The Dave pike Set - Got The Feelin'


From the late 60s Boogaloo/Psychedelic period here's a long unavailable session from US Detroit born master vibraphonist Dave Pike –who worked in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands between 68 and 73- that was originally released Dutch only in 1968 on the Rock label Relax Records. joined by Rob Franken on organ, Joop Scholten on guitar, Ruud Jacobs on e-bass and Louis deBy behind the drums, the group lays down 12 irresistible psychy Jazz Funk tunes ranging from original compositions (‚Bacon Fat', ‚Middle Earth Herd') to instrumental cover versions of hits from James Brown (‚Got The Feelin'), Sam & Dave (‚You Got It Made') and The Classics (‚Spooky'). a good feel album from first to last note showing the band in great form: Pike's supergroovy vibes perfectly harmonize with Franken's hammond play, crisp drums, funky bass and some cracky wah-wah lashings provide a tough rhythm beat that is consistent throughout the entire LP. highly collectable Dutch Rare Groove! (Relax 1969/LP)
