Twist And Shout

Limited orange and black colored vinyl LP pressing housed in gatefold jacket. The only conceivable reason this 1973 album isn't generally recognized as a soul-funk classic is because it came out on Bernard Purdie's Encounter label, which mustered only five LP releases before it folded. Not only does East Coast boast the inimitable vocal stylings of the great Gwen Guthrie (only her second appearance on record), but it also features the recording debuts of two Cameo stalwarts, keyboardist Gregory Johnson and bandleader Larry Blackmon! Right from the opening track, "I Found You," a frenzied funk number featuring call-and-response duels between Guthrie's vocals, fuzz guitar, and a somersaulting horn section, this record cooks, and it's stylistic range is breathtaking, veering from the sunshine soul of "Something Deep Inside" to the psychedelic dirge-rock of "You Can't Let It Get You Down." Remastered for vinyl by Mike Milchner of Sonic Vision.
