Release Info: Bill Cosby - Hooray For The Salvation Army Band! (Warner 1968)

An early funk album by Bill Cosby -- with backing by the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Bill was pals with Charles Wright and crew in the hip LA of the late 60s, and he was also responsible for bringing the group to Warner Brothers -- so the fit here is quite a natural one. The record was also produced by Fred Smith -- who handled the Watts Band's albums -- and it's got a very similar feel to their classics for Warner from the late 60s -- but with Bill Cosby stepping out in front on vocals, in a similar style to Charles Wright. Cosby's singing is often a bit goofy, but works beautifully with the stoned to the bone feel of the group -- a madder match than even Charles Wright, especially on the album's "parody soul" cuts. Titles include a classic break version of "Get Out Of My Life, Woman" -- plus the titles "Ursalena", "Funky North Philadelphia", "Sunny", and a surprisingly great screaming version of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".
props to dusty groove, as usual, for the write up. 'ursalena' was sampled by the umc's.
