AVAILABLE AGAIN!!! For almost 45 years a complete album by VIC PITTS & THE CHEATERS has been forgotten, waiting until now to be released. In the late 1960s, Vic Pitts & The Cheaters were one of Milwaukee's top R&B bands. They had their own TV show (for 3 years), played some of the city's biggest clubs, and backed up big name acts. Between 1969 and 1970 they recorded over a dozen songs with producer ANDRE WILLIAMS at Chess' Ter-Mar Studios in Chicago. The results show why they were such a popular live act; some tracks reveal their roots as James Brown fanatics, others relate the happening sounds of Sly & The Family Stone and Chicago's first record. Highlights include an early instrumental version of their sought after "Loose Boodie," a funky cover of Herbie Mann's "Comin' Home Baby," and a soulful re-imagining of Neil Young's "Down By The River," among many others. But, as misfortune would have it, the album never saw the light of day. Now Secret Stash proudly presents the first issue of these previously unreleased soulful and funky tapes. Culled from interviews with Vic Pitts and several members of the band we have put together a LP gatefold filled with photos and liner notes, and a CD with 8 page booklet.
