A Beautiful Black Ruby!!

Well, so much for disappearing while on vacation :) My God, this album is slept on! What a shame. This is why digging is sooo worth the pain, money and heartache. Because there are gems just thrown into the great abyss of the past only to be heard by those who grab their shovels. I say again, what a damn shame! One of the many benefits my parents bestowed me was a deep knowledge of the unknown soul and jazz of their days. Every time I "discover" another masterpiece my Dad will respond, "You didn't know about that?!". No Dad. And until you compile a list of all the bad-assery out there that you know of, it is up to fate. Anywhooo, This is one HELL of a soul album  from '72 which  holds it's own to ANY of the giants around the late 60's, early 70's. 
Again, I really will not spent any time elaborating on an album's production or an elaborate review, but a brief synopsis followed by a full dose of the album. Love for anyone who leaves comments, and I really like to hear what you cats want. So, let me know. Black is back. So, dig it!


  1. Just wanted to say that this blog has superior taste! Been a big fan of some of these rarities for a long time and it's great to see them rounded up in one place. Keep up the good work as they're all killers so far.

    1. Thanks for tha love, kind Sir! And I'll tell you like I ask of the others...If you have ANY requests then let me know and I can see if my collection contains it. Thanks again, and keep bumpin those bad drops!!

  2. hey eddie, thanks as always for these great tracks!
    Unfortunately tracks 5, 6 and 7 seem to be down, any chance of a re-up ?
