One of the coolest club combos of the 70s – the mighty Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band – a group with a sound that's a lot tighter than their name! The group's probably best known for giving exposure to August Darnell in his pre-Kid Creole
years – but they've also got a sound that's really all their own, and which draws strongly from all members of the group – making them way more than just another Darnell side project. Old and new styles come together wonderfully in the band's music – but the approach isn't just easy retro disco, and instead is often a warmer take on mainstream
70s disco modes – one that dips into the past to pull back the right elements to bring a bit more life to the sound. Arrangements are mostly by Stony Browder Jr, who co-wrote most of the tunes – and titles include "The Gigolo & I", "You Got Something/
Betcha The Love Bug Bitcha", "Transistor Madness/
Future DJ", "Cherchez La Femme/
Se Si Bon", "Mister Love", "Sunshower", "Nocturnal Interludes", "Soraya/
March Of The Nignies", "Auf Wiedersehen/
Darrio", "I'll Play The Fool", and "Hard Times".
