My Hang Up Is You (GSF Recordings, Inc. 1973) is an example of exquisite background harmonizing, a distinct lead vocalist, and a fine arrangement.
The group has resleased only one album, Skull Snaps, which is in high demand nowadays for all kinds of sampling. Skull Snaps is definitely a group whose Funk is heavily laced with Soul. I like this kind of modified Funk.
Before they became the Skull Snaps, the group called itself The Diplomats and already had released a number of successful singles.
