3 Sharecropper's son, art ?teacher, record store/label owner, Lee Anthony nurtured a Little Rock, Arkansas soul and funk scene that produced the Gap Band, among others. Befriending and learning from Sun's Sam Phillips, Stax's Al Bell, and Hi's Willie Mitchell, Anthony brought homespun sonic experimentalism to the greasy funk of groups like the Leaders and York Wilborn's Psychedelic Six. Crate-diggers DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist still salivate over the 45s collected here.
