What's hot and not in your headphones
Growing up when I did, I missed many of the acts of the 70s simply because I didn't pay much attention at the time.
Recently I've rediscovered some of the greatest music hidden away.
Mother's Finest were a multi-racial band from Atlanta, Georgia who were one the definitive funk rock bands of their era.
Their debut self-titled album of only seven tracks is a mixture of funk and rock with enough thump to shake your rump.
Opening with Fire they lull you into thinking that this band is rock but when they kick into Niggizz Can't Sing Rock & Roll you realise, they can really mix the two.
The funk really kicks into its groove with My Baby and carries through the remainder of the album and the final track Rain.
Want to find the missing link between Sly & Led Zep or the origins of the Red Hot Chili Peppers? You can't do any worse that this album.
