Mother's Finest (CD)
Arguably the greatest asset of the seventies was its ability to nurture a kaleidoscope of sounds and styles many of which would eventually collide and mutate into a number of spin-off genres. The emergence of funk-rock was a major diversion during these years with acts like Sly & The Family Stone, Earth Wind & Fire and the Isley Brothers lacing urban funk with elements of rock. Make that H.E.A.V.Y rock. Mother's Finest, a multi racial unit, originated from Macon, Georgia during the early seventies and learned their trade playing the same clubs and concert halls as their 'white' southern rock counterparts. In many respects it was baptism by fire but the bands impressive ability to connect with audiences won them a respect that few could ignore. 'Discovered' by renowned hard rock producer Tom Werman (Cheap Trick, Ted Nugent, Motley Crue) who signed them to Epic Records and fronted by the amazing Joyce 'Baby Jean' Kennedy, Mother's Finest delivered in 1976 one of the eras most astounding albums. Fusing gritty funk with an explosive hard rock underbelly, the band was instantly praised as a welcome amalgam of Led Zeppelin and Sly & The Family Stone. With guitar hero Moses Mo unleashing some of the heaviest riffs laid to tape, the album became a critic's favourite allowing the band to hit the road in a firestorm of power and passion supporting just about every major act of the day including Kiss, Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, the Who, AC/DC and Lynyrd Skynyrd to name just a few. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 2 bonus tracks, 4,000 word story of the making of the album, previously unpublished photos, all spread out over a super 16 page full colour booklet.
