Panic Buttons - O-Wow




In honor of my man DJ Prestige of Flea Market Funk fame and his upcoming "Asbury Park 45 Sessions" Jan. 18th and my Philly/Upper Darby gal pal JJB and her Eye Eat Music web blog i bring you some early Philly Funk via "O-Wow" from the "Panic Buttons" on Gamble records. This was released 1st on "Chalom" records which was right in Upper Darby PA. I'm hoping that one day being as i spend a bunch of time in good old U.D. i may come across a first pressing but for now dig the re-issue from Gamble.

Regardless of what label this is on what we have here is a charging little funk diddy from 1968. Banging horns and some sweet & funky guitar playing. This is guaranteed to wake you up this dreary and wet, but warm morning here on the East Coast...

O-Wow!

I actually interviewed Lou Lupo, the man behind the Panic Buttons, a couple of years ago.
