Skull SnapsSkull Snaps ... CD
GSF/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
One of the most legendary funk albums of the 70s – a real gem through and through, and filled with the best range of sounds the east coast scene had to offer at the time! The Skull Snaps only ever cut this one album during the early 70s – and it's a masterful blend of hard funk, sweet soul, and soaring group grooving – a mix that hangs together perfectly over the years, and which has the group sounding equally great on heavy funk and more club-oriented tunes! The group grew out of the earlier Diplomats group – and are working here with great production from George Kerr and arrangements from Bert Keyes – both talents who help keep the sound top-shelf throughout. Titles include the monster break track "It's A New Day" (which virtually became the blueprint for hip hop at the end of the 90s!), the uptempo groover "Trespassing", and the righteous funky soul cut "I'm Your Pimp"! Other titles include "My Hang Up Is You", "Having You Around", "I'm Falling Out Of Love", and "All Of A Sudden". CD

✨✧ WhatnautsInstigating (Trouble Making Fool)/I Can't Stand To See You Cry ... 7-inch
GSF, 1973. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare post-All Platinum work by the Whatnauts! The group are in fine fine fine hands here – working with arranger Bert Keys and producer George Kerr, both of whom keep the group firmly in the style of New Jersey harmony to which they were accustomed. "Instigating" is a great tune – sweet, and with a full backing – but still the great fragile harmonies that always made us like the group so much. "I Can't Stand To See You Cry" is even better – slower, sadder, and burning with a late nite feel that's simply sublime – and which is the reason why we dig harmony soul so much! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lloyd PriceThey Get Down/Trying To Slip Away ... 7-inch
GSF, 1973. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Funky work from Lloyd Price! "They Get Down" has a nice heavy funk feel – similar to work by Ripple on GSF from the same time, with a similar ensemble funk groove that's driven by tight guitars. "Trying To Slip" is a southern soul number – with a sound that's a cross between Clarence Carter and Wilson Pickett. 7-inch, Vinyl record
