Chakachas - 'The Party' (1972) Fake latin funk straight outta Belgium. Gaston Boogaerts was the alleged leader of the group, but investigation proved that Chakachas were a bunch of Belgian studio musicians looking to made some money on the side via outside work. They hired a New York band, Barrio, to do live dates. In 1972 Chakachas released their only hit, 'Jungle Fever' reaching towards the top 10.
Lalomie Washburn - 'Man Power' (1977) Lalomie "Marion" Washburn, nickname "Lomie", often provided background vocals for Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder and Quincy Jones albums, but despite her own disco release in 1977, 'My Love Is Hot', she is best known as a songwriter. Lalomie was also the featured vocalist with the group Hi Voltage during the Eighties. Lomie died in september 2004.
Irene Reid / Moondance (1970) Jazz legend Irene Reid has been a singer all of her life. In 1947, she won the Apollo Theater Amateur Hour for five consecutive weeks. From 1948 to 1950, she was the vocalist for Dick Vance, the big band at the famous Savoy Ballroom. As a result of her stint with Dick Vance, Count Basie asked Irene to audition with his band, and she sang with Basie from 1961-62. There were European tours during this period, with appearances in Sweden, Switzerland, England, France and Australia. She has appeared in 'The Wiz' on Broadway and shared stage billings with Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughn, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King and many others.
Mereilles - 'O Orvalho Vem Caindo' (1966) More madness feat.the Brazilian masterdrummer Meirelles & his Orchestra. Taken from his 60s album 'Bossa Nova Fire Relax.'
Bossa 70 - 'Get Out Of My Way' (1971) This incredible funky tune was recorded in 1971 in Lima, Peru by this relatively unknown 6 piece ensemble, called Bossa 70. This cut is simple very rare and very funky.
The Undisputed Truth / Showtime (1979) The Undisputed Truth served as the launching pad for producer Norman Whitfield's funk experiments. The original trio of Joe Harris, Brenda Joyce and Billie Ray Calvin was assembled from two struggling groups that couldn't land a deal, the Delicates and the Preps. Whitfield hooked them up with a classic song for their debut single, 'Smiling Faces Sometimes'. They piddled along for the next couple of years, landing moderate hits like 'Help Yourself' and "Big John Is My Name;" they also recorded the original version of 'Papa Was A Rolling Stone'. LPs such as Face to Face and The Undisputed Truth were loaded with extended psychedelic funk jams with plenty of experimentation in the mix. The cumulative effect was reminiscent of Funkadelic, whom Whitfield had obviously been checking out.
