The John Sims Group- In These Modern Times LP

This is a kinda weird, eclectic, jazz-funk-boogie-rock LP out of Minneapolis, released in 1985, released on Pendulum Productions (the label's address on the back cover has the same zip code as my current address.) The all music an the album was written by John Sims himself, and he shows off his talent as a multi-instrumentalist as plays keys, guitar, bass, percussion/drum machine, and sings. The standout song on here is "Funk That Junk", a boogie/funk joint with a synth bassline and some nice vocals by singer Mary Michaels. Listen to "Funk That Junk" below.
