Mississippi's own General Crook with his self-titled album from '74 on Wand Records. Crook was signed to Capital records at the age of 24, but was unable to make any waves until he signed to Down to Earth Records and reached #22 on the R&B charts in '70 with "Gimme Some." This is hands down one of the best album covers of all time, check his general's coat and hat while drinking out of a chalice with no pants on. Dope. Highlights include "Fever In The Funkhouse" and "Reality." The General is able to bring the funk while also singing some great soul burners, here's the album. I'm also throwing in the track "Do It For Me" as a bonus.
