HOT, FUNKY, & SWEATY
The ONLY recording ever made by the Soul Lifters. Scouted by Lelan Rogers, the same cat that recorded Maceo & all the King's Men, this is sadly your only opportunity to hear this group. Nearly all funk collectors will agree that one of the illest (and rarest) 45's EVER. Despite a fantastic sound and a production credit to famed soul DJ Shelley Pope, it’s likely the 45 didn’t sell well – hence the rarity of the original. In January of 2007, a copy was sold for $787.
Largely forgotten after years of neglect, DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist incorporated this break into their famous "Brainfreeze" sets, and left thousands of curious ears wondering who could create such a devastatingly funky jam. Ladies and gents, the Soul Lifters.
