"The fifth stop on the Eccentric Soul train finds us digging through the photo albums and tape libraries of Phoenix, Arizona's second family of soul. Dyke & the Blazers were great, sure, but when we heard a cover of 'Funky Broadway' being destroyed by a wedding band, we knew that there had to be more to the legacy of Arizona soul than an awkward teenager doing the centipede. Enter producer/songwriter Mike Lenaburg and his ramshackle 'stable' of performers; Michael Liggins, Ronnie Whitehead, Sheila Jack, We The People, Small Paul, Lon Rogers, the Soul Blenders, the Soulsations, and, arrests pending, the Newlyweds. Released on a half dozen local and national labels throughout the '60s and '70s, Lenaburg's recordings represent that wrong side of the desert sound. A melange of Tejano psychedelia, flutey funk, horny soul, and fist fight doo-wop, 'Eccentric' just might be an understatement."
