Hot Damn ho here we go again! If you thought that the Hot Peas and Butta Crew were just about spinning records (and dropping heat), well you are partially right. If you have been following them around the world, you may have heard of a little documentary project called Wheedle’s Groove, documenting the Seattle Funk and Soul scene in the 60′s and 70′s. Chief Rocker Supreme La Rock has put his heart and soul into this project, and along with Light In The Attic Records (who continue to be one of the best record labels around) have come up with a limited edition, all vinyl box set of the music. It’s one of the nicest, put together packages I have seen in a while. Here’s what you get:
* Only 2,000 hand-numbered copies worldwide
* Ten 45rpm singles featuring original label art and housed in a gorgeous custom made magnetic flip-top box
* 96 page book with new liner notes interviewing the musicians and key players, unseen photos, endless ephemera, replica Seattle SuperSonics trading card, countless photos, and loads of other archival gems
* CD of “lost” Robbie Hill’s Family Affair session, circa 1975
* Meticulously remastered
* Free Download Card for all songs
What’s even better, is that there is a release party on 12/13 with Supreme La Rock blessing the 1′s and 2′s lovely.
The Crocodile & Light In The Attic presents:
Wheedle’s Groove 45s Box Set Record Release Party
