商品詳細情報

Previously available as GET54068LP that version of the reissue is no longer available. The renowned Get On Down label pays reverent tribute to this classic by pressing it on 150 gram vinyl, in a 70s style Stoughton jacket. There are funk bands. And then there are The JB s. In the early 1970s, James Brown's production stable was quite simply overflowing with soul. Beyond his own genre-bursting music which brought funk and R&B to new stratospheres with each platter he released he began to curate his own label, People Records, to explore and expose the lesser-known talent in his own groups and musical universe. After a mysterious, psychedelic album by a group calling themselves The Grodeck Whipperjenny in 1970, The Godfather Of Soul released a slew of 7-inch singles for the next several years on People. In doing so, he firmly established the label as the world's premier outlet for super-funk, with artists including James Brown himself, Lyn Collins, Hank Ballard and Fred Wesley. In 1972, the next album on People was an easy choice: The JB's and their ridiculously funky full-length debut, Food For Thought. Made up of JB sidemen including bandleader Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, John Jabo Starks, St. Clair Pinckney, Fred Thomas and Bobby Byrd, the group was the definition of a powerhouse. As proof, look no further than the fact that the ten songs on this platter have been sampled by an almost uncountable list of producers over the past 40-plus years, and grooved to by hundreds of thousands. From Pass The Peas and Gimme Some More to the sonic attack of The Grunt [which also contained work from William Bootsy Collins and his brother Catfish, who had recently defected to join Parliament-Funkadelic] Food For Thought remains one of the funkiest albums ever made. Tracks: SIDE A: Pass The Peas, Gimme Some More, To My Brother, Wine Spot, Hot Pants Road, The Grunt. SIDE B: Blessed Blackness, Escape-Ism, Pt. 1, Escape-Ism, Pt. 2, Theme From King Heroin, These Are The JB s.
