The best of the Brooklyn based funk band formed by Randy Mueller in 1968 as Dynamic Soul. It wasn't until 1975 when the group recorded their first album changed their name to Brass Construction. That album helped change the sound of dance music and began their ascent on both the pop and R&B charts in a career that extended well into the next decade. With hits like "Movin'", "Changin'", "Wake Up" and "Ha Cha Cha (Funktion)", the band certainly made their mark on the world of popular music.
Issued in 2006, Something for the Weekend is a unique Brass Construction compilation. Rather than cram as many single edits of A-sides as possible, it selects ten of the band's songs in either full album or extended 12" form. Its scope covers the earliest single, 1976's number one R&B hit "Movin'," through the last one to chart, 1985's "Give and Take." There's not enough room for each significant Brass Construction recording, but it's a satisfying alternative for those who are typically frustrated by edit-heavy anthologies. This was released by Stateside, a catalog subsidiary of Capitol in the U.K.
