Stellar Fungk: The Best of Slave/Steve Arrington
Part of the Dayton, Ohio music scene that gave birth to the Ohio Players, Slave knew how to bring the funk. The horn-powered collective was founded in 1976 by trumpeter Steve Washington and trombonist Floyd Miller, but within a few years, drummer Steve Arrington emerged as frontman; STELLAR FUNGK features highlights of the group's 1970s and '80s output along with choice solo sides from Arrington. The 1994 Rhino set includes such R&B Top 10 singles as “Slide,” “Just a Touch of Love,” “Watching You” and “Snap Shot,” and the compilation made the R&B album chart. STELLAR FUNGK: THE BEST OF SLAVE FEATURING STEVE ARRINGTON returns to stores tomorrow on red vinyl for Black History Month.
