The Grodeck Whipperjenny, USA

The Grodeck Whipperjenny - s/t. 1970 People.

The Grodeck Whipperjenny were a Cincinnati based group, who also happened to be the backup band for James Brown during this period (and thus the album was released on Brown's People label). Without Brown at the microphone, the band obtained a chance to extend their compositional abilities. Not surprisingly, there's plenty of killer fuzz guitar fronted funk, but here it's mixed with an almost European progressive rock take on the Jefferson Airplane! So you get a mix of bands somewhere between Stark Reality and Sandrose or Julian's Treatment. Excellent album. Boots exist. They also have a second album under the James Brown that I haven't heard.

Priority: 2
