Funky madness from the early version of the Ohio Players! The album features work by the group that was most likely recorded before their move to Mercury, collected here in an album that's right up there with their trippiest work for Westbound. Highlights include the heavy groovers "Food Stamps Y'all", "Pack It Up", and "Players Ballin'" – and the album features the traditional gatefold cover of that freaky nude woman! (Cover has a cut corner and some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mercury, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Great work from the Ohio Players – and proof that moving to a big label could be a good thing for a funky group!

Sex Machine Today
Polydor, 1975. Very Good
A great little album by The Godfather – one that takes the core James Brown sound of the "Sex Machine" generation, and serves it up with a tighter mid 70s twist! Fred Wesley is still very firmly at the helm of the band – and there's a power here that's equal to the later JBs ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bigger And Deffer
Def Jam, 1987. Very Good
Maybe you won't rate this one as timeless as Radio, but it still has an energy missing so much of the hip hop that would follow it. Besides, the raw drum machine and cuts approach to production holds up so many years later, and James' rhymes, brags and delivery represent a bygone era of hip hop ... LP, Vinyl record album
