Encounters of the Dutch Rare Grooves: Tony Sherman

I always loved the band WAR (with or without Eric Burdon), and was very pleased to encounter this seven inch (on the BASF label) with Tony Sherman's version of WAR's Slippin' into darkness on the flipside...Tony was born in Haarlem, Netherlands (his parents hailed from the Antilles) and made a few recordings under his own name, later he formed a band called The Shermans. Tonight is his second single (1974) and the A side is allright, but Slippin' ... really hits the spot. Funky Funky Holland! Definitely a candidate for the next Dutch Rare Groove compilation!
