With the December ROTM Club pick we salute our pals at Colemine Records in Ohio. The label’s first full-length album was released in 2010–Bread & Butter by The Jive Turkeys. To celebrate that release the label is repressing the album on “turkey gravy brown” vinyl, and that’s exactly what we’re sending your way for the Record of the Month Club this holiday season.
Club Members will be getting a copy the “gravy brown” LP, which is limited to only 1800 copies. These will begin shipping on December 12th or so.
Bread & Butter, the debut of The Jive Turkeys, is nothing but funky, soulful instrumental goodness from start to finish. Bread & Butter clearly established The Jive Turkeys as the initial benchmark for the old-school funk revival in the Midwest. Fans of The Meters, Booker T. & The M.G. s, and the funk revival sound will surely dig what The Jive Turkeys are puttin down!
