Song Of The Day 12/9/2016: Mandrill – “Too Late”
Song Of The Day Outtakes 2016 -- This was cut from the Star Time Preview, but was played on the very first episode of Star Time, which first aired on kvru.org back on July 1. I found about it about 4 hours before it went on. Mandrill is one of the legendary "progressive" R&B bands of the '70s. I only put quotes around "progressive" because "Too Late" sounds pretty close to the mainstream. But in general, when you hear the second hour of Star Time going forward (new episodes early next year), groups like Mandrill are right at the heart of what I'm trying to do with that show. You should envision clattering wood and wisps of suspicious smoke. Or hell, just open your kitchen cupboard.
