FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE
A great 1973 release on the Groove Merchant label, Ramon Morris' Sweet Sister Funk is reminiscent of Donald Byrd's Ethiopian Knights because it has the perfect blend of jazz & funk. The real goodies are: "First Come, First Serve", "Sweet Sister Funk", "Sweat" and "Lord Sideways". The import price is up there, but if you are into jazz/funk or soul-jazz from 1967-1974 then I would say this is not only essential, but a great rare find. Grab it while you can.
