Instant Funk – Got My Mind Made Up / Wide World Of Sports (1979) – Vinyl

Well the only thing that I ‘got my mind made up’ about here is that the title track may have worked at Boogie Nights (courtesy of the Magnet Leisure Centre) back in the 70s with hormonally charged teenagers but now it does nothing. I sort of suspect that even back then it would have only worked in conjunction with a couple of Malibus.

For the B side I was hoping for a starring role by Dickie Davies and on that front I was disappointed as the track is an instrumental. However while this may just be a funk jam that doesn’t really go anywhere it is in fact much better than the A side in that it is less contrived and feels more real.
