Back On Vinyl for the First Time Since 1973!
Donald Austin's first (and only) album Crazy Legs was originally released in 1973 on Eastbound Records. It's a collection of psychedelic funk instrumentals every bit as physical and wild as its title portends. The muscular grooves that galvanize all 13 of the album's brief but memorable tracks are relatively unique within the Eastbound catalog, they are relentless and the playing is top-notch. Also included on this amazing record are two Funkadelic covers, perfectly performed in Austin's unique style. The record was produced by funk veteran Bernie Mendelson (Funkadelic, Ceasar Frazier, Melvin Sparks) and mastering duties were handled by Howard Craft who worked with such legends as Al Green, Syl Johnson, and Isaac Hayes. Also worth mentioning is the fantastic cover art designed by Neil Terk (known for his work with Cymande, Muddy Waters, Dire Straits, Funkadelic, Grace Jone). Super rare and fetching large sums on the collectors market, Crazy Legs is finally back on vinyl for the first time in 45 years!
