- Artist: Park & Happy Mayfield
- Format: 7" Single
- Release Date: 5/22/2012
The latest release from acclaimed Bay Area rhythm section The Park takes you on a ride back in time with Soul Legend Darondo at the wheel of his 1965 white Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. The Park and Happy Mayfield present Silver Cloud Time Machine, a white 7" vinyl bringing together two generations of Bay Area Funk. Darondo, a Soul legend whose three singles released in the early 1970's have become high on the must-have lists of many collectors, and The Park, who have made a name for themselves as the go-to backing band of the west coast (Alice Russell, Big K. R. I. T. , Freddie Gibbs, Jesse Boykins III, Grillade) put down some high energy Funk that will make you think you are "Burnin' up" on the dance floor of an early 70's Bay Area club. Throw Lee Bob Watson into the mix (Happy Mayfield) and Darondo has found his partner in crime as Lee Bob and "Rolls Royce" Darondo come together for the up-tempo James Brown style duet, "Jesse James" on the B side. Is Darondo's Silver Cloud Rolls Royce a time machine? Or is Bay Area Funk music just timeless? You decide.
