Fricke’s Picks: Harvey Scales’ Funk

December 4th, 2009 by David Fricke Leave a reply »

Two of my favorite supersoul tracks of 1967 came on the same single by Wisconsin’s Harvey Scales and the Seven Sounds: “Get Down,” a high-speed-James Brown blast that got to Number 79 on Billboard, and its hot-ardor flip, “Love-Itis,” later covered by the J. Geils Band. New collection Love-Itis (Soul-Tay-Shus) has ‘em both with a dance party’s worth of obscure pulverizing follow-ups, including “Broadway Freeze,” “Trackdown,” “The Yolk” and the improbably wicked “Funky Football.”
