Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
This is a record I found years a go at Big Dog Records in Wayne, PA for $10 casually sitting on top of a stack of wack easy listening records. I bought it on the cover art alone. I got home and slapped it on the turntable and was blown away. Dream Queen's music was as gorgeous as the lady who adorned the front panel . The LP is buttery smooth funky spiritual jazz with plenty of Rhodes decorated with a tight horn section and bubbly percussion. At the time (early 2000s) nothing could be found out about the group other than they were from Utica, NY. Band leader and keyboardist Bobby Hamilton was tracked down in 2012 and a limited reissue of this album was released by French rare groove authority Superfly Records. As of writing this, original copies fetch upwards to $500. I think my $10 investment has done very well, thank you.
