"Almost 10 years ago, Light In The Attic and DJ Supreme La Rock compiled the first ever set of vintage Pacific Northwest soul on Wheedleâ€™s Groove: Seattleâ€™s Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-75 (LITA
009) featuring such rare sides as â€œI Just Want To Be (Like Myself)â€ by
legendary funk outfit Robbie Hillâ€™s Family Affair. Nearly a decade on,
more unheard Seattle soul gems continue surfacing. This November 29th,
Light In The Attic is honored to release, for the first time on vinyl, Gotta Get Back: The Unreleased L.A. Sessions from Robbie Hillâ€™s Family Affair.
Originally recorded at RCA Studios in Los
Angeles in January 1975 with Executive Producer Cuba Gooding Sr. and The
Main Ingredient (the Family Affair were the Ingredientâ€™s backing band
at the time), these five tracks remained lost until the recent discovery
of the original multi-track masters. The tapes were carefully mixed by
renowned engineer and producer Steve Fisk. To say itâ€™s a miracle that
these tapes surfaced would be a massive understatement.
Robbie named his band â€œFamily Affairâ€ for a reason â€“ his band is his
family and what you hear is proof that the blood really is thicker than
the mud. What youâ€™re now holding in your hands is a pinnacle recording
from a band that continues on to the present day, surviving in Seattleâ€™s
Central District, carrying on a decadesâ€™ long tradition." - LIGHT IN THE ATTIC
