Kashmere Stage Band - Texas Thunder Soul 1968-1974
LP - with booklet
Release date: 5th July
The greatest high school band ever! Hard funk and jazz from Houston's soulful 60s and 70s... The Kashmere High School Stage Band released a total of 8 albums and 3 45s on the Kram label between '68 and '74 under the direction of legendary Texas bandmaster Conrad O' Johnson. All are highly prized by collectors and djs not only because of their rarity, but equally for their top notch funk quality. This ever-changing crew of high schoolers recorded music that funked with the best of the best - never mind forgettably short-lived school groups, we're talking about 16-year-old kids who would give The JB's a run for their money!
