Mother's Finest - Mother's Finest

I pride myself on my knowledge of musical obscurities, especially those that relate to my favorite bands. This one, however, slipped by me until this past year. I almost fainted when I came across this album. Most people, myself included, believed that MF's debut album was the self-titled record in 1977 on Epic Records. WRONG! The band actually cut an album several years prior with RCA and believe it or not, it WAS released. So how did it stay invivisible all these years? That's a good question. Thanks to the internet age, it is now something we can share amongst ourselves easily. To my knowledge, it's the exact same lineup from the mid 70's, but it does sound vastly different. Rooted more firmly in soul, "Mother's Finest" is low on heavy rock and high on smooth jams. Download and make your own judgement. I normally do not post anything under 192kbps, but since this is the best I have, I'll post it anyway. Check it!

Ronnie: I love your blog! Any chance you can upload the other Mother's Finest S/T or No Prisoners by OZZ?

Why can't we access this file?

This file has said "temporarily unavailable" for a long time. Is it ever going to be fixed? And how about posting some other Mother's Finest? They have other albums that have never been on CD. Thanks. Your site rocks.

does anyone have a higher bit rate version of this?

Also looking for the Like A Negro CD ep since it has exclusive tracks...
