Rhythm Machine’s mid 70s soul/funk opus is expanded here with previously unreleased tracks. This band sprung from Indianapolis funk legends (and Egon’s Funky 16 Corners impetus) The Highlighters’ proverbial ashes. James Boone and James Brantley, determined to make a go of it as a show band, assembled another high-energy group of musicians to record three singles and an LP over the course of a seven year span. This album is full of charm – featuring synth-lead ballads, danceable Kool & The Gang styled funk, and snappy soul music. It’s one of the highest regarded albums in the independently-issued soul/funk canon and we’re pleased to present the definitive version now.
