"The Kashmere High School Stage Band released a total of eight albums and three 45s on the Kram label under the direction of legendary Texas bandmaster Conrad O. Johnson between the years of 1968 and 1978. All are sought after by collectors and DJs not only because of their rarity, but for their top notch funk quality. This ever-changing crew of high schoolers recorded music that funked with the best of the best -- forget high school bands, we're talking about sixteen-year-old kids who would give the JBs a run for their money! Stones Throw and Now-Again Records resident archivist Egon first reissued the Kashmere Stage Band's namesake funk tune 'Kashmere' on his Funky 16 Corners compilation in 2001. Since then, he's included their music on various compilations, and even issued some vinyl-only re-releases of full length Kashmere albums. Now, Egon presents the definitive anthology of the Kashmere Stage Band as a deluxe 2CD release. Disc one includes remastered versions of both released and unreleased studio tracks. Disc two contains never-before-heard live performances and, as an enhanced CD, a mini-documentary that offers a glimpse into the reissue process that produced the anthology, shot by veteran photographer B+. The 40-page booklet contains extensive liner notes, interviews, archival photos, memorabilia and full annotation."
