Instant Funk

LP (Item 14671) Salsoul, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

Maybe the third great Philly studio group of the 70s – after MFSB and Salsoul Orchestra – a killer combo who provided backing grooves to plenty of great club tracks over the years – and who step out strongly here on their own debut album! Bunny Sigler helps give the album a sharp focus – with his own production and songwriting in play – in modes that are very much like his own best club tracks of the time – but the group is more than great enough on their own – with a funky edge that definitely lives up to their name, and a groove that's even sharper than the two aforementioned contemporary combos. Lead vocals are by James Carmichael, who's totally great – and titles include "Don't You Wanna Party", "Never Let It Go Away", "I Got My Mind Made Up", "Dark Vader", "Wide World Of Sports", and "You Say You Want Me To Stay".

ABC, 1973. Very Good
Weird mix of Philly soul production with vocals that have more of a southern soul kind of feel to them. Charles' voice is nice and rich, and the tracks are arranged by Vince Montana & Norman Harris. Includes some nice ballads, and a few uptempo tracks, including a Philly version of Steely Dan' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chess, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Hard to get better than this for 50s vocal group material – and despite all the other groups on the east coast scene at the time, The Moonglows are still tops with us! The group have this really great way of never sounding too hokey or showy – but really manage to make magic with their ... LP, Vinyl record album
