Available for the first time on CD is this self-titled album, also known to fans (and in some discographies) as "Hot Heat and Sweet Groove," as that slogan appears clearly on the back cover. With this 1968 Warner debut, the band outlined their loose, improvisational sound bridging the gap between the proto-funk explosiveness of James Brown and the earthy Southern grooves of the Stax/Volt stable, topped off by Charles Wright's incantatory lead vocals. Among the interesting originals on this album are also soulful covers of the Beatles "Yellow Submarine" and Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me." Includes original notes by comedian Bill Cosby - who discovered the Watts Band and used them as the backing band for his own 1967 R&B Reprise LP.
