The Elements

You Know It's Funky/ Crosstown Shuffle

Black Vinyl

7" Vinyl Single Record

Product Details
Soul-Jazz guitar legend Melvin Sparks (R.I.P March 22, 1946 - March 13, 2011) joined "The Elements" in the studio in 2005. "The Elements" were the first backing band for the record label and this record is the first record ever released on Element Records. The label took a plunge for a few years before getting back and going again in early 2010, and is now re-releasing this single.

The B-side features guest saxophonist Cochemea Gastelum known for his recent work with Sharon Jones & The Dapkings, Amy Winehouse, Robert Walter, Melvin Sparks & Reuben Wilson to name just a few.

This record is raw and shows the very early developing stages of the record label and early performances from current day musicians still associated with the label including guitarist Scott Clayton and organist/producer Spencer Garn.
