Ebony Rhythm Band — Soul Heart Transplant: The LAMP Sessions

One of the first previously-unreleased funk and soul albums issued by Now-Again, way back in 2004. The Ebony Rhythm Band eventually became the rather well known ensemble Ebony Rhythm Funk Campaign.

Gatefold 2 LP with liner notes contained on sleeve; jewel case CD with
