Some of the best material we've ever heard from Andre Williams' heady 60s funk days – including some tracks that were initially released as singles on the tiny Duo label in Chicago, plus a bunch more that have never been reissued at all! In the setting for the sides, Andre's working at his hardest and heaviest – really keeping things raw and hard throughout, even on the numbers that feature vocals. There's a number of really great instrumentals on the album – tunes that have the rough, ready, and nicely messed up approach of some of Andre's best Chess work of the time – and which are a seminal bridge between the soul instrumental style of the 60s, and the heavier funk of the 70s! Titles include "Pass The Biscuits 67", "Andre's Jam", "Andre's Fender Rhodes Groove", "Thunder Thighs", "Red Beans (aka Bo Hog Stomp)", "Andre's Thang", and "Daniel Boone" by Andre Williams – plus Williams numbers with other artists that include "Can You Deal With That" by Jo Ann Garrett, "If I Didn't Love You" by The Profiles, "Baby Baby Oh Baby" by Jimmy Ed Trio, and "I'm The Rock" by The Velvet Hammer. 16 tracks in all – 4 more than the vinyl version.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Miucha & Antonio Carlos Jobim
RCA/Sony (UK), 1977. New Copy
A pretty darn sweet vocal session from the duo of Miucha and Antonio Carlos Jobim – recorded with lots of bossa overtones, very much the same spirit as the legendary Elis & Tom album of the mid 70s! Chico Buarque participates in the session, and Jobim even lends his vocal talents to a ... CD
