2018 release. Orgone takes on 13 funk and soul classics! Otis Redding, Funkadelic, The Meters, Aretha Franklin, Betty Wright, and Booker T are just a few of the artists Orgone cover on this mixtape collection with some help from friends as well! Expertly recorded and performed, you could make an argument for some of these being better than the originals, but we'll suffice it to say that it's a simply killer set from beginning to end! Orgone is from Los Angeles, California. The group's sound draws from 1960s and 1970s-era funk and soul. While several members of the band played together from the early 1990s, Orgone did not coalesce into a regular band until around 1999. After a 2001 debut release, the band added vocalist Fanny Franklin and she has remained as a full-time member, although much of their music is instrumental.
