Ohio Players – The Millennium Collection – CD
(Universal Records) I first heard of the Ohio Players while working in college radio and the janitor told us he use to be in a band that was big in the ’70s called Ohio Players. I didn’t know if he was telling the truth or not, but who am I to doubt him. In fact, most people of my generation wouldn’t even know who the Ohio Players were if it wasn’t for the Red Hot Chili Peppers cover of their hit “Love Rollercoaster”. (He told us before the Red Hot’s had covered the tune). They are to Funk what Iggy Pop is to punk. The best testimonial for the greatness of a band is by how many other musicians and artists they influence. Just listening to this CD and you can tell just by listening the myriad of greats that they influences, with Red Hot Chili Peppers being an obvious. This is one of those bands that you would be doing yourself a great service by picking up this release. Then you can let the party begin. {Mite}
