About this item

Subtitled "Barrio Breaks, East Bay Grease, Folk Funk And More From The Vaults Of Atlantic, Reprise San Francisco & Warner Brothers 1967 - 1975", "From Burbank to The Bay Area" is not only a musical trip between two locations in the sunshine state; Burbank in Los Angeles, home of Reprise / Warner Brothers Records and the vibrant Bay Area, comprising Oakland and Berkeley, then across the Bay Bridge back to San Francisco, but also a convenient way to round up some differing styles of music. Latin-tinged funky rock, latin-soul, the funky, syncopated rhythm and horn sections of Oakland's Tower Of Power and Cold Blood, a radical instrumental gem by easy listening orchestra Mystic Moods, a disparate band of singer-songwriters, funky session guys, jazzy progressive folk types and a bona-fide soul diva all add a little soulful something to the melting pot. Includes The Ides Of March, Fred Ramirez, Labelle, Tower Of Power, Jo Mama, Bamboo, Seatrain, Hard Meat, Mystic Moods and more - 20 tracks in total!
