Shortly after that they added Pam Tanner, Henry Leon Miles and Ron Hedricks to complete the original Funk Campaign.

Maggtapp

“Because you’re you” /“Love I lost”

Label: The Preservation Project – Catalog: PP011 – Release Date: 30th July 2021 – Format: 7′

We are back with two Soul sides for you for our 11th regular 7″ release.

Both are a perfect fit for the Soul scene. Side A features Maggtapp’s previously unreleased “Because You’re You.” This is a strong female vox lead sublime Modern Soul groover. It features a steady beat and a spacious arrangement – just drums, bass, electric piano, and organ – that lets the vocals float on top of it. It definitely could be a demo or a temporary mix down, as it could be a bit more fleshed out, but it is really quite good as is.

There was very little information about Kenyatta, the band that recorded the well-known and in-demand funk killer track: Kick It Off. In 2017, I started to research the band extensively, originally I believed Kenyatta was from Toledo, Ohio.
