Review :
An excellent bit of southern funk — very much in the early mode of Little Beaver, but with a sound that’s even harder! James Knight is The Black Knight — leading a tight little combo with a raw funky 45 sound, heavy on the horns for backing, but with James’ guitar right up front in the mix, jamming hard in a way that would have made Hendrix proud! The tracks are a mix of heavy funk numbers and more tripped-out jams — and Knight’s vocals remind us a bit of Charles Wright in the old days, blaring out of the speakers with a bit of distortion and lots of soul, really driving home the quality of the songs. Titles include “Fantasy World”, “Save Me”, “Flyin High”, “Funky Cat”, “Uncle Joe”, “Cotton Candy”, and “Just My Love For You”.
