Stump Juice: Presents: Alvin Davis & Friends, Unknown/Alvin Davis, Hustlers of Culture, Nuyorican Soul/Alvin Dvis, Yound Disciples/Moose & Dr Funk and more.
Searching through my archives during another digitsing session, I came across this gem.
This is the first appearance of Alvin Davis & his collaborators the MC's Moose & Dr Funk.
This was also one of the earliest recordings from Stump Juice, only a few months after we opened.
Those who remember can attest to the fun we all had back then.
Alvin has forged a successful career, particularly Stateside, where he has made a number of high profile appearances on US TV.
We were lucky as they almost didn't make it; traffic breakdowns & technical problems seemed to be against all of us.
The sound quality probably isn't as good as usual, but I'm sure the energy & vibe more than comes across, making up for it.
From the improvising of Alvin over our instrumental selections to dropping breaks for the MCs to do their thing, this captures the spirit of the club & what we did.
We were so into we forgot to turn the tape over!
