This was also recently re-released by Stones Throw with the Breakestra version on the flip. This band is from my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. One of their members recently passed away and there was a very interesting obituary in the local news, giving the short version of the band's history. They were still performing in the area until the mid-80's. For more information, check Egon's article in issue #7 of Big Daddy magazine (and note the credit to yours truly...hehehe). anyone wanna put up the Breakestra version so the whole world can compare...

You can find this tune on Sound of Funk v.1 and Keb Darge Experience. Flip is a chill cover of "Rainy Night in Georgia" w/ stormy sound effects, odd.

I don't care how many commercials they use it for, I'm still not eating kentucky fried chicken. But I'm glad there will be some royalty checks b/c of it. Cheers for its inclusion on the Texas Funk compilation.
