"Funkist" is considered to be the "missing link" in Bobby Harrison's career - coming as it does between the two legendary bands Freedom and Snafu. Previously only available on vinyl in the US this Angel Air release showcases a bunch of top-notch British rock legends: Micky Moody, (later of Whitesnake), Herbie Flowers (one-time Blue Mink, laid down the classic bass-line on Lou Reed's "Take A Walk On The Wild Side", later with Sky), drummers Ian Paice (Deep Purple) and Clem Cattini (ex-The Tornados), guitarists Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) and Henry McCulloch (Wings, The Grease Band) keyboard player Matthew Fisher (ex-Procol Harum) and vocalist Ray Owen (ex-Juicy Lucy).

Bobby Harrison was one of the original members of Procol Harum, when the group recorded the famous hit single "A Whiter Shade Of Pale". After this he formed Freedom  (SJPCD027 and SJPCD028) and in 1972 recorded "Funkist" with Roger Saunders (guitar) and Walter Monagham (bass).

For lovers of gritty and funky R&B, "Funkist" will not disappoint. It makes up a great trilogy with the Snafu albums also available on Angel Air (SJPCD030 and SJPCD032).
