Hot Thang

LP (Item 7981) Sussex, 1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

A heck of a great little guitar funk album – one of two rare sides cut by the amazing Eddie Senay! The record's all-instrumental – and Eddie's fuzzed-out guitar takes center stage over tripped-out arrangements that recall the best psychedelic funk of the early 70s – bubbling along with just enough drums, bass, and keyboards to make for a chunky bottom groove – while Senay wails over the top on guitar! The record reminds us of similar guitar funk albums from the time – including the work of Dennis Coffey, Eddie Fisher, or Donald Austin – but the groove's even more laidback and trippy, with a few nice breakway moments from the rhythm section. Tracks include "Jubo", "Hot Thang", "Message of Love", and great covers of "Ain't No Sunshine" and Donny Hathaway's "Zambezi".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sussex, 1972. Very Good+
Classic funky groovers from Dennis Coffey – with his hard guitar sound gettin' all fuzzy over some loud drums and funky Sussex production!

Unfinished Business
Fantasy, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
There's nothing unfinished about this business – as The Blackbyrds are at the top of their game here – working in a sweet blend of jazz, funk, and soul – all produced to perfection by their mentor Donald Byrd! The groove is quite similar to some of Byrd's best from the time ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blues
Trip, 1966. Sealed
Trip issue of material from Randy Weston's under-issued years of the mid 60s – just 3 long tracks that are all totally great!
