Testify!







Another round of our Greatest Song Ever Written (at least for today)!

A greasy (our favorite word) slab of organ funk with blaring horns and a sermonizin' intro (though the subject of the sermon might not be exactly religious in nature) courtesy of the The Memphis Soul Band and released in 1969 on the aptly named rekkid Soul Cowboy (now that's a rekkid title!).

This is a tune to get yr ass down low and yr spirit soaring!  Deep groove, daddy-o!  Wiggle and shimmy to the break of dawn!

The Memphis Soul Band: Testify (I Wanna) (mp3)

More good stuff comin' (for realz, yo!)....Support yr local independent rekkid stores.  The rawk'n'Soul abideth!

When i first saw this listed with (I Wanna) at the end, I was curious if it was a cover of The Parliaments tune, and after a listen it seems like it is. Just thought you'd like to know if you didn't already. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%28I_Wanna%29_Testify
Thanks for running a great blog.
