I was browsing the stacks at the Electric Fetus records in Minneapolis when some particularly funky rock came over their Polk Audio Monitor 10's.  My first thought was that this was a new collaboration between the Black Keys and (*insert rapper here*) re: Blakroc, but I found out that it was something much more obscure.

MFSB, or Muthafunkinsonofabitch for the layman, was a group of rotating session musicians in Philadelphia's recording studios during the 60's and 70's.  There's so little written down about this ensemble because they only convened to record 45's that were never released officially.

It's safe to say the music on this CD is something of a rarity.  While the timbre of the music has enjoyed a renaissance lately, I think it's very good to have the source material close at hand.
