I guess somethings Sly will always remain a mystery. Anyways, nice post of one of overlooked funk bombs in the Motown catalog. Keep up the good sleuth work. This was the first Temps 70s record I bought as a youngster. Ive puled it out here and there over te years but always preferred the Whitfield years. Never gave the LP much thought amd had no idea of the fascinating back story Great read!
Also noticed Sly poking his head out here and there recently. Crossing my fingers he makes it! Same here Cheeba - I came China Doll - The Temptations - Wings Of Love (Vinyl a few of the Sly references when researching something else, then pulled out the old album for a listen.
While most of the post-Whitfield albums are crap, I do think both this one and "Song LP You" have some great funk tracks. I had cut the Temps off with "". I'm looking forward to having my mind opened. Thanks so much, Simon. Thanks for the post. From the opening bars I knew I needed this! Keep it real! Fascinating Backstory and great detective work! If it quacks like a duck That's definitely Sly running down those arrangements. Thanks for the up. Simon thanx million. Hi guys, Mediafire link deleted due to leeching by the assholes at Bentleyfunk.
Others still active. And another blogger stormed in to his defense. Astounding fuckknuckles. May the boys who leech start bleeding from their asses China Doll - The Temptations - Wings Of Love (Vinyl the guys who fucking pay studio time and print copies and have boxes lying around for their 2 years hard work.
All the best And hi from JackP who's on a long holiday. Yesterday they re-posted 14 albums from Ile Oxumare, all vinyl rips, days of work reduced to a 2 minute copy-paste. We went off at them in the shoutbox, now they're 'punishing' me by reposting my albums there. There's no real love of music there at all, Album).
And just like all the seedy pricks that dwell on the fringes of the music scene, they'll get bored and wander off one day. Yes, there is love for music out there.
But the cowboys May your recovery be fueled by drugs and a voracious STI. May you lose your reputation, quite a few friends and vast networks of brain cells.
We're talking about you because you're just hangers-on. Cheap bastards and time-wasting weirdoes. You will touch no one with your work because it is not your work.
And because it is not your work it touches no one. Fuck em royally can I say that? Oh, I think I did. And if this comment offends you blogger leech out there, before you feel a reply coming on, while you're writing it, I'll be on stage somewhere making people react to my work and will enjoy the applause. Get along little dawgy. Old post I know, but I read the first bit about the origin of slap bass and felt the need to comment.
I cant recall seeing rustee allen in the make it funky episode and Ive watched that quite a few times. I also remember larry graham being recognized as the inventor of slap bass in that documentary.
Maybe youve got them mixed up?
