Senor Spirit recorded some good spirit music, usually though not necessarily instrumental, in 1967-70 with Latin and funk tinges. That is the sort of music that Battle took to the very best of the graphs in the 1970s, as well as the similarities between your two rings aren’t a coincidence. War’s Chuck Miller is at Senor Spirit, and though for some of their documenting career he appears to have been the only real future Battle member involved, in addition, it seems most likely that Battle actually performs on the ultimate Senor Spirit single. That one, 1970’s “Don’t Place Your Funky Trip on Me”/”I Ain’t Got No Spirit Today (What IT REALLY IS, Y’All),” bears a composing credit nearly similar to the initial lineup of Battle: Harold Dark brown, Howard Scott, B.B. Dickerson, Lonnie Jordan, Lee Oskar, and Chuck Miller. The sound of the vocal numbers, as well, is quite much like early War’s materials. The majority of what Senor Spirit did, however, on the sole LP and many 45s was instrumental, and in a funk-soul-jazz vein, large on addresses of contemporary strikes. Many (though not absolutely all) from the tracks off their LP and singles, plus a handful of previously unissued slashes, came out in the 2003 Compact disc What IT REALLY IS, Y’All — THE VERY BEST of Senor Soul.
