It's been nearly fifteen years since the vinyl-only releases by the various ensembles helmed by Jay and Max Whitefield; also known as the Whitefield Brothers, and the nucleus of the revered Poets of Rhythm; were collated onto an Original Raw Soul album. The last 1997's More Original Raw Soul, largely contained the duo's heavy funk and soul. Well before the aughts' Deep Funk revival that one could argue began with these two German siblings' earliest recordings.

Their latest, “Original Raw Soul III”, contains sixteen tracks that span the gamut of forty years of musical innovation recorded over the past twenty years, presented anew today. Contains two previously unreleased songs by The Transgressors, which are released on a limited edition 7" single with original label-art by Lewis Heriz.
