Stu Gardner and the Sanctified Sound

Don't call it a comeback. But yeah, it's been a while. Anyway, here's a funk and soul album from singer-organ/piano/clavinet player Stu Gardner. Released on Volt (Stax) in 1974. For some backstory on Stu, check out this or that. This album has a couple of players in common with the Charles Wright LP I posted some time ago, namely Charles Wright himself, who contributes with some guitar and drummer James Gadson.
I found one of the tracks up on youtube.
  1. Devil In A Man
  2. Added To A Broken Heart
  3. Funky Neighborhood
  4. Home On The Range
  5. Mathilda (Instrumental)
  6. Sanctified Sound
  7. Sister Matilda
  8. Leave Him Alone
  9. The Sweetest Song
  10. The Sweetest Song (Part II)

Thanks for the comments all... and hopefully you won't have to wait five months for the next one. But no promises!

How about some Montego Joe? I'll look around to see if it's been posted somewhere...
