Linked below: Egon’s newest Funk Archaeology post at Red Bull Music Academy’s website, this time offering a peek into the process behind the forthcoming Richard Marks anthology on Now-Again. Read about the records that this soul and funk great left behind after he passed away, and immerse yourself in the process that we live every day, trying to give unsung heroes their due props while they’re still with us.
The download this time around: a second cut from the rare Moon Song publishing demo LP referenced in the piece, an unheard soul ballad by an unknown group that we’ll almost certainly never find.
