A pair of funky soul sets from the early 80s by Junie – Bread Alone and 5 back-to-back in one set! Bread Alone is a nice batch of slicked up funk – not as crazy has his stoned-out albums on Westbound, but just as great overall! There's plenty of 80s bass pedal whomping in the mix, but production's nice and smooth, with some good doses of soul that keep the record from being a silly throwaway funk effort. Junie's actually written some pretty tight grooves for this one – and the tracks have more catchy lines and honest lyrics than we can remember from earlier albums. Tracks include "Nagual's Theme", "Funky Parts", "Seaman First Class", "Bread Alone", "Why", "Love Has Taken Me Over (Be My Baby)" and "Apple Song". Junie moves the groove a bit more into cosmic boogie and even a little bit of early rap styled funk on 5 – with synthy grooves, rubbery bass lines, and some surprisingly tender twists and turns, too! A stylistically varied, but pretty solid little set from Junie! With the tracks "Rappin About Rappin", "Jarr The Ground", "Last One To Know", and "5".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A great solo effort from Mose Davis – best known for his earlier work in The Counts, but still sounding pretty darn hip here with a new combo of his own! The feel here is kind of an extension of the later Counts work on Aware Records – funky at the core, but with some smoother touches ... CD

Stormy Monday
Capitol, 1962. Used
One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album. Most of the numbers are bluesy ones, but as usual, Lou manages to give them his own hip twist ... CD
