Eddie Russ- See The Light / Take a Look At Yourself

Timely re-issue on Soul Brother records (it's going to save me some money) of two albums from 70's Jazz funk musician Eddie Russ.

See The Light contains Zaius which is a big fave with the old school jazz-funkers. My personal choice is the title track of Take a Look At Yourself

This album also contains the rare groove classic I Heard That
