The Premiers

Odex 1711 – Speaking Of You /Funky Monkey

This seems kind of a mismatched sound with Speaking Of You being in an earlier (almost 50s) R&B ballad style but Funky Monkey has a much more funkier groove and is the reason to get this 45.  I don’t know much about this group or record but it was originally released on JOB in Chicago c.1970.  For some reason the Odex release has extra vocals overdubbed.  The Premiers is a pretty generic group name so I’m not sure if they have other 45s.  This group were out of Chicago & led by Eddie Clark.
