If you know your funk, you know that the WESTBOUND label was one of the funkiest labels in the early '70s. The Ohio Players (pre-Skin Tight, when they were doing greased out grooves like Pain, Pleasure and The Funky Worm and had the bald chick on the cover), Funkadelic and Junie Morrison were all part of their stock.
Well, this album by THE COUNTS puts the icing on the cake, almost painfully. Guttaral jungle percussion, sizzling Hammond, and crackling funk licks but the top on this album (featuring members of Hamilton Bohannon's rhythm section). This album makes MANDRIL sound soft !
Plain and simple... if you haven't heard this album, you haven't been funkified. They go a jivey and visceral direction that even JB and the Meters weren't touching at the time.
If you're into heavy early '70s funk (Black Heat, Rasputin's Stash, Sound Experience, Fatback, Mandril, Ripple) this is THE album to have !
