A lil' bit of boogie for Saturday afternoon

T-Bones Family were, I believe, an Aba-based group that was active in the 1970s and 80s. The incarnation on this album, Eat the Apple featured lead singer "SamBrown P.E.," "Jervis M.U." and "Allens I.E."

SamBrown still records and performs (albeit in Norway) under the name SamPeace Brown. He calls his style "hilife soul." (I don't think he has a website but Google him and you're likely to find something. Better yet, just go here.)

This track is from 1987, which means you can expect keybs plucked straight off the Velveeta platter but still enough muscular bass to keep things interesting (courtesy of Basil N. Barap, who also produced).
