So I'm in Columbus Ohio after doing a 2 day run here in this state. Waiting at the airport and Ohio Players "Never Had A Dream" came on the iPod shuffle, shortly followed by "Pride And Vanity." It got me thinking about how incredibly good these guys were. From the very beginning before they we're on Westbound we're talking real SOUL music, and of course the several album run they had during the early to mid 70s they're pretty much untouchable. Frickin' "Pride And Vanity" is a perfect song. And their run was solid through the disco shit they did later on which of course is all classics. They're not under appreciated in the least. But are they in contention to be mentioned when we talk of GOATS? I kind of think so. Ohio is the funkiest state in The Union for sure. Plus I made my first beat ever back in the early 90s from "Pain" Okay that's it. I spend way too much time bored at airports.
