Heavy funk, all the way through – a brilliant batch of cuts from The Original Black Sheep Of The Family – and one of the only true testaments we've ever seen to their obscure funky work! The set begins with the massive "In The Forest" – a wicked, wangly groove that features righteous vocals on part one – then really takes off instrumentally on part two – with more than enough energy to warrant spanning both sides of the single! "Heaven" is a wonderful cut – warmly bubbling with a bit of modern soul energy, but also coming across with a more deeply spiritual undercurrent too – a bit like the best balance you'd find on some of the Soul Cal reissues, but also a totally unique cut on its own! "Do You Wanna" is a cut with a cool complicated bassline at the start, almost fitfully making its way into some funkier rhythms – all handled by the group with the best late 70s ensemble funk modes! (A beautiful package – gatefold full color 7" sleeve, with notes and photos!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Heavy funk from Rickey Calloway – once a lost 70s artist, but now at the top of our stack, thanks to the efforts of Kenny Dope! "Get It Right" is a totally frenetic little track – one with riffing guitar in the rhythms, played at a level that matches the best grooves of the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funk Night, 2012. New Copy
A rare instrumental take on a cut that Rickey Calloway cut with The Dap Kings a few years back – one that doesn't feature any vocals at all from Rickey – but has even more room for The Dap Kings to open up and groove! We're not sure why Rickey's name is on the label, but that oddness ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funk Night, 2012. New Copy
