Raw Soul Express

Raw Soul Express LP

A monster of a rare funk album recorded by a tight little combo who should have been huge! Raw Soul Express have a touch of jazz in their playing coming off here with a sound that reminds us of Wood Brass & Steel, and a rare few other funk acts of the time who knew how to do more than just hit a heavy drum and pluck a noisy bass really going beyond the usual to come up with a groove that's wonderfully crafted throughout and way way more than just the sum of its parts! Not that the band is slick or too polished, though because they definitely earn the "raw" in their name with some sharp edges on the instrumentation a sharp sense of power that really helps the whole thing cook. Titles include "RSE", "Burn The Candle", "Music Meditation", "Right On", and "Emergency".
