Eric Quincy Tate - “Hooker House” (Cotillion) - Um, it’s called Hooker House, you do the math. 2nd song I’ve posted from this LP, here’s the 1st:
The New Breed - “P.M. or Later” (Jamie) - Some mod funk with a phat break.
Jimmy Gray Hall - “Be That Way” (Epic) - So I usually post rare funk and soul records but today I’m posting a cheap pop record that just puts a smile on my face. Of course it is kinda funky, hope you like it.
Boo and the Tru-Tones - “The World Is A Ghetto” (TREX) - Nice cover of the War classic. 2nd song I’ve posted from this LP, here is the 1st:
Magnum - “Evolution” (Phoenix-Jamie) - One of several great tracks from this classic funk album.
Milt Matthews Inc. - “I’m Gonna’ Get ‘Cha” (Commonwealth United) - Another track from this killer LP. Here was the first one I posted:
The Youngbloods - “The Dolphin” (Warner Bros) - Long jazzy funky rock jam.
Carl Hall - “The Dam Busted” (Loma) - I felt like the dam busted after our Thanksgiving feast…
Freddy Cole - “Brother Where Are You” (First Shot) - Nat King Cole’s brother gettin’ funky! I find the title of this LP really depressing.
9th Creation - “Skin It Back” (Clarama) - There’s a party goin’ on!
Sunrise Ltd - “Our Love Will Grow” (Pizzazz) - Mellow, almost verging on corny…but those drums!
Charles Johnson & The Dynamic Gaylarks - ”God Got His Eyes On You” (Richburg) - A slow building, downtempo gospel funk burner for a Sunday morning.
Dan Penn - “If Love Was Money” (Happy Tiger) - I dunno, pop soul? Nice break at 2:55.
Enrique Lynch Y Su Conjunto - “Safari Salvaje” (Sono Radio) - Afro-latin rhythms from the same guy who did this one:
Bergendy - “Dizzy” (Pepita) OK, so this is admittedly corny, but who could resist a Hungarian cover of the Tommy Roe breakbeat track used in so many classic rap songs? Not me.
