Rasputin's Stash



Release Date: 4/13/2019
Format: LP
Label: Family Groove
Quantity: 500
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release


Rescued from a haze of drugs, alcohol and questionable women comes a potent blend of heavy Chicago Funk, Modern Soul & Psychedelia. Influential recordings from the groupís sought-after funk classics have been sampled by Beck, The Chemical Brothers, Jim Jones, Raekwon & Leaders of The New School.

Stash is a previously unreleased 1976 album as mystical and mysterious as the great Rasputin himself. There is very little information available detailing where these recordings originated from or the reason why the album was never made available to the public.

This unusual release certainly breaks with the trend in this day and age of an overwhelming amount of reissues from an over-saturated & over-curated marketplace with liner notes that sometimes take longer to read than the length of time it takes to actually listen to the music. Cut directly to vinyl from the recently-found master tapes, this music presents material from the band at their artistic peak and the last recordings before Rasputinís Stash members went on to record Crystal Windsí First Flight and Attitude, Belief & Determination.
