Cane and Able “ Cane and Able” 1972 French Psych Funk










Cane and Able “ Cane and Able” 1972 French Psych Funk…recommended..!
full
CANE AND ABLE First album from Cane and Able of the Paris funk scene of 1970’s Psychedelic wah-wah and fuzzed guitars, deep soul vocals, hot brass and strong funky grooves Includes a funky version of Wilson Pickett’s “Don’t Knock My Love"and a cover of "Who’s Gonna Take The Weight” ….. 

Ultra-rare album of this cult group from the Paris funky scene of the 70’s! An absolutely killer funk album full of wah-wah and fuzzed guitars, deep soul vocals, hot basselines, wild afro percussion, and a really spaced out production. Essential !!! 

A fantastic bit of tripped out funk! Cane & Able were one of the many groups that came out of the collective surrounding the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band in the early 70s — and like that group, Cane & Able draw on a wide range of influences to create a heavy funky sound. The album mixes the African influences used by the LARB with more of a hard soul vocal approach, with some cuts sounding a bit like material from Atlantic albums of the late 60s, but handled with more of a fuzzy edge. Includes a great funky reading of Wilson Pickett’s “Don’t Knock My Love“, a cover of “Who’s Gonna Take The Weight“, and the long tripped-out groover “Girl You Move Me“ …….
