Hey You, You're Losing Your Vitamin C

I've enjoyed watching The Get Down, Netflix's series based around the birth of hip hop in The Bronx in 1977. Whenever one of the characters (Dizzee) appeared so did this song, with those crazy Jaki Leibezeit rhythms and Damo Suzuki's vocal refrain. It's off Ege Bamyasi, released in 1972, the album that enabled them to move into a bigger and better studio. At only three minutes thirty three seconds long it doesn't outstay its welcome and leaves me wanting more.

Vitamin C
