LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 11

Tight funky group soul from Fayetteville, NC's Mellow Madness – formed by youth educators Frank McNeil & Malachi Sharpe in the late 70s or early 80s – amazing stuff culled from unreleased master tapes and mixed by Kenny Dope! We must say right off that while there's a few fairly measured soul jams here, for the most part, it's way too energetic and funky to be described as "mellow". We ain't gonna complain about that, and we doubt you'll want to either! It's got some heavy hitting, yet still pretty easygoing post disco funk with hard drums – and lots of good-natured dancefloor soul –recorded apparantly in the early 80s, but with more of a mid 70s feel. Amazing stuff – the couple of singles we'd heard previously whetted the appetite for a more comprehensive compilation of material and Kay Dee has delivered really a great one here! The Includes "Save The Youth", "Mellow Madness", "Memories Of You", "Gone", "Struggles Of Life", "Gone (Kenny Dope Vibes Mix)", "Love On My Mind" and "Mellow Madness (Instrumental)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
