Super Woman

A 2 track funk single (9m 25s) — released January 12th 2015 on AOE

After our first year in business Athens of the north is happy to open the door on our new Sub label for everything wiith a funky edge, AOE (Owl of Athens) .

For our first outing we have the two strongest tracks from Beginning of the End's rare Self-Titled L.P. "Superwoman" a next level funk anthem of the highest order. Flipped with the almost afrobeat style guitar of "That's what I get" Both solid classic since back in the day yet never issued before on single, what better way to start a new label.

Both songs were written by Alessandro "Teddy" Randazzo a New York City born pop songwriter who composed hit songs such as "Goin' Out of My Head", "It's Gonna Take a Miracle", "Pretty Blue Eyes", and "Hurt So Bad" in the 1960s, Teddy wrote many hit records for Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Manhattans, The Stylistics, Linda Ronstadt. He also wrote "Super Woman" for the The Dells. After signing with Don Taylor Raphael and the Beginning of the End were introduced to Teddy Randazzo and Vicky Pike, they loved five of the duos songs "Jamaica", "Falling Apart at the Seams", "Superwoman", "That's what I Get" and "Blues Train" which they took recorded their second album in Jamaica and New York.

Many of Randazzo's tunes became pop classics, recorded by a gamut of industry giants from Ella Fitzgerald to Frank Sinatra. These two slices of Funky soul may not have fared so well but not for lack of quality or delivery, lets change that.
