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.

Funk Night, 2014. New Copy
A mighty Hammond instrumental from the Mighty 388's – a tune that burns and soars right from the start, and has these massive drums that break hard all the way through – and really keep the energy going! "Man Up" is mighty funky too – even more punctuated, with more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Stretch (parts 1 & 2)
Soul Track/Soul Fire, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Stretch! What a funky number – begins with handclaps, a shout, and rolls into a tightly breaking drum dancing with bass. Then horns come in, fuzzed-out guitar sneaks up, and a wailing keyboard line spooks the tune nicely. Part 2 really gets crazy – band chanting, horns blasting some ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
