Let's start the week off with the funky boogie gem "Hunk of Heaven" by the Hawaiian based funk group Lemuria. This track was featured on the group's 1978 self-titled album, which I believe is the group's only release. Much like the state that the group comes from, the funky track has an overall "feel-good" boogie groove that is perfect for all of those "not-currently-happening-due-to-the-cold-weather" summertime outdoor disco parties. However, if the winter does have you a bit down this year due to all the crazy blizzards we seem to be having this year (not in SF of course), then a track like "Hunk of Heaven" might be the perfect remedy to tie you over until the warm weather begins to approach us once again. Enjoy!
