Ernie Hines - Electrified LP


Ernie Hines' 1972 funk rarity Electrified was recorded for Stax's We Produce subsidiary and has pretty much been long sought-after by DJs and tastemakers alike ever since. Hines had been signed to the label by Al Bell on the recommendation of the publisher of Jet magazine. The album is a fantastic piece of southern soul, with a couple of funk tracks, including "Our Generation," a politically-edged call to arms, that became a sensation when it was sampled by Pete Rock on his hip-hop classic "Let's Straighten It Out." Most recently, "Our Generation" was in the spotlight again in 2010 when John Legend and The Roots covered it on their collaborative album Wake Up! Available on vinyl for the first time since its original release, Ernie Hines' Electrified is a must-have slab for all funk & soul fanatics!
