SLY, SLICK & WICKED- CONFESSIN' A FEELING/ LOVE GONNA PACK UP (AND WALK OUT)
When I worked in a record store in the 90s I was intrigued and perplexed by a series of CD's called "Lowrider Oldies". They had many familiar (as well as not so familiar) titles but didn't give artist info (or any other info for that matter). Knowing a bit about lowrider culture didn't prepare me for the first Lowrider oldies show I attended about a year ago. Selling out the HUGE Hp pavillion in San Jose (with no mainstream publicity) were Barbara Mason, Eddie Holman, Blue Magic, Santo and Johnny, and this mysterious group called Sly Slick And Wicked. Doing a combination of familiar cover tunes as well as a few of their own (including Cofessin...) I was more than intrigued by these ultra cool cats. Confessin' is an incredible deep soul ballad, and the b-side is a stellar funky number. Thanks to the Latino oldies community for helping keep soul music alive.
