DC International, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Sublime harmony soul – and one of THE east coast classics of the early 70s!

Midnight Movers, UnltdFollow The Wind ... LP
Buddah, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of THE psychedelic funk masterpieces of the early 70s – a guitar-heavy set with a very fuzzed up feel – one that's halfway between the work of Fugi and some of the best early sides on Westbound Records!
