Although Eddie Bo is long known to Dusty Groove customers as a funky peformer in his own right, during his years on the New Orleans soul scene, he also spent a good deal of time producing records for other artists. This long-overdue compilation brings together a funky funky batch of recordings that Eddie did with other artists in the early 70s, plus a few under his own name that did not appear on the other Funky Delicacies comp of his work. The sound is heavy heavy funk all the way through -- with lots of nice basslines and hard drums -- and although some of the cuts have appeared on other comps, there's more than enough new stuff here to keep your ears fresh! Titles include "Humpty Dump (parts 1 & 2)" by The Vibrettes, "Can You Handle It" by Eddie Bo, "Take Care Of Your Homework" by Chuck Carbo, "Hip Drop (parts 1 & 2)" by The Explosions, and "Show Down" by Eddie Bo.
