The Blackbyrds, Unfinished Business (1976)
One of those bands (The Blackbyrds) that I really only know from compilations – I think this is the first time I’ve owned a full album; they’re a funk/jazz/soul band – but this one is them in the mid-70s and heavily riding the disco tip. It’s fucking great. I love it. A funk-must – with a great energy across the whole album. It’s funny how – with so much music out there – you can find something from 40 years ago and it can instantly become a brand new favourite. And also the next great album is possibly about to be released tomorrow, or next week – there’s always that chance too. Music is the best!
