Product Description

During the late 60s and early 70s, and decades before Nirvana, Microsoft and Starbucks put Seattle on the map, Seattle's African American neighborhood known as the Central District was buzzing. The soul sounds of groups like Black On White Affair, Cookin' Bag, and Cold Bold & Together filled local airwaves and packed clubs seven nights a week. As many of the bands began breaking out nationally via major record deals, television appearances, and gigs with the likes of Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder, the public demanded Disco and the scene slipped into obscurity. Flash forward 30 years later, local crate digger DJ Mr. Supreme approached local label Light In The Attic with the idea of releasing an album compilation of these obscure Funk releases, and the result was entitled Wheedle's Groove. At the release party, a line of nostalgic 60 year old fans and funk-hungry 20-somethings wrapped around the block as the musicians inside (currently working as graphic designers, janitors, and truck drivers), reflected on music dreams derailed, and prepared to perform together for the first time in 30 years. Their performance sizzles!

Narrated by Seattle's own Sir Mix-A-Lot and featuring interviews with local soul musicians of the era, as well as commentary from Seattle native and legendary producer Quincy Jones, jazz pop star Kenny G (himself a veteran of the 1970's regional scene), and fresh perspectives from members of Soundgarden, Death Cab For Cutie, and Mudhoney, Wheedle's Groove proves that The Emerald City's got soul!

Special Features: deleted scenes, concert footage, trailer, What's a Wheedle featurette, and more.
