Good lawd, that's funky! Leave it to Numero Group to dig up yet another round of grade school talent show titans that have been lost in obscurity. The 123s Of Kid Soul follows up their acclaimed Homeschooled compilation with a fresh selection of incredible funk jams from talented musicians who probably weren't even able to drive at the time of recording. From Numero - "With enterprising parents, neighbors, and teachers turning play dates into recording dates, groups like Magical Connection, Little Man and the Inquires, and Five Ounces of Soul emulated the Jacksons, who'd made grade-school stardom appear easy as ABC." Check the samples, as the sounds really speak for themselves! Includes tracks from Bethlehem Children's Choir, Future Kind, Brighter Side Of Darkness, Jimi Hill, The Dynamics, The Mighty Mustangs, Cash, and many others. 19 tracks (including an amazing cover of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised") on double vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve complete with colorful booklet lending insight to the bands featured on this collection.
