Pay attention & be aware of this 2000+ bootleg: http://www.discogs.com/The-Bar-Kays-Holy-Ghost-Monster/release/3685366 It shows 3 inner circles on the label- 2 are photocopies of the original 12" release, plus one actual/physical small circle. The labels are made from wonky poor photocopy scans. Etchings are D-123 A / D-123 B. Buyers, don't get stung, & sellers- use your eyes & stop listing these in the OG sections, twice now I have received this cheap booty passed off as an original & laughed when opening the parcel... Infuriating. If you are attempting to buy any of the original/early pressings, be double sure it matches the listing image on the page you bought it from.

That break still sounds way ahead of its time 37 f**ing years later. Masterpiece.

Both tracks were on The Bar-Kays "Money Talks" LP 1978.

ABSOLUTELY FUNKY! "Holy Ghost" is probably the funkinest track ever. The break is a fist-pumping, baby-making, earth-shattering groove to delight any lover of 70's funk and soul. "Monster" is a bit slower, but still just as funky, reminiscent of a slow drive on a Saturday night. A must have for any funk lover, collector, hip hop DJ or breaks enthusiast. Play "Monster" on 45 for an even nastier groove. May the funk be with this record!
