The Poets of Rhythm

A long time favorite of mine. Seriously, if you’re not up on this record, do so now. No, don’t wait till tomorrow…now. Amazing soundscapes on this wax from these incredibly versatile musicians. Follow up your investigation with In The Raw recorded under the alias of The Whitefield Brothers. Don’t stop there, hunt down all the releases…if you can. Oh yeah, and if you get any of those obscure 45s, send them over!
