Raw Soul Express front

A monster of a rare funk album – recorded by a tight little combo who should have been huge!

Raw Soul Express have a touch of jazz in their playing – coming off here with a sound that reminds us of Wood Brass & Steel, and a rare few other funk acts of the time who knew how to do more than just hit a heavy drum and pluck a noisy bass – really going beyond the usual to come up with a groove that’s wonderfully crafted throughout – and way way more than just the sum of its parts!

Not that the band is slick or too polished, though – because they definitely earn the “raw” in their name with some sharp edges on the instrumentation – a sharp sense of power that really helps the whole thing cook.
