The Gap Band – Not Guilty

Taken from The Gap Band’s first self-titled album released in 1977, Not Guilty/Knucklehead Funkin’/Listen to the Music is great early Gap Band funk. Synths are not as prominent as they would be later, but these three songs have a lot of what made The Gap Band a very popular funk band in the late 70’s/early 80’s. I found this promo release for $1, and not having been able to find a lot of other Gap Band records I scooped it up. Nice little record, but not as good as the music the Wilson brothers would later make.
