199: “The Dump” by Soul Vibrations, Lettuce

"The Dump" was the nickname of the Soul Vibrations' drummer.I recently stumbled across the original version of a song covered by Lettuce on their 2002 album, Outta Here.  Lettuce is partially composed of members of the band Soulive, and the band was named for their early days when they had to beg for equipment and playing time… “let us use your drum kit,” or “let us play.” Hence, “Lettuce.”  The original version of “The Dump” (1973) is by a band called Soul Vibrations, and you can still get their version on re-released vinyl.

Wrap your hips around “The Dump” and shake it around.

Two versions below for your Friday enjoyment.  Getcha some.
