LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

A collection of ultra rare material from the mighty Black Merda and affilliates – including early work credited to The Soul Agents (a pre-cursor to Merda) and solo credits for lead singer VC L. Veasey! Psych Funk is a very apt description to pretty much all of the music in the set – with that sinister guitar groove, funky bass and rollicking drums. The vocals range from the soul funk school – especially the couple of tracks sung by Linnie Walker (the sister of Black Merda members Charles and Anthony Hawkins) – to more psychedelia-learned phrasings – not unlike early Parliament! Tracks include an alternate versions of the Black Merda tunes "Cynthy-Ruth" and "Reality", "People Let Me Know" and "Darn Well" featuring vocals by Linnie Walker, the Soul Agents excellent funk version of "Foxy Lady", and the VC Veasey tracks "Do Nothing Wrong" and "Original Man".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
