Yes there are - consider the live track "You Name It" (that's how it's listed, I know it sounds like "Heartbreak) on Disc 1 of the EVD set, from the same show as "Don't Mess With Bill" on the SITSOM soundtrack deluxe edition. That's from one show where they opened for Motown headliners, and then backed them for their sets. There are reels of other live shows tethered to the main act, where the opening sets with the EVD band were recorded as well, like "Heartbreak" before the Jr. Walker set.

The EARL OF FUNK album was a document of an actual EVD/Funks show where they were the main act, and that's the only one in the vault.

Thank you Your Grace. I don`t care if they are brief covers I love the Funks. Any chance of them appearing on future "Cellar Fulls". I like so many rabid fans are getting older and we`re not afraid of dying but are afraid of going without hearing or knowing what`s in the vaults.
We have August here and there is nothing promised, this means cold turkey for an addict like me. Please open up those vaults and give us something each month that we can squander our pensions on. After all it is us that have kept this magic alive. Regards Roger.
