Dennis Coffey —
Hair & Thangs ... LP Maverick, Early 70s. Used (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner! You'll probably never find this rare first Dennis Coffey album in the original, so you owe it to yourself to snatch up this funky funky reissue of stripped down guitar breakbeat jams! The record has Coffey playing his trademark fuzzy guitar, along with his early group that included the legendary Lyman Woodard on organ and Andrew Davis on drums. As the title implies, some tracks are versions of cuts from Hair – with great GaltMacDermot grooves like "Let The Sunshine In", "Sodomy", and "Aquarius" – plus other excellent covers and originals, like "Hair & Grits", "Hey Jude", "Do Your Thang", "Iceberg's Thang", "It's Your Thang", and "Electric Thang". Clearly, it's a very thang-heavy LP, with all the funkiness that might imply! There's some excellent drum breaks, and more than a boatload full of fuzzy guitar riffs to groove groove groove you away!

One of the best versions of the Hair soundtrack you'll find on moog! Robert Byrne's cut some fine albums in his time, but on this little gem, he really grooves it hard with GaltMacDermot's funky score – using all the cool changes in the songs to riff out some great work on the moog. There's a great little combo backing him up, and they've got some tight rhythm that works well in juxtaposition to Byrne's moogy musings. Titles include "Hair", "Three-Five-Zero-Zero", "Easy To Be Hard", "Walking In Space", "Be In", "Frank Mills", and "Donna". LP, Vinyl record album
