Music Makers Band - You Can Be 2xLP
Label: Now Again
Release Date: December 11th, 2020
Tucked in the back corner of a linen closet in Macon, Georgia since 1979 sat a box that very few people knew existed. Lost and presumed forgotten, this box contained reel-to-reel tapes of the lost album by the band that issued the lauded Black Gold as The Mighty Chevelles in 1977. By 1979, while transitioning to the name Music Makers Band, the band entered Capricorn Studios and recorded this previously-unreleased disco funk opus, finally issued as You Can Be as part of the Now-Again Reserve series.
Nearly all songs have been remixed from the original multi-track masters by Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez. Georgia funk and soul historian Brian Poust details the band in an oversized booklet.
