Put the boogie in your butt

kgang

Kool & The Gang  “Spirit  of the Boogie”  De-Lite Records  (1975)  Great funky instrumentals from the band that James Brown once said was the funkiest of its time.  Check out the title cut here!    A follow-up of sorts to their hit of the previous year, “Jungle Boogie.”  This one opens with a Sly and the Family Stone riff and moves into a Jimmy Castor-type groove.
