 - Fire Eater

  • Rusty Bryant

    Fire Eater LP (1971)

    Prestige ‎

Ranked #172 in the Soul Strut 200

One of the top funky soul jazz LPs ever from sax guru Rusty Bryant and one that embodies the signature Prestige record label sound of the 70s.  The swinging beats of Idris Muhammad sets it off especially on the infamous title cut that spotlights a monster drum break sampled by a who's who of sample based producers. If you need a little more sip of the juice, Bryant's 1972 follow up Wild Fire had a similar sound and lineup.
