On the topic of KOOL AND THE GANG, does anyone have or heard stuff by a group
LIGHTNING ROD? As far as I've heard, they were a collaboration between KOOL
AND THE GANG and some members of THE LAST POETS back in 1973. Has anyone
heard any of their stuff? What's it like? I would expect it to be quite
a mind-blowing group given the collaboration and the year (same year
KOOL AND THE GANG came out with their classic LP "Wild And Peaceful").
