There are two distinct periods in the history of the funk band Fatback.
In the early 1970's, The Fatback Band, as they were known released their music on the Perception Records label.
Their raw, funky sound could be compared to most early Kool & The Gang.
Their CD was an obvious addition to my music collection allowing me to have their early singles in one place.
At some point in the late 1970s, the band renamed as Fatback.
Their sound become more synthesized in the same vein as their contemporaries like Cameo, The Dazz Band and Parliament.
