who am i?

Here's another item I been wanting to upload for an age, the story goes - some years ago, in a Wire magazine, I read an article about pre Disco Psychedelic Soul or something like that, the article highly recommended a compilation of rare tunes called 'Chains & Black Exhaust' which was released back in the 70's, the name alone excites no? Finding the LP on vinyl proved impossible, though it did get a re-release in 2002 on Memphix on CD (I see on discogs here, that it has been re-issued recently, how's that for timing). Psychedelic Rock Blues Soul Funk about describes the kinds of sounds, but only half; 'Black souls voodoo rattlesnake juju' might be more accurate. Anyway it blows me head off for the most part and is a go to rekid when tame simply will not do!! deadly!!!!!!

no problem - im usually not keen on those whole album posts, but it does seem impossible to find and so expensive, even on the cd's on discogs. if people read the comments they get the extra bonus!! :)
