CD Reviews

Down Home Funk
Eddie Landsberg | Tokyo, Japan | 12/23/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For fans of the funky side of the B-3 (ala Jimmy McGriff, Reuben Wilson and Groove Holmes), this is one of those must have CDs.Recorded in Memphis (where else ?) in June or 1969, the organ gushes with soul. My favorite tune being THEME FROM ELECTRIC SURFBOARD... With tight (almost early '70s pre-disco) horn arrangements, biting guitar (Charlie Freeman, not Sparks, but could be !) and a funky rhythm section (there is a bass player), in many ways it sounds more like a McGriff or Groove Holmes CD than a McDuff CD... but what's so bad about that ? McDuff gets down and funky on tunes like The Vibrator, Butter for Yo Popcorn and Groovin' - - If you dig this vibe, check out some Charlie Kynard... and/or pray that the Reuben Wilson album with "Got To Get Your Own" and "Stoned Out of My Mind" eventually finds its way back in print."
Organ funk at it's peak

(4 out of 5 stars)

""Down Home Style" was a party killer in the '70 and I wored out 3 copies in competition with Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears and Traffic (these groups are still great!). Still one the best of the late '60's jazz organ funk albums out there and McDuff greasy r&b grooves is at its peak. The slow blues "Memphis in June" is the highlight on the album with no elbass but pure organbass like the purists wants it. "Vibrator" and "Theme from electric surfboard" are McDuff funk trademarks on various albums, but this stands out! Even with some some ordinary and less memorable tunes, this album is still intoxicating Hammond organ playing from the Brother!
