Hidden Strength – Hidden Strength (1975)

Personal Note: Rare diamond in the rough from this 6 pc outfit. A real gem of an album that I like to catagorize along side other 2nd tier funk bangers such as Magnum, Black Heat & Ripple.
The band can get very jazzy but theres plenty of full-on soul & funk. At times, The brass work sounds like something straight off of a Fela Kuti & Africa 70’s LP. Well known in the collector’s arena for the tune “Hustle on Up”

01 It Didn’t Have to Be This Way
02 Happy Song
03 Angel of Love
04 Hustle On Up (to the Bump)
05 Why Does It Feel So Good to Me
06 I Wanna Be Your Main Man
07 I Don’t Want Be a Lone Ranger
08 All We Need is Time
09 Hustle On Up (to the Bump) (Extend Disco Version)
10 Hustle On Up (to the Bump) (Instrumental)
