Pieces Of Peace!!

Yet another gained through a friend. This time, from someone who always keeps an eye on Chicago music. A little info found on them:

'One of Chicago's premier soul and funk bands of the late 1960s and early 70s, they scored the enviable gig of backing up Syl Johnson during a number of his shows and, later, on his incendiary 1970 LP Is It Because I'm Black.' 

I don't know about you, but I love Syl's work. It is another garage funk album which was ment to be released around '72, but never was until 2007 as DJ Shadow dug up the session tapes. With assistance from Sarab Records, he compiled the songs into this self titled solitary full album. Lots of rotten funk and heavy on the horns? Yes, please! Since this is a CD rip, the sound quality is as crisp as the originals allowed
