*PREORDER* The Fatback Band – Yum Yum – Southbound UK LP

18.75

Formed by drummer Bill Curtis in 1970 the Fatback band started off as a funk band although when disco began to break in 1974, they added that four to the floor wrinkle to their sound to serve up some classics. In 1975 Fatback released both their 5th and 6th LPs – “Yum Yum” and “Raising Hell” – in the same year. Although singles had been released Stateside as early as 1971, it was not until 1975 that Fatback began to appear on singles here. Their third UK 7” – ‘Yum Yum (Gimme Some)’ – got to number 40 in the UK charts in August. Later in November, ‘Are You Ready (To Do The Bus Stop)’ got to number 18 which helped propel the “Raising Hell” LP into the top 20. This album also spawned the Top 10 hit ‘Spanish Hustle’ in early 1976. Both “Yum Yum” and “Raising Hell” have been out of print on vinyl for decades. These new editions allow funky Fatback fans to drop the needle and get back into the groove.
