AllMusic Review by

The 12" E.V.A./Heaven & Hell single features two heavily sampled experimental funk tracks from the '70s. Jean-Jacques Perrey's "E.V.A." is a huge slab of moog-driven electronic funk originally found on 1970's release on Vanguard, Moog Indigo. It has been sampled many times and remixed memorably by Fatboy Slim, but the original remains the best version. "Heaven & Hell" by the 20th Century Steel Band is another mid-'70s weird funk jam featuring sparse percussion and political lyrics. The song served as DJ Red Alert's theme song for a while and is quite a find for weird funk afficiandos. Both sides of this 12" fit that bill.
