Description

Fueled by the success of their first two albums on United Artists as well as the hit single, Movin, the Brooklyn based Brass Contsruction continued their winning formula of horn driven funk jams with Brass construction III, released in 1977 - a banner year for funk bands thanks to hits by Earth Wind & Fire, Con Funk Shun, Brothers Johnson, Brick, Cameo & Slave (just to name a few) By 1978 , the music industry - record labels, retail & radio wanted more disco and less funk & soul, while funk leaders such as George Clinton chose to flip the musical bird at this situation with flashlight & One Nation Under A Groove, Brass Constructions commander-in-chief Randy Muller tried to make peace with the bands fourth disc, IV, which resulted in shorter, more compact tunes yet it gave their audience the grooves they love & desire. This CD reissue brings together both albums for Brass Construction fans to not only enjoy, but to compare as well as contrast between the two LPs.
