As one of the most innovative, prolific guitarists on the Miami funk scene in the ’70’s, Little Beaver has influenced tons of today’s best axemen, even if his name is undoubtedly unknown to many of them. Many rappers have sampled his work as well, though doubtless the millions of people digging these songs knew who was providing the main thrust of the song. Hopefully, it will not stay that way as the guitarist has recently had some of his more obscure sides released on the CD. Interestingly enough, these sides were recorded during Little Beaver’s erstwhile comeback in the mid-90’s. That they lay in the can for roughly ten years is a crime that has, with this release, hopefully been rectified.
