Hello Killer Groove, and any lovely readers,

I've got the Whatmusic reissue of this album somewhere... this post reminds me I ought to dig it out and re-listen.

The reason I'm posting here tho', is this: I've enjoyed reading many of your posts, now I'd like to share one of mine with you and your readers:

The Earth Disciples were a very obscure band - unsdeservedly so, as I'm sure you'll agree, if you know them - who released one album, Getaway Train, on Sonny Lester's Solid State label, in 1969. A fantastic blend of instrumental funk, soul, jazz and rock, with a dreamily psychedelic edge, it's a real lost gem.

I learned of them via the four brothers beats blog, which is now invite only. That lead to me buying both their album and the accompanying 45. I've also written an article on the album, recently published in the UK. Some more info that didn't get into the article can be found here:

I'm corresponding with the drummer and bassist, and we're hoping to get the Earth Disciples back on the tracks some time soon, so watch out for further developments over at the funky goat blog, and if you're interested in the band get in touch via my blog comments area,

cheers, the goat
