A nearly decade-long study of the Story Of Vernon Garrett – nicely covering the breadth of styles he could pull off, while drawing heavily from the best of it – from chugging raw soul, to grittier funk to some mellower numbers! There's a rawness at the core of Vernon's sound that serves him very well, whether it's the funkier numbers – of which this retrospective hones in on for the most part – to songs with a horn-heavy southern style despite the west coast recordings, to some solid bluesy soul rave ups. A strong testament to this greatly underappreciated talent! Includes "Cave Man", "Just Ain't My Day", "Escape", "You Blew My Mind", "We The People Of The Ghetto", "I Learned My Lesson", "Don't Do What I Do", "Keep On Forgiving You", "Satisfying Woman, Satisfying Man", "Something Went Wrong" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The second album by this legendary 70s funk combo – best known as Herbie Hancock's backing band, but sounding great here on their own. The album's much more of a solid soul effort than the first one – which was great, but felt more like Herbie Had stepped out of the studio for a minute ... LP, Vinyl record album

Popcorn
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A tremendous turning point in the career of James Brown – and an album that points the way strongly to the even deeper funk of the 70s! The album's a hard-wailing batch of instrumental tracks played by the legendary James Brown Band of the late 60s – the pre-JBs ensemble that's gone ... LP, Vinyl record album
