Machine's self-titled album is shrouded in mystery. Supposedly released in 1972

on All Platinum Records, it completely disappeared without a trace and only a few

copies seem to have survived, making it one of the rarest Funk albums on the

planet. The album, only known to a handful of hardcore collectors, fetches prices

in excess of $5000 whenever one turns up on the auction market, which

happened four times in the last twenty years. Consisting of three young session

musicians backing their label mates The Whatnauts, the group display a superb

mix of socially conscious hard-hitting funk and earthy soul, the album is reissued

here in its original artwork and remastered by Colorsound Studio in Paris. It

includes a 2-page insert with new liner notes by Charles Waring.


Nobody seems to have an explanation as to why this elusive album is so rare

fuelling rumours it actually never came out. We will probably never know the full

story of Machine, but Wewantsounds is glad to make up for this injustice and put

this funky gem back into circulation for the pleasure of all the soul and funk
