Purple Image

Whelp, prepare to get your mind blown. Purple Image's S/T release from '70 is a heavy psych/funk/soul crasher that defies all convention during the early 70's. Purple Image somehow combines the raw funk of Parliament, the distorted guitar of Jimi and the smooth harmony of the Stylistics into their one and only album. Here's the whole album below, but check out "Living In The Ghetto" if you're skeptical...
