Polydor, 1972. Very Good- ... $19.99
Wild weird stuff from Edwin Birdsong – an artist who's best known for his work with Roy Ayers during the 70s.

Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves!
