Hunk of Heaven

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!
