An overlooked gem from Book! "Over Easy" has an unusual MGs approach – in that it's got piano in the lead – riffing over some slow funky congas, while organ sneaks in and out the back door. All this makes for a super-dope groove that's got a sound that's almost 70s blacksploitation soundtrack! Heck, even the group's version of "Hang Em High" is pretty great – very hip with an organ flourish, giving the tune an almost mod-like feel!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Melting Pot/Kinda Easy Like
Stax, Late 60s. Very Good+
Excellent late Stax work from Booker T & The MGs! "Melting Pot" is a stunner – slyly jazzy, with a great groove that's miles ahead of "Green Onions", and which has been revived often over the years in hip hop samples! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Stax, 1975. Near Mint-
Late funkiness from Rufus – a mixture of Memphis groove and boogie, with many of the same elements of his famous funky tunes – including some nice drums that snap on the intro, and a bass part that flips around a lot at the beginning! More "bump" than straight funk, but still ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

People, 1973. Very Good
2 killers by the JBs! "Doing It To Death" is one of their best tracks from the early days – with a funky riffing sound you'll know immediately. "Everybody Got Soul" is an excellent party track with a great Maceo solo – lots of grooves, and the band is tight tight ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bell, Early 70s. Very Good
An excellent rare one! The cut's got a nice hard choppy groove, with a sort of electric feel to it, and the kind of funk sound that reminds us of groups like Manzel. Mr. Penguin talks over the top, and the band vamps underneath with lots of fuzzy guitar and organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funky Bull (parts 1 & 2)
Original Sound, 1969. Very Good-
A monster from Dyke! The cut's a bit tripper than some of his other work – more in the late Charles Wright vein, with descending off-kilter riffs and some monster-hard drums that really make the cut kick nicely, especially on part 2! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gold Plate, 1975. Very Good
Two mellower cuts from this group that's best known for their funkier work! "Blind Over You" is a sweet love song with a really great approach – sad and drifting, in an east coast mode, with a catchy lyric that steps along nicely. "Your Self-Conscious Mind" has a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
