2008 release. This is the first volume in Jazzman's Holy Grail series, including the rarest and most coveted soul, funk and jazz LPs ever released. And that's what Uncle Funkenstein is all about. Never before on eBay and impossible to find, this is an ultra-rare LP from1983 that funk collectors talk about but never see. One of the ultimate private-press funk/jazz LPs, with just a handful of known copies. The original album bears all the hallmarks of a local, private press album -- black and white budget cover, home-made "conceived on a kitchen table" sleeve design, self-produced and on a shoe-string budget. Some of these kinds of records are over-hyped and have all kinds of amazing things said about them -- only for the MUSIC itself to disappoint. Not so with Uncle Funkenstein -- you'll know that from the moment you hit track 1 and the awesome bass blows you away. Horn-driven, piano-smattered classic jazz with shakers full of big-hipped funk. All songs fully licensed, never before reissued, and restored from the original sources. Includes a 8-page color booklet with in-depth liner notes, interviews, and previously-unpublished photographs. Cover features the original album artwork.
