Remember the Fatback Band? Those dudes put out some tasty records (like this one) during the Golden Age of Funk.
Fatback never crossed over to the pop charts but had a long career anyway... including, in recent years, much time spent in Europe in Japan.
The other night, Fatback played its first New York City gig in 15 years.
Bob Davis of Soul-Patrol.com, a huge Fatback fan, is streaming the band’s entire “Live in Tokyo” CD on his Internet radio station (for RealPlayer).
