Homeboy the C.O.L. album review (MP3's Inside)
I've spoke very highly on this LP for a few months on this site, I know it looks absolutely ridiculous but it is really quality soul recorded about 5 miles from my home.
a review I wrote up on the LP a couple months back:
Here are several MP3's for you gus to go ahead and judge for yourselvesHomeboy & The C.O.L.[/b] S/T" (Alwest)
I saw this LP sitting on a shelf in a thrift shop and chuckled at the artwork, I mean its hard to take a look at that cover and think "serious artist". However I remembered seeing a picture of ths LP the record grail website Black Vinyl Junkie and I figured it would be well worth the $0.95 they were asking for it and sure enough it was more than worth the gamble. The LP has a raw early 80''s soul vibe with a very strong keyboard melody featured in almost all the tracks. Songs like "Homeboy's Revenge" and "Funk Yourself To Death" exemplify the idea of modern soul.
