More Info:

BGP returns with a foray into the unique and funky sounds that emanated from Louisiana from the late 60s through to the early 70s. The State has it's own original take on black music influenced by New Orleans and tinged with the flavor of the area's Creole culture, which for a large part is separate and self-sufficient from the mainstream of American life; this makes many of these not only highly desirable, but impossible to find. As ever with a BGP compilation we have unearthed some stone rarities and dance floor winners. The super-rare 'One Day' by Tabby Thomas, that sells for nearly a $1000 on the infrequent occasions when it comes up for sale, is one of funk's holy grails, and the low-down and dirty 'I Got a Groove' by JJ Caillier also rarely surfaces. Katie Webster's 'Hell Or High Water' is a fine example of "Sister Funk" that would rock any dance floor.
