  Although Detroit is best known for fostering the musical talents of countless Motown artists, the Motor City played host to a spectrum of scenes. While the Jackson 5’s “Dancing Machine” was incinerating dance floors nationwide, an accomplished organist name Lyman Woodard was putting the finishing touches on Saturday Night Special, a unique amalgamation of organ funk, sophisticated soul, and straight-ahead jazz, which has garnered an enormous cult following in the years since its release.
Unlicensed reissues have been circulating for years, each suffering from low-fidelity confines of a single LP and rendered by recording the original record. Now, in full cooperation with Lyman Woodard and Strata Records, Wax Poetics has remastered the original tapes, unlocking the sonic brilliance of these legendary sessions for the first time on this double LP.
Saturday Night Special is the fifth release by Wax Poetics Records, which, like its sister publication, is quickly becoming the authority on soul music’s unsung heroes. Purchases will include a complimentary MP3 of Saturday Night Special, as well as Lyman Woodard’s later albums Dedication and Don’t Stop the Groove, available exclusively at Wax Poetics Digital.
