Benson Burner

LP (Item 38315) Columbia, Late 60s/1976 — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

A 2LP set that features some great early groovers from George Benson – cut for Columbia back in the late 60s, when George was fresh out of Jack McDuff's classic combo, and grooving on his own with the help of organist Lonnie Smith. These tracks have gotten pretty hard to find on vinyl over the years, which makes the set even more essential than it was a decade ago, when you could still find it easily in the cutout bins. Most numbers have a great raw organ/guitar groove – much different and a lot more soulful than most of the other jazz on Columbia at the time. Tracks include "Benson's Rider", "Clabber Biscuits", "Chicken Giblets", "Mama Wailer", "Hammond's Bossa Nova", "Peg Leg Jack", "Jaguar", "Keep Talkin", and "Slow Scene". (Cover has ring & edge wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Paul Winley, Early 70s/1978. Near Mint-
Wild and mysterious stuff! This album is sort of a repackaged version of the legendary Harlem Underground album – a great lost funk album from the mid-70s that listed George Benson as a player in the group, but one that Benson claims that he never played on!

Give Me The Night
Qwest/Warner, 1980. Very Good+
Yipes! This one made everyone a bucket of money – especially Quincy Jones, whose new Qwest imprint the record was one of the first to grace. George has come a long way from his roots with Jack McDuff here – but in a way that kind of has us impressed, as he's grooving away slickly on ... LP, Vinyl record album
