2 X-over soul gems from the 70sPublished on Venerdì, 02 Maggio 2008
Thanks to a collaboration with Montreal based Afrokats Records, we present for the first time on 45 four crossover soul / deep funk undiscovered gems from Floyd Lawson and the Hearts of Stone. These 4 tracks were recorded in 1975 for the second LP from the Hearts of Stone and are possibly the best funk & soul tracks ever recorded in Quebec. On the first single (RK45 018) 'K Gee', a storming funk cover from the Nite Liters, on the flip side crossover soul beauty 'It Only Takes A Minute Girl'. On the second 45 (RK45 019) " Air I breathe" a superb 70 soul stomper and on the flip side " Rated X" a deep funk instrumental stormer capable to set every dancefloors on fire.
Floyd Lawson and the Heart of Stone were originally from Philadelfia but moved to Canada in the early 70s. The album 'Coming Out' remained un-released and was mainly used as a promotional tool, helping to land gigs within local and international tour circuits. The few LPs pressed by Floyd Lawson at the time are now very indemand by soul collectors and changes hands for vast sums of money.
