    One of the rarest records in the catalogue of the Tiger Lily label, best known for the Jackson Sisters!

    Currently trading at no less than $1,500, Sounds of the City Experience, a mega-rare album released in 1976!

    Released in 1976 on the anti-tax label Tiger Lily, this is the only album by the multi-racial Bronx, New York, band Sounds of the City Experience! The two instrumental funk tracks, A1, with its Blacksploitation soundtrack style, and A5, with its cool floating vibe, are just so cool! The mellow-medium A4 and other vocal tracks are also worth listening to! A mid-70s soul/funk masterpiece, full of positive vibes and freedom of mood!
