The Music City Sessions Vol. 2:  Super Strut (Vinyl 1 LP)

Various
The Music City Sessions Vol. 2: Super Strut (Vinyl 1 LP)

"LP-only R&B/Funk Collection from the same catalog as Darondo and The Two Things In One!
On the heels of the success of Darondo’s Listen To My Song: The Music City Sessions and The Two Things In One’s Together Forever: The Music City Sessions, Omnivore Recordings takes you back to the early-’70s for three volumes of various artist, vinyl-only, Bay Area funk, soul, and R&B! All three volumes are researched, produced, and annotated by Alec Palao. His essay for the 2011 boxed set, The Music City Story, was nominated for a Grammy® in the Best Album Notes category. You read right, these three compilations will be LP-only (like they should have been, had they been released back in the day), but we’ll bring it up to the modern era with a download card for each.

The Music City Sessions, Volume 2: Super Strut explores this nightclub groove with gems from many of the top East Bay players of the time, such as Al Tanner (with Love Uprisers), Victor Green and The Two Things In One, featuring organist Kevin Burton. Both funky jazz instrumentals and soulful dancefloor items populate the tracklist, and there are notable sides cut at Music City by outside funkateers like The Houston Outlaws and Cookin’ Bag. Cult favorite Darondo can be heard chanting on Charles Doc Williams’ hip medley of “Bumpin’ On Sunset” with “We Got More Soul.”"
