Grits and Gravy The Best Of The Fame Gang
[CD Ace]

Grits and Gravy The Best Of The Fame Gang

Stax had the MGs; Motown had the Funk Brothers; Fame had The Fame
Gang a crack studio outfit that provided the necessary backing for
hundreds of essential soul and pop records made at the Fame studio
in the late 1960s and early 1970s. As with the MGs, the players took
advantage of studio downtime to lay down their own off-the-cuff funky
jams, several of which developed into items strong enough to release.
Grits And Gravy The Best Of The Fame Gang gathers the cream of these
recordings in a scintillating stew of soulful grooves. The compilation is
named for the second of the groups 45s, a hotly rated item amongst
deejays today. The act s strongest singles sides are included here, along
with selections from their Capitol album Solid Gold but the meat of the
programme is in the plethora of previously unissued cuts such as Soul
Stutterin, Crime Don\'t Pay, Cannonball and Shoalin, all brimming with
warm, funky and soulful vibes. Hot versions of items such as Sly\'s Stand
and Cannonball Adderley\'s Walk Tall are an added bonus. Grits And
Gravy is part of Ace Records ongoing reissue programme of the Fame
catalogue, and is the result of some intense vault inspection: so count
on top-notch sound and thoroughly researched notes, based on
interviews with several of the members of this remarkable aggregation.
