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!
