It is hard to think of many 7" singles where both sides are as
heavy as this one!
Change The World / Try, Try was released in 1977 by Solat, a
Dutch-based funk group made up of Surinamese and Dutch-Antillian
musicians. 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 feelgood
disco funk gem, whilst 'Try, Try ' is reminiscent of a
Mizell Brothers golden-era production.
