7-inch, Vinyl record

4.90 3

A plenty cool split single – with great work on both sides! CSC Funk Band sound better than ever on "Catcher's Mitt" – a tune that has a nice sense of color in its main funky riff – almost a soundtracky level of funky expression! "Ogun" is on the flipside – a mighty nice number from the Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra – rompingly tight, and with some great percussion and organ! (On clear vinyl – hand numbered, limited edition of 1000. Includes digital download.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
Swinging horns and soaring vocals – a great little groover from the band of Saunders King – and one that mixes up equal parts jazz and R&B! There's some sweet scatting on the vocals at times – almost in a Dizzy Gillespie mode – and "Lazy Woman Blues" has more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
