Product Notes

Possibly the best-known piece of music from the Strata label's diverse and innovative catalogue, the unique, low-fi, moody, understated aesthetic of 'Saturday Night Special' has captured the hearts of music fans and DJs worldwide. "When I first heard the Lyman Woodard Organization 'Saturday Night Special'," says DJ Amir, "I thought it was a song from a Blaxploitation soundtrack. Once I realized that Lyman was from Detroit, I immediately thought that if there was ever a 'theme song' for Detroit that 'Saturday Night Special' would be it. There is such a cinematic vibe to the song full of grit, rawness, and determination that just soaks into your veins. This album/song will always be in my bag of records to survive the apocalypse with!'" When DJ Amir and Jazzanova began work on the 'Reimagined' project, breathing new life into the Strata Records archive, this jazz-funk classic was right at the top of the list of 'musts' for the band to re-interpret. "I had no idea what direction they were going to go, musically" says Amir. "The original song had been sampled more than a few times, but in my opinion, it was never done tastefully. However, from the first practice session, I knew that they were spot on with the right direction! Their version is the perfect blend of Detroit and Berlin!"
