SHAFT – Mack Brown & The Brothers

Shaft - Mack Browne and the Brothers

A classic slab of funk-disco-soul comin at yah from 1971…

Not having got a copy of the Issac Hayes orginal double-LP, I am in no position to comment on how this single-sided cover compares.  It is however very tasty indeed to these ears – I guess the production is somewhat scaled down due to the ever reliable budget label Hallmark Records having no where near the funds for a full orchestra etc etc.  No problem to me – I love my funk/soul  stripped back – the tracks are played deep-and dirty with some superb bass/drum workouts in evidence.   

Classic stuff ……
