This is a favourite of mine. Stone cold killer track. Double LP album, 8 tracks of funky goodness. JB and Fred Wesley at their peak if you ask me - highly recommended.

Funk D.C. style. Trouble Funk, Experience Unlimited (EU) and of course the Godfather, Chuck Brown. "Baltimore, if you don't get it, it's your fault!"

I knew for sure my wife was the one for me when we walked down the aisle to "Heaven is a Place Like This." She loves this song by the Ohio Brothers!😁The album cover is the sexiest in music history. The definition of less is more. After this they just went off, although I did develop an overwhelming taste for honey.

Yeah their album covers remind me of that scene from Spinal Tap where Nigel doesn't understand the difference between Sexy and Sexist.

 

They got in some trouble with the album Honey for the cover and inside art.  There were all sorts of rumors created around that

Cymande - Dove 1972
 
sounding somewhat remaniscent of John Coltrane's A Love Supreme
 
 
Cymande (pronounced sah-mahn-day) is a British funk group that was originally active in the early 1970s. The band name derives from a calypso word for "dove", which symbolises peace and love;[1] it is also the title of one of their best-known songs. With a membership deriving from several Caribbean nations, Cymande were noted for an eclectic mix of funk, soul, reggae, rock, African music, calypso, and jazz that they called "nyah-rock".[2][3][4] The band formed in 1971 and released three albums before disbanding in 1974. After gaining newfound popularity when their music was sampled by many notable rap artists, Cymande reformed in the 2010s
