Stage Two from 1976 comes swinging right out the gate with a set of nine monster tunes, heavy drum-breaks, reggae infused afro-beats, funky bass lines, Wah-wah-psyche guitars and lyrics that straddle between a sense of melancholy and frantic urgency. This is a quintessential Pat Thomas (backed by the Marijata band) record that every serious collector or fan needs to have in his collection.

      Howard RobertsLord Shango (Original 1975 Motion Picture Soundtrack)Tidal Waves Music

      Somewhere amid the sea of pimps and tough guys, Blaculas and Blackensteins that came to characterize the films of the Blaxploitation era was a curious little oddity that defied classification. Not scary enough to be horror, too supernatural to be drama, with far too many animal sacrifices to be a romance, Lord Shango represented a solemn, contemplative, spiritual alternative to the sort of “exploitative” sex and violence-laden criminal storylines that gave Blaxploitation its name.

        Tal RossGiant ShirleyTidal Waves Music

        The results of Tal’s nearly 25-year funk-fermentation are compelling, with a beefy stew of blues, funk, eastern rhythms, psychedelia, percussive textures, and even some rock ‘n’ roll for good measure. The album’s roots lie deep in the Mississippi Delta style of brooding blues. Whereas his former band eventually shed their hard funk for a more accessible sound, Ross surprisingly stays true to Funkadelic’s early style here on ‘Giant Shirley’. Alternating between red hot and cool funk, the album takes the listener on a fantastic journey not witnessed since Clinton and company’s early 70s output.

        This unique album is far from the standard “shake your whatever” genericness that the majority of the P-Funk camp had embraced by this point and comes highly recommended for fans of Parliament/Funkadelic (and for 70s psychedelic/funk rock collectors in general).

        Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents the FIRST ever vinyl release of Giant Shirley (it was only available briefly on CD in the mid-nineties), supervised by P-funk archivist & producer Aris Wilson. Available as a deluxe 180g DOUBLE vinyl edition with obi strip.

This unique album comes as a deluxe 180g vinyl edition (strictly limited to 500 copies) with obi strip. The jacket also features exclusive pics shot in Amsterdam in 1986 by legendary Dutch photographer Joost Leijen (known for his work with artists such as Art Blakey and Pharoah Sanders).
