While we might not necessarily make the connection between "rare funk" and Hialeah for whatever reason, many people across the globe have, and one of the most-sought-after platters to emerge from the South Florida music scene is Pearly Queen's "Quit Jivin'" single from 1974.
Closely associated with another outfit from the era, Wild Wind (either through shared membership or becoming it, I don't know; any pointers, as always, are appreciated in the comments section below), we'll be examining their recorded legacies within these digital pages in the coming weeks. In the meantime, enjoy a stream of the aforementioned single after the jump!
Note: Fans of DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist's Brainfreeze mix will recognize the horn-fueled break in the middle.
