Bar-Kays

Profilo:
The Bar-Kays were originally formed in 1966 as a sextet and their biggest hit was 'Soul Finger'. They looked like they had a healthy career in front of them as a session band & recording outfit before the backbone of the group was killed, along with Otis Redding, in a horrific plane crash.

Only Ben Cauley survived the crash and went on to form what could be dubbed Bar-Kays Mark II. James Alexander (Bass) was also one of the original members but was not aboard the plane because of limited seats on Redding's plane. For Alexander and Cauley and new members Michael Toles, Willie Hall, Ronnie Gordon and Harvey Henderson, the track 'Sang & Dance' was one of the first tracks from the new group, cut in late 1969.

If you like Prince, Funkadelic/Parliament, The Ohio Players, Rick James, Newcleus, Jonzun Crew, The Egyptian Lover, ANYONE with an ounce of funk in their bones- don't miss the Bar- Kays. Call it luck, call it quality- these mother f**ers suffer from habitual genius. Tragically loosing four of the original line up in the same plane crash that also took the life of Otis Redding, the band reformed mid 70's & casually knocked out hit after hit. Be it late 60's heavy psychedelic rock, 70's funk or 80's electro boogie, the production was tight as a gnat's chuff all the way.
