Carl Sherlock Holmes started gigging in the early sixties forming Carl Holmes & the Commanders with whom he recorded a full length album for Atlantic in 1962 entitled >Twist Party At The Roundtable<. Later on he recorded a couple of 45s for the Parkway and Verve labels. In May of 1966 a pre-Experience Jimi Hendrix gigged with the group but never recorded with them. After a final 45 for the local Philly label Black Jack, the group disbanded and Carl formed the Sherlock Holmes Investigation, a solid outfit backed by a strong rhythm section packed with congas, vibes, flute, organ and sax. Phillys Sigma Sound Studio was the place they recorded their sole album and Curtis R. Statens CRS Records was the label that released it.
And here we are. Available for the first time on 45RPM single we chose the smokin, breakbeat-heavy funk of Black Bag while the flip-side contains the latin-inspired jam Modesa.
