151: “We’re Doing It (The Thang) (Part 1)” by Eddie Bo

Eddie Bo was known for getting spinach stuck in his teeth.Eddie Bo (1930-2009) came from a family of bricklayers, but his mom was a self-taught pianist who was friends with Professor Longhair.  He chose the ivories over bricks.  The only artist from New Orleans to release more singles than Eddie was Fats Domino.

Eddie Bo was responsible for serial occurrences such as The Thang, The Hook and Sling, and the checking of one’s bucket.

This one, “We’re Doing It (The Thang) (Part 1)” has been sampled by DJ Shadow and numerous other deejays, probably because it is cut from the purest naturally grown funk.

Enjoy.
