Deloris Riley - Hey, Boy!
I'M BACK! I've temporarily rigged it so I can make posts again, I don't know how long it will last but hopefully until I can afford to buy a new computer or get my broken one fixed.
To make up for my prolonged absence I'm bringing you a true rarity. Rare in the record collecting world is a subjective concept: some base it on monetary value and others base it on whether a record or song is truly scarce. I believe this Deloris Riley record is a true rarity as it I've never seen another copy of it, don't know anyone else that has it, and to my knowledge, it's never been sold on eBay.
It's a totally killer New Orleans funk track, I'm guessing '70 here. Publishing rites belong to none other than Joe Banashak. I can't find any information other than that. I don't know who Deloris Riley was/is or if she had any other records and I don't know who Justin James was/is. Regardless, the song is an all out, low-down, filthy, wah-infected funk jam. Deloris' voice is killer too!
Hope y'all enjoy. I'll try and be back tomorrow with another tune.
