‘Amen, Brother’ – Instrumental soul & funk classics!
Finally funk-fans are able to get a hold on one of their favourite bands again: on this album japans pure 60s Funk outfit simply performs their favorite instrumental cover tunes. The Osaka Monaurail album „Amen, Brother!“ – released in japan under the name of Undercover Express „Introducing Undercover Express“ – strictly contains well-known soul & funk classics and surprising minor tunes that you'll enjoy.

The album contains coversongs from these amazing bands: AMEN, BROTHER (The Winstons, 1968), MAD PIERROT (Yellow Magic Orchestra, 1978), OPEN THE DOOR, RICHARD! (Jack McVea, 1947), CAFE REGIO'S (Isaac Hayes, 1971 from the OST "SHAFT"), SUPERSHINE 9 (Originally on the OST "GORDON'S WAR" by Badder Than Evil), Medley: CHOCOLATE BUTTERMILK (Kool & The Gang, 1970), GET DOWN (Curtis Mayfield, 1971), LITTLE OLD MONEY MAKER (The Meters, 1969), GET READY (The Temptations, 1966), MESSAGE TO LOVE (Jimi Hendrix, 1969), SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED I'M YOURS (Stevie Wonder, 1970) and HEY JUDE (The Beatles, 1968).Further, the album contains three outstanding bonus live recordings: TRUCK TURNER (Isaac Hayes, 1973), SOULFUL STRUT (Youg-Hold Unlimited) and TIGHTEN UP (Archie Bell & The Drells).

In 2007 Osaka Monaurail from Japan celebrate their 15th year of existance. Named after the „It’s the JB’s Monaurail“ album by The JB’s - they live and breathe the sound of the James Brown Orchestra wth an unmatched perfection and devotion. As they started out as a 15-piece band they went through some changes over the years and are now a 9 member funk outfit that has already five albums and and nine vinyl-singles under their belt as well as last years comeback album by Funk-Icon Marva Whitney, who they accompanied on the full length-release called „I Am What I Am“.

Their love for the heroes of the 60s and 70s goes as far as Bandleader Ryo Nakata being responsible for the re-release of movie-classics „Superfly“ and „Coffy“ for the Japanese market in 1999, making it a successful venture in the movie-theatres as well as on DVD.

On stage they dress shaply in matching suits and play in unbelievable fashion as proven on the 2005 Live-Album „Eyewitness To The...“, where you can hear Legendary Deep Funk-DJ Keb Darge give them his approval in Japanese.
