ROGER & THE GYPSIES - PASS THE HATCHET PT. 1 & 2
Been a few weeks; time for an Eddie Bo fix!
This record is dripping with funk, and it's surprising that it wasn't cut a few years later. The legend goes that a session for white New Orleans group Earl Stanley & The Stereos wasn't going well, so Eddie and Tommy Ridgley were brought into the studio to rearrange the track. The pair were not credited on the record, sadly, but the influence of Bo is unmistakable, and that's him delivering the lyrics.
