This is a real bubbler, a total reworking of Bill Withers' "Use Me". It sounds like War meets Tower of Power meets Fela. One of those suckers that starts slow, and just about when you're thinking "I don't know about this one", it kicks it up a notch, and then another, and another. By the end of it, you're thinking, "I gotta hear that again!"
The Outfit were from Barbados, and may or may not have done time in Canada. The label, Wirl, may or may not be an imprint of Island Records. The Outfit may never have had a single photo taken of them. But they released a solid jam and a half. That is the sum total of what I learned from several web searches. (Thinks: Well, that gets me off the hook early.)
