Two vinyl LP set from Arlester "Dyke" Christian and his band The Blazers, who are second only to James Brown as trailblazing avatars of Funk. We Got More Soul - the Ultimate Broadway Funk is the ultimate collection of this consummate black artist. The complete Dyke & the Blazers recordings 1966-70 - a whopping two and a half hours worth of steaming grooves - have been liberated from previously locked vaults, all presented here from the master tapes. The original released versions of most Dyke & the Blazers material were edited down from lengthy jams, with Dyke riding the groove in his own inimitable manner. Meticulous tape research means we are now able to hear for the first time the full length unedited, unexpurgated takes, exactly as they were run down live in the studio. Classic items including 'Let a Woman Be a Woman', 'Stuff', 'Funky Walk', 'Funky Bull' and 'Runaway People' are sometimes twice as long as originally presented. Additionally there are a staggering fourteen unissued titles, ranging from downhome R&B grooves such as 'Swamp Walk' and 'Extra Funk', to dead-on-the-one funk workouts like 'Booga Jivin' and 'Let's Do It Together', that really should have been released. 18 tracks. BGP. 2007.

blushing too bad.Two and a half hours of smoking grooves that should be worth anybodys money. If you
love raw funk, and especially James Brown, you got to have this.
Hit Me Again, Two Times!

The songs on both discs are presented in full length versions.
On Disc 2 Dyke Arlester is joined by musicians from The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band, a supertight unit
that somebody once branded "stonerfunk". After listening to everything they recorded with Charles Wright,
it's not difficult to agree, they kind of had more of a rock n roll feel to their funk, but as The Blazers,
they serve the funk straight up.
The only thing you could hold against them is that the songs doesn't have a whole lot of variety, and Dyke
wasn't the greatest singer, but the man sounds cool, and it just goes to show that feeling and attitude
often carry more weight than ability.
Scratchy guitar riffs, fat horns, greasy organ and Dyke hollerin'!
