The Rising Sun
Funky Yolk

Born 1940, Arnold "Hoss" Albury played keyboards and was an organist for the world-famous 'Marching 100 Band' out of Miami. He was a big figure in Miami's funk scene and was a pioneer of the TK Records sound as exemplified by KC and The Sunshine band later in the 70s.

Arnold was a founding member of the group The Rising Sun along with Florida-based producer, songwriter and percussionist Willie Clarke. The two worked with most of the local talent around at the time including Betty Wright and Clarence Reid and put out several records of their own. Can't find info on this particular 45 but The Rising Sun released another 45 entitled 'Good Loving' on Kingston (K269) in 1973 so 'Funky Yolk' (K267) must have been released shortly before. A heart attack and stroke led to Arnold's untimely departure from the music business later that year.
