A blistering collection of funk, hard-charging r&b and psychedelic soul from the Phoenix scene – amazing singles issued mostly in the late 60s and early 70s and spearheaded by producer Mike Lenaburg – and a great portrait of a too-long neglected funky southwest! Mighty Mike Lenaburg produced records for Phoenix area acts on a half dozen label imprints such as Homogenized Soul, Out Of Sight, Mighty and Darlene. The sound throughout this collection has for the most part a heavy bottom end of funky drums, chiming-and-chugging guitar and vocals that range from gritty soul howling to more of a harmony approach. There's some killer funky flute and soulful psych from Michael Liggins, tight funky soul from Lon Rogers, positively pummeling numbers from Ronnie Whitehead and much more. The Numero Group continues to raise the stakes with their amazing Eccentric Soul series – telling a culturally significant story, and just as importantly, assembling flat out perfect listening experiences! 17 tracks in all: "Too Good To Be True" and "My Girl Is A Soul Girl" by Lon Rogers & The Soul Blenders, "Standing On The Corner", by Michael Liggins, "Loaded To The Gills" and "Loaded Back" by Michael Liggins & The Super Souls, "I've Got To Have You" by Sheila Black, "Blending Soul" by Soul Blenders, "People, Open Your Eyes And See" by We The People, "Cold Feet" and "Begging You" by Ronnie Whitehead, "Funky Nightclub" by Soulsations, "The Quarrel" by Newly Weds and more!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
