A rare funky soul classic!
This one was originally issued on Brunswick in 1974, and it’s darn impossible to find in the original, probably because Brunswick was having a great deal of financial trouble at the time. Whatever the case, the record’s a great one – and it’s got a tight ensemble funky sound, mixed with some great soulful vocals, and a strong indie soul groove. The band originally came from North Carolina, and they’ve got a style that’s similar to some of the other south coast funk groups that were operating in the 70s in cities like Washington, Richmond, and other points south.
Most tracks have deep soulful vocals, but there’s some very nice instrumentals too, and the band’s got a pretty tight approach to playing.
