1. Product Details
Limited blue colored vinyl LP pressing. One of the holy grails of 70s soul-funk collectors finally gets a proper reissue and yes original copies of this 1974 release on the Money label will cost you a lot of er money Don Julian was a Los Angeles-based doo wopper who got his start leading The Meadowlarks who recorded a number of sides for Dootone Records. The Meadowlarks then became The Larks who like so many other R&B groups of their era achieved one hit wonder immortality with a dance craze song 1964s The Jerk. They spent the rest of the 60s trying to recapture that magic with tracks like Soul Jerk and The Penguin on Jerk Records natch before resurfacing with a couple of long players on the Money label. But this is where things get a little murky. The group also recorded a soundtrack for a long-rumored never seen blaxploitation film called Shorty the Pimp supposedly Quentin Tarantino has the only copy. In 1998 Ace Records assembled tracks from the Shorty the Pimp score on a CD release but while seven of the ten tracks on Super Slick appear on that collection many of them differ markedly from their soundtrack incarnations. So the how when and where of this recording remain very much a mystery. But no matter with its blend of Isaac Hayes Curtis Mayfield Papa Was a Rolling Stone-era Temptations and 70s sweet soul e. g a cover of David Gates & Breads Make It with You Super Slick wears its influences very much on its sleeve while transcending them with soaring falsetto-filigreed harmonies percolating bass and note-perfect arrangements. Trivia note: thats Richard Berry of Louie Louie fame doing the deep-voiced spoken word parts on Super Slick and Shorty the Pimp.
