Eugene Blacknell

Although Oakland/East Bay guitarist Eugene Blacknell under no circumstances released a full-length during his lifetime, he still got a whole lot of attention — both from contemporary regional DJs and record collectors down the road — from the countless 7″s he produced, including “Gettin Down” and “WE REALIZE We Surely got to Live Jointly,” which Beck sampled on “Dark Tambourine” from his 2005 album Guero. The San Francisco-based label Luv N’Haight/Ubiquity included a an eye on his, “The Trip” (performed along with his music group, the New Breed of dog), on the 2003 compilation Bay Region Funk, and in 2007 the same business, by using Blacknell’s boy Gino, who provided them usage of first tapes and early uncommon work done with the Savonics, released We Can’t Consider Lifestyle for Granted, an record that highlighted the artist’s abilities and capability to play in a number of styles, including blues, R&B, and, obviously, funk.
