Home Cookin'

Last weekend was the 45s and 78s only show in Allentown, and after a quiet start to 2006, I managed to pick up a number of 45s that I had been after. One of them was the 45 featured tonight, The Trend's "Home Cookin'" on Capital. Before I say anything about this track, have a listen here. Heavy on the horns, and it moves at a breakneck pace for the entire tune. Later on, the sax gets a solo & then other horns come in and play various lines, seeming to weave in and out of each other, which is a nice effect. Then the horns pull back and let the organ have some over the drums and the guitar. Then the horns crash in, and they're back to the original theme to take it on home.......

It seems alot of collectors solely chase independent releases, but hard-hitting funk sides on major labels always make me curious and leave me wondering. Throw-away side? I don't think so.

Found two 45's by these guys at Goodwill last week, including this one. The other three songs are unremarkable pop, making this winner seem to come out of nowhere. Ya just never know.
