Good Day at Black Rock


PLAY LOUD!!!

Sorry about the 'slide show' visuals. The thing is, I could've posted a live version of this, but it's the studio version that first blew me away and it's the studio version I wanted to share.

Mother's Finest was an interracial rock/funk band that formed in Georgia in the early 7o's. The front woman with 'the voice' is Joyce "Baby Jean" Kennedy. This monumental cut was from the 1977 Epic album, "Another Mother Further"

In 1992 the band put out an album called, "Black Radio Won't Play This Record" which was just really their hard earned experience. The single for "Baby Love" went up to #58 on the PoP Singles Chart, but topped out at only #79 on the Black Singles Chart.
