Thank you so much for spotlighting this group. I used to listen to them in the late 60s and the early 70s. Their sound was an intoxication of funkieness. I still jam their sounds today, enjoying and groving to their sounds.

On the first Watts 103 Street Band LP Charles Wright was not the Band Leader and if he appeared he shurely had a minor Funk-tion. It was the Producers Band. (Fred Smith) (W 1741 or WS 1741)

He and the most members of the Band appeared on somer Singles by Dyke and the Blazers.
Charles played Guitar in the wonderful funky Bluesway Sessions 67/68 by Roy Brown released in 1973 by ABC and rereleased by Charly 1988 in Europe (UK).
The Inside Fold-off of Charles first Solo-Record (2LP) “Doing what comes naturally” (Dunhill/ABC) was the Blueprint for the Cover of the Beastie Boys Pauls Boutique.
Over here in Switzerland “High as Apple Pie Slices 1 & 2” were slacker cult for People who wanted du chill after a long and sweaty party.
(No we didn’t err hey we’re Swiss *chuckle* our Grass is is reserved for our Milkcows)

Good Site! Keep on truckin’!
