Eros Plus Melody Vol. 31 (SC 140)

Not sure if I'm resurrecting EPM, so this could be a one-off; or it may be the first in an indefinite but very sporadic extension of more volumes... We shall see...

Anyway, I found a bunch of really great non-EPM tracks had shuffled their way into my rotation, so figured it would be a pity if not an outright sin to share them!

Those more familiar with EPM will recognize the opening track, "Something Happens", by Jack Arel. It actually appears on EPM 17. I'd always regretted that I didn't start a volume with that track because it's a crushing number. I gave myself a mulligan and the song receives the special designation as being the only one to appear twice in the Eros Plus Melody series.

EPM 31 starts out pretty mellow until a familiar track (or at least a riff that will be familiar to anyone alive today) comes in and busts the door down. It's pretty much funk, groove and beats from there on out (and a lot of funky flutes, athough that was not my intention--the subconscious was definitely at work, though).

One small teeny tiny detail that is likely to make many folks a twinge, a wee bit unhappy: I've only uploaded the single track mix. If there is significant interest shown in having the individual tracks, leave me a comment. If a nice number of requests come in, I'll hook you up.
