Ripple – But It Sure Is Funky {expanded edition} (1973)

Personal Note: A rare bit of Funk from the early 70’s….some tracks unreleased until this reissue. Heavy funk in the same vein as Magnum, Mandrill, The Counts, War & Black Heat. Hip-Hop lovers should recognize the “Special Ed” sample on “I Don’t Know What It Is, But It Sure Is Funky”.

    Thanks!Really like this LP, and I'm curious to hear the extra tracks. Are they all from the time of recording the first LP?

    thesoulwalk: from my recollection, This album was recorded in 73' and released the same year. The extra 11 tracks were recorded between late 73' and mid summer of 74' and was supposed to drop in 1975 on the new album titled "Hangin' In There" but for some reason the LP was first delayed and wound up in the vaults of obscurity…Never released until the reissue of this expanded edition of the debut album, "Ripple – (GA5005) 1973".
