Working the same vein as Black Merda and Band of Gypsys, 70s psychedelic funk outfit Kool And Together are getting the Heavy Light treatment next month. Forged in south Texas, the group merged raw, thick-grooved, soul and r&b with era-appropriate rock & roll (imagine an underground rag-tag version of Sly & The Family Stone). With a release set for October 4th, Original Recordings collects the best of the group’s 70s work, showing off their penchant for stretching out, multi-tracked vocals and love of distortion pedals.
