Amazing Teenaged Funk/Rock/Soul Hybrid From the ’70s Bay Area

The Two Things In One is a band that by all rights should have been huge. The talented, soulful quintet, with an average age of 16 at the time these tracks were recorded, blended Stevie Wonder-like vocals alongside The Meters, and James Brown-inspired grooves transforming their music into deeply funky workouts. Members would go on to later play with Tower of Power (lead vocalist Michael Jeffries sang with Tower of Power during the late ’70s and early ’80s), Maze, Sly & The Family Stone, among other notable groups of the era.

Produced in full cooperation with the band, Together Forever: The Music City Sessions gives props to an unheralded yet remarkably talented quintet. Pulling together the band’s recording output during their 1971-1973 stretch on the Bay Area based Music City label, Together Forever: The Music City Sessions includes the band’s three local hit singles, “Silly Song,” “Together Forever,” and “Over Dose (Of Your Love),” alongside two unlikely cover choices of the Allman Brothers’ “Dreams” and CSNY’s “Ohio.”
