Various Artists - Down n WiredPerfect Toy
"Down & Wired Vol. 1" is a collection of dusty grooves compiled by the Germany based Perfect Toy label. There's a number of hidden gems here for the raw soul enthusiast "Tragedy" is up-tempo funk and the only song released by The Revised Brotherhood. "Going West" is a gritty guitar and organ grinding soul jazz gem. "Chain" is slow burning funk filled with blistering horns. While there were a number of funk and soul heavyweight groups during the seventies there were many groups that fell through the cracks. Thankfully we have labels like Perfect Toy to make sure they remain relevant.
