Livin’ For The Funk: SWITCH (Unsung)

​Finally braced myself to watch the profile episode. On a lighter note, is it just me or does Phillip (feather perm) seems like he was saying during the interview segment “oh that’s nothing..that’s just the half of it”! lmfao He was one of the funniest and candidly honest. There were some other funny highlights..Jody: “siiiiign the mathafacka!!”..lmfao!! I need to see the unedited interviews for the culture..lol I don’t wanna give away too much. On a musical note, Phillip was a great lead vocalist as well, I had no idea that was him all these years (it’s in the genes as well..look up: Ingram Kingdom). Tommy is indisputably a beast bass player.. he had some serious thumps on all those recordings. Looking back makes me appreciate them more. For the record and as a fellow historian who personally witnessed that era, “Best Beat In Town” was irrefutably one of their staple jams..everybody had to turn in a “Dance Record”..even Rock bands. Knock it off…that song was huge in the hood. I can’t allow shade to be thrown on one of the best party jams of all time. Dont be putting a remix on history…go get your old Billboard stats..ijs #switch #unsung #unique74

Steely Dan Obsession

#NP There is such thing as a perfect song. If I had one song that I could play all night..”Peg”. The best 3:58 minutes. I have been obsessed with this song since it’s 1977 release. The one sided  panned flanger on keys are priceless. One of my biggest wishes is to hear the remaining parts of the song faded out with the epic #jaygraydon solo. The song and groove lock perfectly. Still waiting to meet “Peg” tho. #np #steelydan #michealmcdonald #chuckrainey #rickmarotta #stevekhan #tomscott #paulgriffin #dongrolnick #peg #musicmonday #unique74
