Napoleon Murphy Brock was discovered by Frank Zappa in 1972 whil playing R&B covers at a Waikiki, Hawaii nightclub. A few months later, Brock was in Zappa’s band and stayed on for four years, after which he put together a group called Gregarious Movement. This live recording from 1977 captures Napi’s band doing what they did best - putting their own imprint on soul classics.
Greg Russo's original songs, along with a cover of a lesser-known Dylan tune (If You Gotta Go, Go Now), are realized by musicians connected to the music of Frank Zappa. The result is a CD full of stellar performances and highly melodic songs, with real people playing real instruments - remember those days?
