"Groove Making" : THE WEEKEND MIX
It started with the title track, an amusing little groove maker from the "Crying In The Streets" man, George Perkins. Not the greatest soul number ever recorded, but I'm in love with it nonetheless, especially when Perkins calls out for support and one or two startled voices respond with a tepid, "Yeah."
The rest seemed to fall in place. Each song falls into its own special pocket, whether being led by a Hammond organ or a bad-ass funk beat. It's gonna be a steamy one this weekend, with temps hitting 100. Hope the mix is appropriate for whatever you do.
Enjoy the weekend!
