Vinyl rip & scans from MRL 389
Does the blogosphere really need another rip of this B3 bomber? Well, you be the judge. If nothing else the full scans may be a welcome addition to your library. Not to brag but from all the versions I have so far (those listed at the shad shack), I have to say this one is so far the best quality since the vinyl was in much better condition than I remembered and little more than minimal ClickRepair was needed. It's also mastered much louder than most of the MRLs I've ripped so filtering levels was unnecessary. If you hadn't already picked it up at Sounds from the Funky Goat in AAC or the crackly FLAC at Freakywax and you missed your chance at funkydisposition and My Favourite Sound, which have both gone private, then you oughtta jump on this funky monster stat.
Dusty Groove Review
Funky organ and plenty of vamping -- a really tight little set from the mighty Charles Kynard -- who's working here with a really wide-ranging command of the keyboard! As with some of the other Mainstream Records sessions of the time, the backings here are somewhat full -- arranged and conducted by Richard Fritz with a style that's almost soundtrack funk at points, but which still has a more jazzy feel overall -- thanks to the space given to Kynard's organ solos, and to backings from players who include George Bohannon on trombone, Arthur Adams on guitar, and Paul Humphrey on drums. The set features a surprising cover of Joe Quarterman's classic "I Got So Much Trouble On My Mind" -- one that's almost as funky as the vocal original -- plus "The World Is A Ghetto", "Superstition", "Zambezi", "Summer Breeze", "Momma Jive", and "You've Got It Bad Girl".
