Jimmy McGriff & Groove Holmes - Giants Of The Organ In Concert

Some friends of mine think this record is over-exposed but I still manage to find people who don't know it and I love blowing their minds with it...It is a classic, with a place in any bop, funk or music-lover's collection...

A live album, from Boston in 1973, I remember being drawn in by the cover (if a photo can be funky, this one surely is)...but the jams...nasty. You have two bad as can be organ players in McGriff and Holmes and three guitarists(!) with a side order of funky drums and percussion.

It's almost too much.
