Dennis Coffey and the Detroit Guitar Band, Electric Coffey (Sussex, 1972)

Coffey Electric

To all of you who toggle between BleacherReport and the SoulfulDetroit forum when you’re at work, 1) let’s be friends I like you already, and 2) how shaken were you when you found out the real story behind the credits on that Funkadelic record? I WAS SHAKEN. Anyway, a few of those same dudes get loose on this one too – and like my friend Roger from Ohio says, I no longer need astrology thanks to modern technology. Damn do I love a good Dennis Coffey astrological banger, though.

 

Barbara Mason, Give Me Your Love (Buddah, 1972).

give me your love

I don’t really care for Barbara’s voice or the stupid babyish “Yes, I’m Ready” lyrics about not knowing how to use your body to show affection (????! Lemme draw you a picture, Ms. Mason), but this one’s got the words “Gamble,” “Huff,” and “Curtom” on the back cover, plus I already had that striped shirt, so it was destined to be.
