Thanks to the inclusion of the excellent "Spider Web" on the amazing Florida Funk compilation, groove collectors worldwide were introduced to the excellent vocal stylings of Gainesville, Florida's Weston Prim.

A few years prior, this jaw dropping record was somehow licensed by Los Angeles based Brent records, who were just a few releases away from being out of business. This record hardly ever turns up, and there's also no evidence of a local Florida release which was a common occurrence during the era when labels would license a single for wider distribution.

Weston Prim was part of a groundbreaking scene of musical integration centered around the university in Gainesville; like a smaller scale Memphis, these musicians ignored segregation and were bound together by the music they loved.

from 1967...
