The Spirit Of Atlanta - The Burning Of Atlanta (1973)

Arguably one of the funkiest albums out there, this is an underground classic. Originally the album was supposed to be the soundtrack to a movie about the burning of Atlanta in 1864, and subsequent rebuilding efforts. Not sure if the movie was ever completed, but thank goodness the album was! I just can't understand why this band and album aren't better known. Not a weak track in the collection, and a real head bobber and foot tapper!
