An Extra E, Just For Class

Thee Midniters


Not The Midniters, but THEE Midniters. This LA soul band was the bad-ass shit, so step back. This may be the best '60's band you've never heard of in your classic rock radio universe.

There are essentially three types of songs on here. One, you've got your uptempo dance number. Land of a Thousand Dances, etc. You've heard a lot of bands do this, few as well. Then, you've got your belly rubbin' slow dance numbers. Think Temptation 'Bout to Get Me, even though they don't do that one on here. Again, they nail these pitch perfect, although I could have done with a couple less on this comp.

It's the third type that really gets me though. Stuff like Whittier Blvd and Love Special Delivery. On these tracks they slide into a nice Chicano / soul hybrid that NOBODY can touch. The closest I've heard is Charles Wright. If you like him, you'll loooove this stuff.

I got to thinking about this one today watching old SNL reruns last night. They had the Stylistics on in 1975, and they were smooth as ever. But they had this edge to them that was sorta punkish, sorta disrepuatable. It reminded me that doo-wop and old soul had a nastiness to it that has largely been lost. But here, it's found.

Thanks for this TBA, great sounding soul/r n' b. Never heard of these boys before (apart from the many versions of whittier blvd.) so my musical education is continuing apace !
