Gordon 'N' Rogers The Inter-Urban Electric A & E Pit Crew And Rhythm Band - Bug-In! [1969]



Kelly Gordon and Shorty Rogers collaborated on a couple of funky rarities in the late sixties. Gordon's 1969 masterpiece ‘Defunked’ is oneand this wild obscurity credited to the ‘Inter-Urban Electric A&E Pit Crew And Rhythm Bandis the otherjumping on the Califor-nia dune buggie wave of the 60's, the chicks-cars-surf-gogo themed gatefold cover gives a first hint of the treasure inside. the funk is really tuned up to the max here on this action packed studio session! the stricly instrumental tracks have 'a groove that is impossible to stop, add fluid scorching solo horns against firecracker chunk-a-funk electric guitar, fender bass, electric piano, drums, funky reverberated flutes and I think even some conga drum.' (Jack Diamond) the excellent, tight horn section delivers infectious, ultra-funky rhythms with a sleazy, very early 70s sound, strongly reminding of some Tom Scott & the L.A. express session from the same time. in between mixed you can hear roaring motor sounds (just like Michel Legrand's 'Le Mans' OST) producing incredibly funky effects you can almost see the buggys wheelin' and jumpin' over sand dunes. a highly recommended and throughout consistent Capitol release, and a rare one too as it’s not listed in any soundtrack guide. the all killer, no filler-tracklist includes titles like 'Glitterbag', 'Spyder Bug', 'The Manx Meets The Bronco', 'Boss Bug', 'Wampuskitty' or 'Mini T'. all that's left to say is: bug in!, turn on!, drop out! and get down! to the inter-urban electric grooves of Gordon N Rogers!
