Product Details


Color Him Father was the only LP released by The Winstons, an amazing and surprisingly influential funk/soul group out of Washington, D.C. They originally formed as the backing band for now-forgotten singer Wayne Lagadeece, and when they were given the last-minute opportunity to play on their own, they named themselves after the brand of cigarette that leader Richard Spencer smoked. Their single "Color Him Father" cracked the top 10 in 1969 (and won the Grammy for "Best R&B Song") and the b-side, "Amen, Brother" is arguably the most sampled song of all time. Both of these cuts appear on their album, along with more than a dozen other slabs of solid funk - including two non-lp a-sides. Remastered in 2011, The Winstons never sounded so good!
