    ive been looking like crazy for that one. Is it raer? Seems like her records are everywhere but this one I cannot find. 

    It is rare.  I think Jazzmon reissued it.  I was able to get mine of the Bay for a great price.  'Scogs it's like a $30 piece.

    Agree on the neu funk.  Desco was my era and a gateway drug back in the late 90s.  I knew Phillip Lehman and helped design a later version of the Desco web site before the label folded.

    Cool! Do you know what happened to him after Soul Fire? All I ever heard was he was a bit of a mad scientist, had an existential crisis of some sort, signed over Soul Fire/T&S to El Michaels and Jeff SIlverman and became a cave diver in the Caribbean or something?

    He is related to the Lehman Brothers empire, so he could do pretty much anything he wants. What I heard is that he dropped everything and moved to Peru to surf.
