DOWNLOAD: Stacy Lane - No Ending
Charles 'Packy' Axton is one of those soul legends that you only know if you dig deep. Then, once you find him, he's everywhere. A bandleader and tenor saxophonist, Axton, whose mother and uncle were founders of the legendary record label Stax, lead many unimpeachable funk and soul sessions, but remained largely unnoticed until recently receiving the compilation treatment with Late Late Party 1965-67. Here's a sample cut: the unfettered funk of Stacy Lane's "No Ending." Funk this soulful and seamless sounds nearly impossible to create nowadays. It's so natural, it's like the song was plucked from the ground after growing for the last half-century. Grab Late Late Party 1965-67 now on Light In The Attic.
