Let's not forget, just in case they haven't been mentioned, THE METERS.

My God, they are fantastic. But are they underrated? Not sure actually.



In ways, they are. Every so often you'll hear them mentioned.

Randy Muller is another who comes to mind. The brainchild behind BT Express, Brass Construction and Skyy. Much props and respect.

T-Connection - from deep funk to funky disco

Bloodstone - from old-school funk and soul to electro-funk

And I think Edwin Starr also had a string of real funky albums and 12 inches...

Bloodstone? Never heard of them.

Well, I'd say - go check them out.

Start with Do you wanna do a thing:

Sure you have biggrin in 1973,they had a major hit with the smooth,mesmerizing slow jam “Natural High”.10 years later,in 1983,they had another smooth slow jam,”We Go A Long Way Back”.

Leon Sylvers III is another ultimate I must mention. He certainly gave the Los Angeles Black music scene an identifiable sound with SOLAR back in the late 1970s to the early 1980s. A sound that definitely stood out from the rest.

maybe not underrated, but surely under recognized, dennis coffey.


The man was and remains lethal. He was too featured on many classic hits including the Dramatics "In The Rain."

i dont think Leon Sylvers III was underrated though...hes pretty much widely acknowledged as one of the greatest bass players and songwriter/producers of his era...even by his peers...

To me, Sylvers being acknowledged as such came much later within the Rap and sampling eras. Even back in the day, Sylvers was never quite mentioned enough as his contemporaries.
