Initial research tells me there's a lot to explore here
Is it worth exploring? If so, where shall I start?
'UFO' and 'Moody' is where to start, basically.
You can get the compilation 'A South Bronx Story' pretty easily, its not so coherent but it has a good amount of their stuff.
you've basically just got a bunch of singles, and the old LPs all kinda bundle together different singles.
that comp on Soul Jazz is the best starting point.
then the newer LPs are on Soul Jazz and they're easy to find, but they're not as good as those old singles.
is one of my favourite albums of all time, i'd advise starting with that and the self titled EP. The latest compilation has "Bam Bam Jam" and "Standing In Line" on it, well worth buying for those songs alone, and if you can find it, check out "Party Music", which is one of my favourite songs (and is shamefully absent from the soul jazz compilations).
