LP (Item 20207) Funky Delicacies/Tuff City, 1971 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

Heavy duty fuzzy soul, from the group that once backed Fugi, who recorded the massive "Mary, Don't Take Me On No Bad Trip".) The record's got a distinct batch of influences that run from Funkadelic, to Hendrix, to Chicago electric blues – but since the recording (from 1970) was contemporaneous with most of those influences, we should give the group more credit than just listing others with a similar sound. Includes the great stoned track "Cynthy-Ruth", plus "Prophet", "Reality", "I Don't Want To Die", and "Over & Over".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
