259: “My Girl” by Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Yeah, but can he play the clarinet and tuba simultaneously?Just go on and move your back side with some finesse and debonair to a classic rendition of The Temptations’ “My Girl” from Blacknuss (1971), by the great Rahsaan Roland Kirk.

That’s right. Blacknuss. Get used to it. The color AND the spelling. Sucka.

Happy Friday, and enjoy!!

114: “I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)” by Aretha Franklin

Just wait until I open my mouth.This song sounds as fresh and authentic as the day it was recorded.  Not sure what else I can add to this one…

Okay…

I’d leave my wife and family for Aretha Franklin if she told me to in a song.  She’s only 68.  I think we could make it work.  I’d miss you, wife and family.

Enjoy some early Aretha (1967).
