Various Home Schooled: The ABC's of Kid Soul
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Numero Group
Patrizia & Jimmy have a message: "Listen, parents everywhere... You can trust your child." Delivered over a hard Hammond groove, these li'l 'uns make a big case-the permission-slip bracket of late '60s and early '70s soul brothers and sisters had something going on. In the wake of the Jackson 5, parents all over America shoved their offspring into the studio, and the Smithsonian of Soul-the Numero Group-has dug up the finest results for Home Schooled. Some of it's ridiculous (like Little Murray's ballad "Don't Leave Me Mama"), but hearing Cindy & The Playmates talk about report cards the way Diana Ross might describe heartache-is an entire DJ genre developing before our eyes.
