In The Purest Form

LP (Item 51100) Cotillion, 1979 — Condition: Used

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 11

The Cotillion era of smooth bass-heavy funk is firmly in place with the release of this one – an ensemble funk outing with perhaps a few too many members in the ensemble! As is usually the case with such a record, the cuts that work best are the mellow numbers – like "Our Thought (Purity)", "With Pleasure", and "Next Year", all of which groove along at a slow pace with a nice mellow soul feel. Other tracks include "Love You", "Firecracker", and "Can't You See I'm Fired Up". The only exception is the great cut "Strollin" – which is a jazzy instrumental with trumpet and vibes, really working together in a tightly jamming groove! (Cover has a tracklist sticker, a promo stamp, and some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

King, 1970. Very Good-
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album
