A key member of the highly regarded 70's Soul 8 man band the Mighty Ryeders, Lionel Harrison guides, writes and arranges this double helping of Florida Soulful dance.

We lead with "Strung Out (On Your Love)" a big tune on the European rare-soul scene for decades. An ingenious fusion of pleading Soul and Jazz Funk. Classy Hubert Laws inspired flute intro, meets an empathic jazzy guitar pulses driving the dance rhythms; languid horns lay down real depth for a convincing lead vocal, that cracks and quivers on all the right notes, ensuring your complete attention is paid to his "strung-out" situation..

A classy recording that ignores all that "happening" Miami Boogie sweeping the world at the time...

Nothing wrong with Miami Boogie it was after all a leader in the field of club-music in 1980. Staying true to their city, the official a-side "Sittin' On It" is considered on of the finest of it's genre. Blaring horns, unrelenting bass guitar picking, collides with Miami horns and unstoppable Club Boogie unfolds as the groups vocalist get down and get really funky.. epitomizing the Miami Sound circa 1980.

Two highly sought after for two different scenes both equally stalked, as this D.I.Y. indie rarely surfaces for sale.
