Listen to - Think Of His Goodness
A pretty much ungoogleable private press soul LP from Connecticut's James Becton. I remember hearing the title track on one of Thes One's mixes a few years ago. Backed by the Mysterious Elements Band and Bobby Earl , Becton laces us with some ill drum machine underpinned funk on the title track "Butter & Toast" and some feel good vibes on "Tell Me Why". Remember, just like everything else you saw it here FIRST!!!!!

Kimbo Slice Look-a-like Lee Edwards delivers the goods on this very ,very rare private press soul LP. Hailing from detroit and backed by some members of soul outfit the A.D.C Band, Lee shows his range with upbeat tracks like "I Found Love" to mellow ballads like "Prove Your Love" The back cover reads..... "Lee Edwards is as invincible as the late former heavyweight champion Joe Lewis, and with a mouth as big and sound as boisterous as muhammad Ali in the ring of the entertainment world and an entertainer we believe we're going to be hearing alot from. He also imitates fifty top acts of today" Remember as always you saw it here first!

Well this LP ticks all the boxes for a classic post . Private press .. check! , Crazy auction sale .. check! , un-googleable ... check! (ok,well almost) St Thomas group Infinite Love Experience hit us with a slightly raw mix of soul, reggae and latin stylings. It features some excellent guitar work from Glen Mason and instrumentation slick enough to grace any major label release at the time.
