Strut present an exclusive for Record Store Day, an EP of previously unreleased tracks and versions by the Bahamas most celebrated funk collective, The Beginning Of The End. Best known for the rare groove classic Funky Nassau, the band originally released Fishman, a simmering folk-soul tribute to the islands fishermen, as a B-side to the Doin The Funky Do 45 in 1972. This new full length version from the original tapes sees the band stretch out, transforming the track into an epic 11-minute jam a true lost classic. The flip features the instrumental funk workout Goin Back To Funky Nassau, another storming previously unreleased dancefloor track from the tail end of their short career in 72.
