The latest installment of Light In The Attic’s exclusive vinyl features Toronto’s BadBadNotGood with Jonah Yano on vocals covering Key To Love (Is Understanding), originally recorded in 1982 by Milwaukee’s funk / soul pioneers Majestics. The newly recorded cover and the original version are available on Majestic Pink 7” vinyl.
“As lovers of old soul, funk and rare recordings, ‘Key to Love’ has always been a song that has had an impact on our heart and ears,” BadBadNotGood said. “We hope our version relays how special this song is and gives it some new listeners and a second life [...] It’s an incredibly beautiful song that deserves to be heard, and we hope to play a small part in that.”
The original Majestics single is highly sought after by diggers and DJs worldwide not only for Key To Love (Is Understanding) but also for Class A, which is considered the first-ever rap recording to come out of Milwaukee.
