Album Review
The Byrd of Paradise
Reviewed 2007-01-09 
Texas blues piano & guitar prodigy at 13-years old, to become legendary R & B funk master. Died in the early 1990s. This is his best main stream funk hits circa 1970s.

1. Uptempo discoish soulful bounce
2. Funky comment on hard times
3. Laidback, flowing soul stroll
4. Fat struttin' funk march
5. Slow bluesy guitar over soul ballad
6. Choppy funky stomp - hard times rap
7. Singnature slicing guitar over lowdown funk strut - hard times commentary
8. 1970s poppy soul ballad - male/female vocal duet
9. Tuff, bluesy guitar intro over funky street struttin' march
10. Early rappin' over funky stomp
11. Tuff walkin' blues shuffle - smokin' Johnny Watson guitar
