5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Funk Sounds Best When its Dirty!! May 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD exceeded all my expectations. It was just amazing to find such incredibley funky music that is almost completely unknown outside the realm of record collectors.
The Highlights include "Give Everybody Some" which is just a seven minute excuse to let everyone solo for a minute or two. Classic. "Mystery Girl" and "Joint Session" both have that laid back feeling that I find very difficult for most funk groups to pull off without sounding boring.
The high point for me is the Demo versio of "Hey, Brother Man." Its probably the cleanest sounding song on the CD. That doesn't make it better automatically, but I just love the sound of George Salas' guitar on this version as opposed the final version.
Big props to DJ Shadow for tracking down these rare treasures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Response to The Most Blatantly Ridiculous Review Ever February 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have shopped amazon many times. I have listened to alot of music. I have listened to music of all genres for the better part of 30 years. I have never took time out of my life to comment or review an item; ever. Until now. What prompted me to write this has to be the most blatantly ridiculous review in the history of mankind. Ever. Never has a person's opinion such contradicted reality as the person who wrote the 1 star review calling this masterpiece garbage. It's like saying that Hitler was kind and peace loving or that gravity is an illusion or that the moon is made of cheese. Come on. Are you kidding me? What rock did you climb out from under? I guarantee you if you like funk and soul you will love this! And if you like funk and soul then you already know about this band. If you're not sure what funk or soul music is then you would still love this music. If you're not sure what music is or what constitutes good music then you would probably write a review such as the one mentioned above and you most likely live a lonely pathetic life or you are 45 years old and you still live with you parents reading comics and wondering what the words "feel", "love", "happiness", "worth", "beauty", and "life" mean. If you really think this music is garbage then yes you should go ahead and end your life now. It's ok. You were thinking about it anyways. Please it's better for all of us and for your family. You were a mistake. Seriously the only logical explanation for your comment is that you are/were a mediocre at best session musician auditioning in the 70's for Mickey & the Soul Generation and you got rejected. And all these years later you are still bitter. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars funkin May 31, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Great instrumental funk collection. Not for everybody, but certainly for me. Funky drums, funky organ, funky wah-guitar, funky horns, funky bass... this is great music.
If you like Poets of Rhythm, then this album is a shoe-in. You can hear two tracks at quannum's website.

5.0 out of 5 stars A whole album worth of one band's lost grooves! May 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Back in the day bands, often local, would hit the studio, record... and if the single moved, might record another, then another, then eventually if demand still had it would rush out a whole album worth of stuff (whether or not they actually had an album worth of material worth recording.) - - and then more often than not fade into obscurity... - - As was the case with this retrospectively down home gritty funky band, the band recorded... and recorded, then recorded... but none of their stuff caught on... At the time it must have been heartbreaking from them... but for us, a bit fortunate, as this compilation features music that represented their best efforts over an 8 year period... The efforts were great, unfortunately, none of them caught on.. In the end, they probably came across as another version of Archie Bell, Dyke or JB influenced band... and maybe it was true... but beyond that, hit potential or not, they were a tight and funky instrumental ensemble, and this album delivers on its promise of rare early '70s lost funk...

To describe the sound... unlike a lot of similar bands this band goes a long way with just bass, guitar, organ,drums ... There is not a front vocalist or JB type horn section... still, the grooves are big, fat and full and varied... and you can just imagine the people dancing to this band (bell bottoms, afros and all) as they played a gig in some jam packed "all the locals go to club"...

So here we have it, a retrospect from a band that definitely kicked out the funk, and probably would have been lost forever if it wasn't for this great label, and the enthusiasm of die hard funk collectors.
