The story here goes back to Italy, for this private pressing on Ampex from famed Assagai’s leader, Charles Hilton Brown. Among outstanding renditions and re-arrangements of funk and soul classics, the outstanding number here is the superb funk gem titled “Arguments“. Call it afro-rock, if you like, it’s all about stupid dope sounds.
The record here is in superb shape, with minor light marks that don’t affect play. Cover has a humidity stain on the upper corner, as per picture. Crate digging to the finest, for this old-school gem. Don’t sleep.
