✨✧ General CrookGeneral Crook (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Wand/Octave (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The only full album ever cut by General Crook – a great soul talent from Chicago who's best known for his earlier funky 45s! This album's great, though, and it has Crook moving past the hard funk of earlier days – into a sweet mellow soul vein that's somewhere in the territory of Leroy Hutson or Bobby Wilson, but a little bit funkier at times. Many tracks have keyboards (moog, clavinet, Fender Rhodes) in the lead, always played by Crook – but the real treat is the vocals, which are extremely soulful on the best cuts, in an honest indie early 70s mode that's rarely duplicated! In fact, the ballad cuts are really the best on the album – and even though we dig Crook's funk work, we're really sent by the mellower cuts on the LP, like "The Best Years Of My Life", "I'm Satisfied", "Tell Me What'cha Gonna Do", and his sweet remake of "If This World Were Mine", which starts with a great monologue! Other cuts include "Reality", "Fever In The Funkhouse", and "Lyin Cheatin Woman". CD features bonus tracks – single mixes of "Testing" and "Fever In The Funkhouse". CD

✨✧ General CrookGimme Some (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Down To Earth, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Very nice funky stuff! This may be the best single ever by this lost Chicago funk artist. It's got a great hard groove, in a very James Brown way, and raw heavy lyrics in the best funky 45 tradition. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Down To Earth, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A funky classic from this lost Chicago soul artist! "Get Over" has nice tight backing, with a raw James Brown-esque sound, courtesy of Burgess Gardner. A nice one from the old days, and the flip's pretty keen, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Shama, 1982. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Syl's last big record – a sweet bluesy groover for the clubs, with a bit of an older feel to it. "Ms Fine Brown Frame" was written with General Crook, who also produced and arranged. Backing on all tracks is by the James Cotton group. 12-inch, Vinyl record
