Good, Bad & Funky - Shotgun


I had never even heard of Shotgun before stumbling on this cover for 1978’s Good, Bad & Funky (their second LP). Here’s what Allmusic has to say about the group:

A Detroit funk group whose enthusiasm didn’t pay off in hit singles. Trumpeter Richard Sebastian, saxophonist Greg Ingram, keyboardist/lead guitarist Billy Talbert, guitarist Ernest Latimore, bassist Larry Austin, drummer/vocalist Tyrone Steels, and percussionist Leslie Carter made entertaining songs in the best Ohio Players/Slave/Cameo mode but never could land the elusive hit. They also toured with Rick James while recording for ABC, MCA, and Montage in the late ’70s and early ’80s.

Good, Bad & Funky was released on ABC Records (AA-1060), with photography and art direction credited to Dick Zimmerman.
