    An obscure rocking funk combo from the early 70s -- one of a few, like Sweet Apple or High Voltage, who seemed to crop up on Columbia after the success of Sly & The Family Stone. Like those groups, and Sly, Mother Night's got a guitar-driven groove that was probably easy funk for the crossover crowd -- but like Sweet Apple, they're a bit hard-driven, with a heavy sound that really takes them over the top with a wild energy that probably kept them off of radio, and stuck in the underground. Lots of nice jamming, though, and these guys really know how to lay some jazzy chords into the mix to keep things fresh! Titles include "Julie Nixon", "Utopia", "Scuffle", "Warm Spot", "Groupie", "Guitar Man", and "Fools Are You" (from Dusty Groove America)

    Biography :
    Though little known in their native U.S., the Parisian-based Lafayette Afro Rock Band was among the premier funk outfits of the 1970s, later becoming a seemingly endless source of samples and breaks for artists from Public Enemy to Janet Jackson. The group was formed on Long Island, NY as the ... Read more »

    The Isley Brothers - 1971 - Givin' It Back

    Tracks :
    1 Ohio/Machine Gun
    2 Fire and Rain
    3 Lay Lady Lay
    4 Spill the Wine
    5 Nothing to Do but Today
    6 Cold Bologna
    7 Love the One You're With

    Givin' It Back is as much a time capsule as an album. Not that it can't be enjoyed on its own absolute musical terms by someone just off a boat who wasn't even around in 1971, but to really appreciate how daring it was and how delightful it is, that side of its history should be known. Those who are old enough should recall the time whence it came, an era in which hatred and disunity over the Vietnam War, civil rights, school desegregation, the environment, and a multitude of other issues were threatening what seemed, potentially, like the beginning of a new civil war, this one not between states but between factions and ethnic and racial groups in 1,000 individual neighborhoods. The opening cut of Givin' It Back, "Ohio/Machine Gun," is a slap-in-your-face reminder of just how angry the times and the people were. The track evokes instant memori ... Read more »

    Zulema - 1973 - Ms. Z.

    Soul & piano vibe with "Miss. Z" by famous singer Zulema Cusseaux with beautiful "I Was so Wrong".
    Also track "Giving Up" sampled by Beatnuts on "Beatnuts Forever".
    Great Sussex LP !

    Label: Sussex
    Catalog#: SRA-8029
    Format: Vinyl, LP
    Country: US
    Released: 1973
    Genre: Funk / Soul
    Style: Soul

    Ms Z was Zulema’s second album after her self-titled debut. Again, like her first LP, Zulema not only sang, but wrote most of her own material. She starts off great with Giving Up that has a sophisticated and heavily orchestrated neo-Disco beginning that’s contrasted with some funky wah wah guitar work. Also worth listening to are the slower and Gospel tinged I’m Watchin You and the funkier Telling The World Good Bye.

    Gladys Knight & The Pips - 1971 - Standing Ovation

    Almost a deeper soul sound than before from Gladys Knight -- a record that features some very strong southern-styled production from Johnny Bristol and Clay McMurray -- but in a way that reflects the new sort of "adult" mode of the time! The style here is a careful blend of the raspiness of Knight's roots and some of the changes going on in Memphis and Muscle Shoals -- modes that are still a bit down home, but which show a more mature presentation of their themes -- served up in arrangements by HB Barnum, David Van DePitte, and Paul Riser.

    Beautiful and haunting at times, Linda Lewis has the smooth, pop-jazzy sound that is truly unique. As a singer and songwriter Linda Lewis was exceptional. She was a brilliant talent with an uplifting spirituality. Not only did it bring back fond memories, but her voice is, like the album name, as clear as a bird.

    Lewis is very much the British equivalent of Minnie Riperton, with her band Ferris Wheel in the place of Riperton's Rotary Connection. If we're going to further the comparison, Lark is her ... Read more »
