    After recording the SHAFT soundtrack as Isaac Hayes' backing band, the Bar Kays released this album


    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Save for few exceptions which are rather funky e.g. Magma and elephant9, I like 70's jazz funk a lot more than prog rock. You're free to stone me if you want to.

    That Pleasure album is so excellent! People might knock it because the production is so super clean (and there really wasn't enough bottom end) but every song on that album slays (except Thinking About Old Flames) Killer Guitar solos abound!

    There is some weird stuff listed here. Soviet and Polish funk? Mind blown.

    How about some Parliament Funkadelic? Some of it is a bit proggy, no?

    Here is a cool interview with progressive Funk-Rock Guitarist DeWayne “Blackbyrd” McKnight https://nafme.org/dewayne-blackbyrd-mcknight/

    A lot of it is. I do believe there’s more than a touch of Zappa influence there. A lot of it is also weird, and weird + 70s = proggy.

    LGCS is well known, but RS, I didn't know of.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    How's about something from 2019 but sounds like it could have been in a chase scene from a 70's blaxploitation flick. Can you dig it!

    Didn't recall this being funkier than Alphosne Mouzon's 1974 python boots...but it probably is.
