many things, but a rapper he is not. And a second great single, 'Back To Life', is included here only in 'a cappella' form. When Jazzie and Nellee Hooper's ideas and musical instincts coalesce the results boast a feel-good factor and warmth absent from recent soul music.
