Vic Pitts & the Cheaters were Milwaukee's leading R&B act in the tail end of the '60s, even getting their own TV show between '69 and '72 where they performed musical numbers, skits and interviews in order to encourage kids to stay in school. In 1969 they recorded an album which never saw the light of day, which is unearthed this week by Secret Stash.

It's terrific fun, a mixture of bouncy instrumentals with that great late '60s brass-and-electric guitar sound reminiscent of Booker T & the MGs or one-shot dunebuggy instrumentalists Gordon 'n' Rogers Inter-Urban Electric A&E Pit Crew and Rhythm Band, lively Sly & the Family Stone-inspired funk, and a handful of soulful Sam Cooke-inspired ballads including Cooke's own A Change Is Gonna Come and, more surprisingly, a seven-and-a-half minute slink through Neil Young's 'Down By The River' and a similarly lengthy instrumental funking-up of jazz standard 'Coming Home Baby'. They don't make them like this any more.
