Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Midnight Movers - Do It In The Road Do It In The Road
Funk New - LP EVS 102 Elephant V
Factory Sealed Original. Crisp Corners, No Cut-Out Holes. "Led By Saxophonist George Patterson Jr., The Midnight Movers Started Out As Wilson Pickett's Backing Band. They Were Consequently Picked Up By The Isley But The Movers Fell Out With The Isleys, And In 1970 They Went For Themselves. With The 'Do It In The Road' Album, The Band Demonstrated Its Hard Rockin' Funk Chops. While Not A Huge Seller, The Lp Surely Ranks As One Of The Finest Heavy Funk Waxings Availabe. Thangs Start Out Mellow Enough, Tho', With The Relaxing, Moody Groove Of "Music Makers". It Has The Beat, But Those Harrowing Strings In The Back, Along With Patterson's Plaintive Vocal, Give It That Jerry Butler-Esque Warmth. The Ending Is Slightly Psychedelic, As Well As Hayes-Ian, With Its Caressing String Motif And Muted Trumpets. Better Put Yo' Boots On For "Medicated Goo", For You're In The Swamps Now... Sleazy, Raw, Diamond Hard Funk Rock With A Hint Of Nawlins Piana. Also Features More Guitar Bliss By Charles Pitts Jr. One Of The Band's Best Known Cult Classics Is Up Next; The High-Energy Floorshakin' Romp "Crabs" Basically Is An Instrumental, And A Horn-Heavy One At That, With Patterson, Baritone Sax Man Jack 'Pot' Philpot And Trumpeter Curtis Pope Going For Theirs. Super Heavy Drumming Courtesy Of Abbel Woodson, As Well. I Can't Believe I Never Heard Of These Cats Until A Few Days Ago... They're The Funk And Then Some...Get This."
