Maceo And All The Kings Men - Doing Their Own Thing


Fantastic album of hardcore funky cuts, with a great jazzy tip on the righteous solos laid down by Maceo and the band. Recorded in the time that Maceo was away from James' band, with a crack lineup of players including Melvin Parker, Jimmy Nolan, Bernard Odom, and L.D. Williams. Nearly every cut is a lost funky gem, with funky bass, hard drums, and cool horn solos with a large sense of humor. Highlights include "Southwick", "Got to Get 'Cha", "Maceo", and the fantastic "Funky Women". This one was hard to find in the old days -- so grab it while you can and please leave a comment

This is great!Funky music for funky soul. Actually, I'm more on rock and ballad genre of music, though I also appreciate funk. :)
