Southern Freeez / Variations on a Theeem
40 years after it's original release, Beggars Arkive reissued classic FREEEZ debut album Southern Freeez. The second LP contains brand new tracks from the band’s leader John Rocca. Southern Freeez has been remastered and is pressed on blue/black marbled vinyl.
Freeez were a legendary group from London, known as one of the UK's main jazz-funk bands of the early 1980s…aka Brit funk. Led by John Rocca, Freeez consisted of various musicians, originally with Rocca and others including Andy Stennett (keyboards), Peter Maas (bass guitar) and Paul Morgan (drums). While they may not be a household name, if you know, you know. Freeez went on to be sampled many times, by artists including Jamie xx, Coolio, Brandy, Madlib and more.
