Eccentric Soul

A Red Black & Green Production

While not manning knobs and faders for Gil Scott-Heron, Hugh Masekela, Soul Searchers, Van McCoy, and a host of major label also-rans at Edgewood Studios, Washington, D.C.’s most opulent recording facility, producer Robert Hosea Williams worked off-hours at his own scrappy headquarters—the basement of his parents’ suburban Silver Springs home on Octagon Road. Out of those cramped quarters came the underground sounds collected here. A Red Black & Green Production is the story of a well-connected engineer whose cabal of Beltway talent surreptitiously produced the finest black music coming out of D.C. during the midsection of the 1970s. Though Red Black & Geen’s Garvey-colored flag flew behind the scenes, like a shadow government it changed D.C. recording culture and influenced the coming D.I.Y. movement. Featuring a balance of issued and unissued work by Skip Mahoney & the Casuals, Fathers Children, the Summits, Promise, Dyson’s Faces, and East Coast Connection, these 19 creamy tracks cruise through soaring falsettos, luminous harmonies, and sweeping strings, all cultivated from pristine original master tapes.
