"Maceo And All The King's Men - Doing Their Own Thing-1970 US":

The first record by Maceo Parker & All the King's Men after their parting with James Brown in the early 70s. Maceo left James Brown's band for a few years and struck out on his own with a firey little combo that was every bit as funky as the JBs! The record captures the group at the height of their powers and it's a must-have for any fan of the the James Brown sound, as it's got lots of hard drums, rumbling basslines and some killer work on funky horns.

Great funky stuff!!!
Members: Bernard Odum (bass) Melvin Parker (drums) Alfonzo Kellum (guitar) Jimmy Nolen (guitar) Eldee Williams (Saxophone Tenor) Richard Griffith (Vocals,Trumpet) Maceo Parker(Vocals,Saxophone Alto, Tenor)
