Any thing these dudes did that's essential?

I dunno but I thought this thread was about Captain Planet.

I'm going to start a band called Heart and Water to round out the five rings. If we have a jam session with Earth Wind and Fire, maybe CP will show up and save our planet from pollution and greed. Lord knows the astronauts can't do it, bitches are too busy pepper spraying each other.

So what you're telling me is that "Let's Groove" is their only good song.

his son's tribute to it was even worse though

Forgot about that. How can you not rate it X when they have a 10 year old humping is 40 year old aunt?

Yeah Mario van Peebles said he didn't want to be in the movie because all the kids at school would see his bare ass. but his dad made him.

his son's tribute to it was even worse though
yeah that was stupid.

Bazooka -
get the s/t LP (w/the batik-looking cover) & then "the Need of Love"... both are REALLY awesome....

you ever heard the Pharoahs?....Chicago jazz/funk/freakout band of some dudes that were tight w/EWF as well as the Arkestra guys....sounds like an amalgam of both...REAL good....worth tracking down....Dusty Groove used to carry it...might still.....

Their early stuff is really good, pure funk

that's what i thought. what lp's rule?
Posted: Feb 8, 2007 5:58 pm
 
oh, cockhomo already told me, unless you have other suggestions.
Posted: Feb 8, 2007 6:12 pm
 
First band I ever went to see on my own. 1977-Springfield MA Civic Center, all n all tour. They all descended on to the stage in a giant pyramid. At least that's how I remember it.
Posted: Feb 8, 2007 6:27 pm
 
i think they also did the music in the background of Lightnin' Rod's "Hustler's Convention" LP. essential stuff there.
Posted: Feb 8, 2007 6:42 pm
 
Earth Wind and Fire are awesome, the S/T 1st album is not really the same band as the later albums..."That's The Way Of The World" is mellower, but awesome.....just find a cheap LP of "The Best...." the one with the red cover with the gold eagle on the front....that LP is a party....

they were no brothers johnson.

The Brothers Johnson were no Brothers Johnson without Quincy Jones....

B-Joe...if you want the funk go with my faves Maze....
Posted: Feb 8, 2007 6:46 pm
 
their two LPs on Warner Bros are great...some Free Jazz, fist in the air stuff mixed in with the funk...before they did Sweetback, they were called The Salty Peppers...they have 2 45s...
Posted: Feb 8, 2007 8:43 pm

Go for their first two LP's on Warner Bros. as Ritchie mentioned.

This reminds me of the 250 "Bowie is gay, but Iggy is a hetero badass" threads on this board.

Check out Ramsey Lewis' "Sun Goddess" album, which has EWF on most of the tracks. Also the Kool & the Gang "spirit of the Boogie" album.
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 2:58 am
 
ohio players.


He's the funkiest worm in the world!
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 2:59 am
 
"Sun Goddess"


one good funky track and a bunch of fusion.
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 3:46 am
 
how did this get in with all the ANS threads?
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 3:49 pm
 
i'll second kool & the gang 'spirit of the boogie'. 'winter sadness' has some crazings synths in it.
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 4:05 pm
 
yo, don't sleep on my man marvin neither. always at the forefront of all things funky. got to give it up (pt. 1 an 2). now that's funky.

Kool & The Gang, Brick, & O'Jays > EW&F

I tracked this down yesterday and am really glad I did. There is some absolutely brilliant stuff, though the version of "Tracks of My Tears" is pretty unnecessary.
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 5:19 pm
 
O'Jays

Partial to Harold Melvin & Blue Notes myself.

William Hart and Thom Bell were both stone geniuses, no question about it.

To be the best funk is the early Funkadelic stuff and the early Ohio Players stuff. A lot of that late 70's funk was mostly watered down commercial music that boreded on disco.

A llkinds of different flavors though, of which those bands couldn't do it all.

Zapp


Ta-DOW!
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 9:01 pm
 
Zapp


I saw Zapp, The Gap Band and The Bar-Kays do a rehersals for a week before a tour some years back. Each band had at least three keyboard players, or so it seemed.
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 9:08 pm
 
roger from zapp sold all his vintage equipment to erick sermon. word.

Where the hell do you live????
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 9:20 pm
 
I saw Zapp, The Gap Band and The Bar-Kays

I had to call the guy from the rehersal space to correct myself; Zapp wasn't there for that one. It was Confunktion and S.O.S Band with The Gap Band and Bar-Kays.

you gots to chill.

It's one of the few times when San Jose isn't such a dull place to be. It's the Latino oldies audience that makes it happen, I guess. The same production company does a Sacramento show on the same night. Here's their lineup:

Percy Sledge, The Delfonics, Deniece Williams, Tierra, Malo, The Persuaders, Sly Slick and Wicked, MC Magic of NB Ridaz, & The Escorts

and here's the lineup for the Fresno show a week later:

Midnight Star, Heatwave, Bloodstone, The Impressions, The Delfonics, GQ, Barbara Mason, Eddie Holman, Honeycone

I think we got the best lineup.

You take your chances with the groups, of course...sometimes there aren't many original members, if any.
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 9:26 pm
 
Posted: Feb 9, 2007 9:27 pm
 
The Persuaders

king louie rules!!!
Posted: Feb 10, 2007 3:42 am
 
I saw live back in the day:
Kool and the Gang
The Ojays (twice)
Heatwave (twice)
Sister Sledge
Tavares
Rufus w/ Chaka Khan

that was all back in the 70's...there's probably more that I can't remember.
