Jerry Wilson "I Like The Music / Everybody Spread A Little Love" (Dusk & Dawn)

Danville's own Jerry Wilson got his start as a vocalist for the integrated Soulmasters band in the mid 60's. The Soulmasters played the beaches of Virgina and the Carolinas, local Coke bottling plants, drive-ins, just about anywhere they could get a gig, and in 1967 released what is now a highly sought after 45. At some point in the 70's Jerry took off from southside Virginia and ended up in the DC metro area where he met up with the great Al Johnson (of "Peaceful" fame) and recorded this nice piece of disco soul.

Hi Funky Virginia,

Unbelievable! This is one of the most outrageous and beautiful things I've heard in quite some time. I'm always searching for obscure & rare boogie and disco. This probably takes the prize, however. Usually, the hidden funky gems come from '78 to '81; this is back in '76. Fabulous! Thank you for posting; you're a life saver.

Peace, Jerome
