Originally released in 2004. Mini-gatefold sleeve with 24-page booklet. "Decades before grunge, Seattle was a city with a deep soul tradition (Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Jimi Hendrix). Wheedle's Groove takes you back to Seattle's badass days of funk & soul -- Jimi's high school buddies; original 45s that fetch for upwards of $4,000; and songs recorded by the legendary Kearney Barton (The Sonics, Kingsmen, Ventures). For the first time on CD, 21-choice cuts of ultra-rare Seattle funk, jazz, and soul, including all the era's prime movers & shakers: Black On White Affair, The Overton Berry Trio, Soul Swingers, The Johnny Lewis Trio, and Ron Buford. Plus, 3 brand-new unreleased bonus tracks: 21st century Seattle artists inspired by classic Emerald City soul, including the Sharpshooters, and Clarence Mack/Dynomite D (Modest Mouse, Beastie Boys, Kid Koala). Over two years in the making and it's finally arrived!"
