School Me! Volume One 1968-1975 [coll] – [Stage Band Research]
The subtitle “High School and Collegiate Jazz, Funk, Soul and Psychedelia” sums it up, although to my ear the strongest leaning is toward funk. Not sure who is involved, but they obviously have been scavenging for recordings of high school bands from this period of time and have pulled out some gems. While some tracks have that obvious high school big ensemble sound, quite a few are stand outs including a stunning vocal on Side Four Track 1 for Compared to What and some nice guitar on Side Four Track 2.
Intro (Side One Track 1) and Outro (Side Four Track 4) put us back in the right setting with the teacher’s shouted directions in the noisy high school gym.
