"The final -- and most exciting -- installment in Now Again Records' LAMP reissue series -- a trawl through the funk catalog of Indianapolis's most prolific soul and funk label of the 60s and 70s. The music has been remastered from the analog master tapes and the band's history has been annotated and culled into extensive liner notes. 'Soul Heart Transplant', the title cut of the anthology, is fitting. The Band couldn't help but transplant their Meters-inspired, psychedelic grooves onto not only their original compositions but also onto any funky tunes from the day. As such, groups like The Doors, Blood Sweat and Tears and Cream all receive a heavy funk workout via the Ebony Rhythm Band. This CD runs the gamut from superb, psychedelic funk to backbeat-grounded, heavy funk."
