180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!
Numbered, Limited Edition Turquoise Vinyl - 750 Copies!

The singer, pianist and guitarist Charles Wright led one of the great funk groups of the late '60s and early '70s, the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band. They were originally known as the Soul Runners. Drummer James Gadson and guitarist Al McKay, who later joined Earth, Wind & Fire, were among the instrumental corps of the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band.

Their finest selection was "Express Yourself," a song that expressed the urge for freedom. It has also been among the most sampled funk tracks for hip-hop and rap groups such as N.W.A., Kurtis Blow, and Fu-Schnickens. "Express Yourself" featured on their 1970 same-titled album, which also contained the critically acclaimed and popular ballad "Love Land."

Express Yourself is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on turquoise colored vinyl.

The quintessential Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band record, Express Yourself displays the purposefully loose rhythms and shout vocals that would make this band a legend in soul circles. Every track on this album is a classic...Express Yourself is '70s soul at its most creative and satisfying.
