Bay Area Funk

Two excellentísimo tracks from the very great Bay Area Funk compilation on Luv n’ Haight. Sugar Pie DeSanto used to be part of Johnny Otis‘ and James Brown‘s Revues and is apparently still rocking it (check the video below). The Fire track is supposed XXXL rare, judging from Jazzman’s comment: “your chances of ever finding an original copy of this 45 in one lifetime are probably slimmer than James Brown performing on the planet Mars with Stark Reality as his backing band.”

So there you go.
