Shake A Tail Feather

Oh, boy.  Here we go again. Another round of  The Greatest Song Ever Written (At Least For Today),   where we highlight a song, for the sake of the song.  No wordy exposition.  No Mountainesque rambling.  The song is the star.  Of course, we always encourage folks to support the artists' (or their legacies) involved.

Today's Greatest Song Ever Written (At Least For Today) was composed by the very mighty Andre Williams for The Five Du-Tones.  The rest is history, of course, from covers by Ray Charles and Ike and Tina Turner, amongst others.

But the original is the one...A nasty slab of fried-out soul groove and holler, shake yr ass like the morning will never come, and all you've got is sex, sweet sex, baby.  Oh, yes.  This is yr weekend groove, baby, and don't waste it.  'Cuz the sun's gonna come up, and where will you be?

Please support yr local.   Record Store Day is tomorrow!  Get some bacon-fried wax!
