Fantastic funk from a legendary label – even if it was just sort of an offshoot imprint at the time! Pride issued a handful of albums back in the early 70s, most in partnership with MGM – but nearly every one of the company's records is a well-remembered gem with funk collectors all these many years later – as Pride had a great way of keeping the grooves sharp, even when the tunes had sweeter vocals over the top! This 20 track set is a fantastic selection of tunes from the short years of Pride – both vocal and instrumental numbers, with titles that include "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Jimmy Smith, "Kiburi (part 1)" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Misdemeanor" by Foster Sylvers, "Melinda Latino" by Jerry Butler
, "If You Can't Satisfy" by Hetti Lloyd, "Fool's Paradise" by The Sylvers, "Simple Things" by Lady Lee
, "Why Can't We Live Together" by Jimmy Smith, "Only One Can Win" by The Sylvers, "Whatever's Fair" by Billy Butler
, "Part 3" by Jerry Butler
& Jerry Peters, "Grief Sorry Pain & Woe" by Hetti Lloyd, "More Love" by Foster Sylvers, and "We Can Make It If We Try" by The Sylvers.
