The New Birth – now on CD

Released on CD last week, as quoted from Forced Exposure’s newsletter:

THE NEW BIRTH: The New Birth CD (PCD 72020CD) 16.00 “Reel Music (P & C Records) digs deep into the R&B/funk crates to bring forth – for the first time on CD – the very first 1970 RCA album by Louisville, Kentucky’s The New Birth. From the nude family portrait on the cover to the raw, broad-stroke 10 songs inside, this is the rarest, most coveted album by The New Birth, as it boldly began. Though just one album away from slimming down to the 12-member hit machine most funkateers remember, this original 17-piece assemblage packed a show-stopping soul wallop that could swing from heavy backbeat flips of pop standards like ‘It’s You or No One’ (the group’s very first single) to a red hot rave-up of Rufus Thomas’ ‘Do the Funky Chicken.’”
