In Crowd of the month: The Pair

A groovy low-key vocal version this month, recorded live circa 1965.

There's not too much information floating around about vocalist Carl Craig and bassist Marcus Hemphill, the Pair Extraordinaire.

The best capsule bio I could find was over at Record Robot, where they'd already done their homework in a posting from earlier this year.

There's a little bit more to be gleaned from an old posting at It's Magic, as well as the 1986 New York Times obituary for Marcus Hemphill.
