These Are The JBs(Bf Rsd)
Format: LP, Vinyl
This long-lost, never heard before, JBs ‘These Are the JBs’ debut album. It was recorded with Bootsy Collins and scheduled for release on King records in 1971, but only 2 acetate copies are known to exist. It is finally released as a limited edition Black Friday release of only 3,000 vinyl copies. It includes the full part 1 & 2 version of ‘These Are The JBs plus ‘The Grunt’ and two unissued tracks. ‘I’ll Ze’ is a near 11 min Instrumental Funky jazz version of Marva Whitney’s ‘It’s My Thing’ on which the band really stretch out. ‘When you feel it Grunt If You Can’ is a 13 minute hard hitting funk jam combining Kool and the Gang’s ‘Let the music take your mind’, The Meters and other grooves. The album has been mastered specifically for Vinyl from the Original James Brown 2-track stereo master and is presented in a thick tip-on Stoughton jacket with a beautiful 12 page A4 booklet with rare photos and notes from JB historian Alan Leeds.
