Ohio Players - Unsung

By Mike, 18/05/16

The Ohio Players are one of the most successful funk outfits of all time, scoring monster crossover hits in the 1970s like "Fire" and "Love Rollercoaster." They took funk into uncharted territory, bringing a jazzy, free form feel to chart-toppers like "Skin Tight," "Heaven Must Be Like This," and "Sweet Sticky Thing." Along the way, The Players — with monikers like Sugarfoot, Diamond, and Rock– lived up to their names, with super-sexy album covers that got nearly as much attention as their songs, and by lifestyle excesses that led to a major drug bust. Their notoriety was so extreme that the group was rumored to have killed someone during a recording session with the dying screams mixed into the grooves of a song.
