ATTENTION EARTHLINGS.....ATTENTION EARTHLINGS...
WE ARE FROM THE PLANET FRUITION,
WE ARE THE NATURAL FRUIT OF THE UNIVERSE,
WE WILL PLANT OUR SEED WITHIN YOU,
AND YOU SHALL GROW AND GROW.........
If you feel it, say yeah. This album is worth it for the that track alone. An insanely infectious groove and a call to action that can help get the whole room lettin loose. The record certainly doesn't stop there--all sorts of tracks to freak you out. For goodness sakes, this is unreleased, untamed, unadulterated FLORIDA FUNK.
The Fruit Band's fleeting existence was only recently revealed by the discovery of a few unsold copies of their sole 1978 single,Say It, which quickly became a cult showpiece for savvy DJs and collectors. Athens of the North has since reached out to Cypress Studios of Jacksonville, Florida and discovered a complete album of the group's stylish, dancefloor-smashing funk and deep disco on tape, unreleased for over 30 years. Vinyl is presented in a Handmade cardboard Tip-On Sleeve as would have been used at the time as only the best will do.
