A rare gem and highly in demand, here is the debut LP from Ebony Rhythm Funk Campaign from 1973. I’m not sure whether to call this “funky soul” or “soulful funk,” but whatever it is, these guys incorporate both sounds into a sweet concoction. This band definitely had it going on! There’s some great background info on the group on ERFC’s new myspace page. Check them out here!

The feeling I get is an amalgam of different styles…a little Family Stone, a dash of EWF, a smidgen of Tower of Power. The grooves are great and honestly, I like every track. But my favorites are “Reach For It” and “Get It On,” which unfortunately has a skip in it (but is still kick ass!). Just listen to this preview snippet of “Get It On”!

Never reissued on CD, and damn hard to find…can’t find the actual vinyl for sale anywhere right now! But keep on looking right here – they’re definitely worth the wait!
