Abaco Dream - Life And Death In G & A

  • Abaco Dream

    Life And Death In G & A 45 (1969)

    A&M Records

Funk 45 two-sider shrouded with a bit of mystery.  If you really want to geek out, you can read this thread.  

From Wikipedia:

Some musicologists believe that "Life and Death in G & A" is actually a performance by Sly and the Family Stone. They note the similarity in performance of this song to other Family Stone songs, and the dissimilarity between this song and other Abaco Dream releases.

This is immediately evident when you flip the 45 over and listen to a total 360 ... a bizarre mooged-out beat trip known as "Cat Woman."  It's what the Brits call "weid gear".
