Artist: The Equatics
Title: Doin' It!!!
Format: CD/Digital/Vinyl LP
Label: Now Again Records

The stories of great high school funk bands are, thanks to an abundance of reissues, commonplace, but are rarely found striking into the realm of "grown folks" music. Enter The Equatics and their brooding masterpiece 'Doin' It!!!!'
 
If this is categorized as a "funk" album - and it was for the last ten years, by those few lucky enough to own an original copy - it holds its own. But it was as a soul band, one as inspired by the melancholic musings of Bill Withers as the psychedelic-pop of the self-proclaimed 'Black Moses' Issac Hayes, that the Equatics shone.
 
These young souls offered world-weary, beat-heavy ballads that stand on par with any of the great independent organizations of the early 1970s. That a group of teenagers could offer such an angst-ridden plea as that of
Leo Davis' 'Merry Go Round' not only transcends the limitations that came from the band's average age (seventeen, at the time of the album's recording), but also the barriers the stood in front of this group of small-city hopefuls.
 
This official reissue was licensed by The Equatics' bandleader, bass player Benjamin Crawford.
