Junie Morrison style Players...
...quantum pocket time. That is, you had to have been there to know. Nineteen seventy three, we were playing the heck outta Morrison's/Ohio Player's "Ecstasy" with that just right funky guitar and bass and organ intro by Sugar, Jones and Junie and always complained that at 2 minutes and thirty some odd seconds it was too short... those of us with the album laughed at the chutzpah associated with the title of the opening jam on side 2--"Food Stamps Y'all"...the slow cut in the streets off the album was "Silly Billy", a little mellower than that other great slow jam from the "Pleasure" album "Varee is Love", but hey, back then, a new Players jam was the talk of the streets...after this the Players had a Westbound Records greatest hits album and then they moved to Mercury Records to put out "Skin Tight"--they lost Junie in the transition, but shortly afterward his Player stint, he worked with Clinton and P-funk and did his own work, most notably the album "Bread Alone"...this album "Ecstasy" has some of the Players best Westbound Records work on it--it is hard to find, a rare treasure for true funk fans...
