Platypus CD discography In an ideal world, any musician or singer who has talent would be able to make a good living at it. But we don't live in an ideal world and, every year, worthwhile bands fall through the cracks. In the late 1970s one such band was Platypus, a funk-disco unit that couldn't get arrested, and its lack of commercial success is regrettable because this is a decent debut. Released in 1979, Platypus has one foot in funk (in some cases, funk-rock) and the other in disco. The Ohio Players and Parliament/Funkadelic are prominent influences, but tracks like "Body and Soul," "Love the Way You Funk," and the opener "Dancing in the Moonlight" have a lot more disco gloss than one expected from either of those bands. At times, Platypus incorporates rock elements, especially on "Street Babies." One thing that separates this LP from a lot of 1970s funk efforts is its complete absence of horns -- many of that decade's funk bands were famous for their killer horn sections. But the Isley Brothers were a major exception, and the same goes for Platypus. This enjoyable, if imperfect, LP (which was the band's only album) didn't stay in print for very long. But it's worth hearing if, by some chance, a hard-to-find copy can be tracked down. ~ Alex Henderson Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this self-titled album from the legendary Funk band. Platypus was among many Funk-based acts to emerge from Dayton, Ohio in the 1970s, along with the Ohio Players, Heatwave, Slave, and Lakeside. Their style was specifically influenced by progressive rock, earning compliments from Rick Wakeman of Yes. The group's fans in Japan defined their sound as "between rock and soul." Upon moving to Los Angeles in the mid-'70s, members of Platypus worked with Motown producer Hal Davis and contributed to sessions for Thelma Houston, The 5th Dimension, and Diana Ross. Platypus was mentored by Roberta Flack after she saw the group headline at The Bottom Line in Osaka, Japan. Liner Note Author: Christian John ...
