NEW RELEASE // Lamont Butler - Ungodly War (Al Kent's Heavenly Edit) / Get Up And Praise The Lord  7" 



Ungodly War is one of the many standouts from our 2020 reissue of Lamont Butler’s one and only album It’s Time For A Change. Taking inspiration from jazz, soul and funk, Ungodly War is a dynamic track recorded some 50+ years ago in Louisville, Kentucky.


For this release we wanted to try something a little different and so, for the first time on Miles Away, we’ve enlisted the help of a musician to add a little somethin’ somethin’. Someone who has spent a lifetime hoarding, editing and compiling rare soul and disco records. There was really only one person at the top of our list and he goes by the name Al Kent.


Al’s sound is big and his edit flows from the off, allowing everything we love about the original to shine through perhaps even more brightly than before. With a little beefiness added to the drums and a subtle restructuring in parts, the result is an exemplary 7” bullet ready for the dance floor. Set for release on the 9th July.
