Funk's answer to the Five Blind Boys of Alabama, Florida's Montgomery Express stood at the crossroadsof politically conscious soul and mystically awakeneddance music. Comprised of two blind musicians intheir 20s and a teenage rhythm section, their lone LPwas cut in 1972 for Orlando's Dove label, then reissuedon Folkways two years later. Although the label usuallysteered clear of soul music and anything remotelycommercial sounding, Montgomery Express tapped intoFolkways? Guthrie-cum-Chamber Bros. Nerve.?My whole life, I heard music in the air, beautiful music.I?ve been involved in supernatural things, spoken withspirits. I have heard an orchestra up in the air. I knowI?ve heard it.? ?Paul Montgomery.
