about

Funky Delicacies' program of New Orleans funk reissues by the likes of The Gaturs, Eddie Bo and others have shown that there is no place on the planet where more phenomenal seventies funk was lost than the city of New Orleans. We have reaffirmed this truth with the release of Chuck Simmons' "Hustler's Strut". Simmons in and of himself was a modest Alvin Cash type bandleader, a guy whose moans, grunts and groans punctuated a funky groove. But he had a connoisseur's taste for songwriters, arrangers and producers. This album was produced almost in its entirety by the brilliant Wardell Quezerque and many tracks resonate with the same brilliance that propelled much bigger hits like Jean Knight's "Mr. Big Stuff" and King Floyd's "Groove Me." Funky breakdowns, breakbeats and riffs galore for every kind of funk fan from the DJ to the listener to the dancer.
