Waterloo Records

50th Anniversary Edition of the classic sophomore album by D.C.-based Funk and Go-Go legends, The Soul Searchers. Originally released in 1974 by Sussex Records, Salt of the Earth spotlights the Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown, on gritty funk jams "Blow Your Whistle" and "Funk to the Folks." The instrumental "Ashley's Roachclip" features perhaps the most sampled drum break in history, instantly recognizable as the basis for genre-spanning hits by Run-D.M.C., Duran Duran, Milli Vanillli, Ice Cube, Mick Jagger, P.M. Dawn, New Order, Eric B. & Rakim, EMF, LL Cool J, and many, many more. Beyond it's grooves, the album surprises with the tender balladry of "We Share" and a soulful rendition of Bacharach and David's "Close to You." This first-ever U.S. CD reissue of the highly influential Salt of the Earth features new liner notes by Justin Richmond (Wax Poetics).
