Though he’s been in the biz for more years than he can care to remember, OMAR hasn’t yet had a proper career spanning compilation retrospective. His current label, Freestyle are about to correct that omission with ‘Omar – The Anthology’ coming very, very soon.

Freestyle are heralding the album with proper tasty double A sided single. One of the tunes is brand new and on ‘Pass It On’ Mr Lye-Fook teams up with the lovely Terri Walker to craft a sweet, soothing mid-tempo groove riddled with nifty brass work. The two are clearly on the same musical wavelength!

Making the release even more memorable is the “other side” – a version of William DeVaughn’s ‘Be Thankful’ that sees the Big O duet with someone called Erykah Badu. We need say no more!
