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 Lousiville, Kentucky.

“People have always loved that track (Ungodly War), people would always want to talk to me about it and you know it’s more relevant now than ever before…it’s stood the test of time” Lamont Butler

For this release Miles Away wanted to try something a little different and so, for the first time on Miles Away, they 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’s 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 that’s good 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 dancefloor.

On the flip is a deep cut Get Up And Praise The Lord, which features on the album and was a track many a DJ reached for from the album.

Includes digital copy of Ungodly War (Al Kent’s Heavenly Edit) / Get Up And Praise The Lord in WAV format.

A – Ungodly War (Al Kent’s Heavenly Edit) (3:44)
B – Get Up And Praise The Lord (4:25)

Notes: Brand new never played. Vinyl graded as VG+ because both sides have light surface marks that will not affect play. The marks are only visible under strong light. A side only has a few very light marks. B side has a few very light marks and there is an approx 0.5cm long mark at the start. The record came like this from the distributor. The marks will have been caused by the hard card sleeve because they did not include a paper inner sleeve. Cheap shipping on 7″s. Photo
