Edgewood - Ship Of Labor (1971 us, exceptional classic rock with psych and prog sense)

Edgewood were from Memphis, Tennessee and were around long enough to record an album called \’Ship Of Labor\’ so they may have made some waves back in their hometown. \’Ain\’t Had No Lovin\’ is laid back west coast style hippie rock circa early 70s and in places goes a bit jazzy which of course reminds of Spirit.

Edgewood recorded one and only album for TMI Records (it stands for Trans Maximus Inc) and was the name of Recording Studios run by Steve Cropper. The record label lasted from 1971-1973.
