Black Heat - The Jungle Pt. I

Maybe not anywhere near as rare or as funky as The Black Truth Band this 45 still packs a funky wallop! This is a promo copy with the flip being the mono version.

Black Heat was a 1970s funk band founded by King Raymond Green and discovered by Phillip Guilbeau. Their albums include Black Heat (with guest artist David "Fathead" Newman), No Time To Burn and Keep On Runnin'. The group had one hit single, "No Time to Burn", which reached #46 on the U.S. Billboard Black Singles chart.
