Whatnauts and the Whatnauts Band 45
What and the Whatnauts do a cover of "Message from a Black Man" on the A side and "Dance to the Music" on the flip. A&I Records #001. A trio from Baltimore 1970. "Message...." is done pretty much as the original. Not bad, but not breaking any new ground.
Outstanding FUZZ guitar on "dance to the music". Full instrumental workout. Bass player steps it up. Definitely the winner on this single. The flipside is the killer on the release. A classic emreges like a phoenx from the ashes of a throw away B-side.
