Lead by 17 year old Carlton “Dirk” Poward, San Francisco’s Monsta was one of many ephemeral late seventies funk and disco bands that haunt the dreams of record diggers worldwide.
This is the only song Monsta ever released - on a 100 copies one sided test press - in 1978. But what a song!!!
Produced by the late Bill Withers, "Give Me Something Good" is an epic disco funk monster that has never been reissued to this day.
This Past Due Records reissue comes with a full sleeve and the story of Carlton “Dirk” Poward, Monsta and how the mighty Bill Withers got involved in the production of this magnificent slice of boogie…
