Ebony Rhythm Band - Soul Heart Transplant 

Label: Lamp

Herb Miller owned the Lamp label. Drummer Matthew "Phatback" Watson got his start with his friend Jimmy Williams in The Golden Soul Showband, which backed Baby Leon. The serendipitous discovery of a copy of Ebony magazine inspired the group to choose their name. In the liner notes to Soul Heart Transplant: The LAMP Sessions Watson said the group was inspired musically by Spencer Davis' rhythm patterns (for "Drugs Ain't Cool"), The Meters, and The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band.

The Ebony Rhythm Band is: Matthew "Phatback" R. Watson -Drums, Lester "Lammy" L. Johnson -Bass, Robert "Master Boobie" L. Townsend, R.I.P.-Guitar, John "Ricky" R. Jackson-Organ. In the late 60's and early 70's they served as the house band for LAMP Records out of Indianapolis, Indiana, resulting in excellent backing tracks for local Naptown artists such as, The Vanguards, Pearls, Indys, Montiques, e.t.c. and of course recording their own, VERY elusive, psychedelic tinged, single, "Soul Heart Transplant" and "Drugs Ain't Cool". This legendary Indianapolis group later became known as Ebony Rhythm Funk Campaign. Look out for an unreleased album by The Ebony Rhythm Band and EPOXY in 2002. EPOXY is the Ebony Rhythm drummers group after he left E.R.F.C. and decided to do his own thing. The album will be titled, THE EPOXY THEORY.
