Five years since our initial CD release, Eccentric Soul: Mighty Mike Lenaburg finally makes it back to its intended format as a deluxe double LP. This 180 gram “Loaded To The Gills” edition features 10 bonus tracks, scores of new photographs, and new liner notes, all housed in a heavy gatefold jacket. Eccentric Soul: Mighty Mike Lenaburg chronicles Phoenix, Arizona’s off-”Funky Broadway” scene that happened while Dyke and his Blazers were setting national charts on fire in the late ‘60s/early ‘70s. Covering Tejano psych, flute funk, both horny soul and horny kid soul, cackling R&B, deep ballads, and fist-fight doo-wop, Lenaburg channeled that wrong side of the desert sound to a dozen 45s for the Mighty, Darlene, Homogenized Sound, Ramco, and Out of Sight imprints. Although listing these totally obscure groups is an exercise in futility, we’ve typed them out anyway; Michael Liggins, the Super Souls, We The People, Ronnie Whitehead, Small Paul, the Soulsations, Lon Rogers, the Soul Blenders, Sheila Jack, Clarence Townes, and the Newlyweds.
