Truth And Soul

Truth And Soul by Fishbone
Released: Sep 1988
Label: Columbia
The first Fishbone album to point to the mind-rattling spray of styles that made them famous, Truth and Soul is a hyperactive pastiche of ska, punk, funk, alternative rock and even metal that may not have launched them into the Top 10, but did cement their rep as the coolest band to know about in 1988. Setting the tone with a cover of Curtis Mayfield's signature hit "Freddie's Dead," the band delivers an education on the limitless potential of funk music -- in "Slow Bus Movin' (Howard Beach Party)," they either get away with playing country or eviscerate it.
