Harold Ray Live in Concert -- Live
MC5ish soul-R&B-rock from Oakland. Thirteen covers of classic 60s soul/R&B songs with tons of energy -- hip-pumpin' mojo and saxophone honking and lots of grunts and screams. The live mix is a little off at times, but what do you expect? Sure, they're borrowing heavily from classic funk and R&B bands, but they rock! All the tracks are good!
