Change The World / Try, Try
Change The World / Try, Try was released in 1977 by Solat, a Dutch-based funk group made up of Surinamese and Dutch Antillian musicians. It is hard to think of many 7" singles where both sides are as heavy as this one!
Formed after ex-band members of Reality / Tony And Reality; Eddy Veldman, Franky Douglas, Ivor Mitchell and Glenn Gaddum teamed up with singer Billy Jones, Solat went on to release two singles for Poker records.
With its crossover nature, it pleases disco, funk and modern-soul collectors and DJs alike, plus due to only been released in the Netherlands, the record has now become an extremely sought-after item with a high price tag to match.
Both amazing cuts are aimed straight for the dance-floor, but retain conscious and positive messages that are as relevant now as they were back then. Change The World is an anthemic feel-good disco funk gem, whilst Try, Try is reminiscent of a Mizell Brothers golden-era production.
