The Edwards Generation

The Edwards Generation were a funky family band featuring Chuck Edwards and his four sons.  They would set up a PA and play impromptu concerts for enthusiastic crowds on the streets of San Francisco.  The freewheeling instrumental number Smokin' Tidbits was recorded in their garage for the LP "The Street Thang" which they sold during their performances.  It has great energy, you might even find yourself humming it later in the day, maybe imagining the band playing and dancing and doing cartwheels on a sunny '70s afternoon along Market Street.  The song is available on the excellent recent release "California Funk: Rare 45s from the Golden State."
