LP version. Custom made, thick-cardboard, tip-on gatefold jacket. 160 gram vinyl. OBI strip and re-sealable "Japanese-style" plastic sleeve. Contains booklet with the story of this band, told for the first time, and many unpublished photos. Includes download card. Edition of 1000. "One of the [most] sought-after funk albums: a concept-piece executed by a Las Vegas hustler, pairing the troubled musings of a transient vocalist with the exuberant funk of a teenage trio. Embellished by session musicians in Hollywood with synthesizers and a large horn section, Marvin Whoremonger lurked behind a garish, anonymous jacket and failed immediately, despite producer Cholly Williams exhortations in his liner notes that the album would lead to international stardom for all involved. Forty years later it has aged well, and stands as an immediately accessible - yet bizarre - exercise in late-period, real funk music. Custom made, 'mini-LP', tip-on CD packaged with perfect-bound booklet packaged in O card."
