Now Again, Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A stunning batch of tracks from a very unusual LA group of the early 70s – a funk combo at the core, but one that was also equally comfortable with bits of psych and redneck rock as well!

Epic/Get On Down, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99 30.98
The only album ever from Groove Theory – but the set that introduced the world to Amel Larrieux – whose vocal talents alone are worth the price of admission!
