"Gimme That Funk" # 5

Wayne Henderson of Jazz Crusaders fame heard ERFC and decided to produce the group's first album. “Reach For It” released in 1973 with Henderson playing trombone in the ERFC horn section. The LA Funk scene found ERFC warming-up for the likes of Curtis Mayfield, New Birth, The Grass Roots, Doby Gray, The Whispers and The Commodores.Originally hailing from Indianapolis with Guitarist Lloyd Thomas, Keyboardists Michael Woods and George Dennie, Bassist Lester Johnson, and Drummer Dwayne Gavin backed by Vocalists Pamela Tanner and Tony Roberts.

This track is from that debut 1973 album on the Uni label. Rare gem and highly in demand LP.
