Kashmere stage band - plays originals

An all-original set from the Kashmere Stage Band -- one of the funkiest combos going in early 70s Texas! The album features a range of tunes written by bandleader Conrad Johnson -- all hard-hitting numbers that take off from the group's roots as a funkier high school band, and which show their evolution into an even more jazz-inflected outfit! The sound here is very much in the mode of blacksploitation soundtrack work -- as the compositions are filled with light and color, and have a richness that goes far beyond funky 45 work -- but a groove that's stone cold all the way through. Titles include "Thunder Soul", "Do You Dig It Man", "Kashmere", "Head Wiggle", and "All Praises".

Thank you very much for posting these incredible albums. I have the double CD KSB release, but never heard of these others.

Rapid Share only has one album download limit for free, which kinda sucks, but I'm not complaining. One album better than none.
