Bus People Express Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)/South Carolina on 7" Vinyl

Alias of The Poets Of Rhythm!

First released in 1993 as the 2nd single on Hotpie & Candy Records, this long out of print single shows the Soul-Saints, which later became The Poets of Rhythm, at their most raw and funky. Inspired by a Greyhound bus trip Bo and JJ took on Christmas Eve '91 from New York to New Orleans, these sessions were originally demo recordings for their first Poets of Rhythm LP Practice What You Preach.

The A-side, "Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)" is a blazing funk masterpiece that has even the most discerning funk enthusiast clambering for an original copy. The B-side, "South Carolina" was later recorded for Practice What You Preach, but the group agreed that the loose energy present on the original demo couldn't be recreated in the studio.

It was then decided to release the original 4-track cassette recordings as, Bus People Express. Predating any releases as Poets of Rhythm, this was the first of an array of aliases the band would assume in the years to follow. Both sides are also included on the forthcoming Daptone LP, Poets of Rhythm Anthology 1992-2003.
