The Vinyl Junkie
Just last week, Silver Platters found one of the rarer funk records by Ripple. As you remember, Ripple blasted its version of funk and soul during the early 1970s. In 1973, they cut their debut, which contained their signature tune, the finger-snapping “I Don’t Know What It Is, But It Sure Is Funky” complete with bluesy horn breaks. You might also sample the more orchestrated “Get Off.”
Silver Platters found a very rare white-label promo version of this LP with the oversized timing strip on the front, which I have never seen before. If you collect soul and funk, please look at this gem before it quickly vanishes.
Until next week when I unearth a few more gems at Silver Platters, keep collecting and searching for the perfect record.
