Clean Up Your Own Backyard - Leon Haywood

Not to be confused with the Elvis Presley song of the same name,  "Clean Up Your Own Backyard" is the 1972 single from Leon Haywood. It's a funky track made even funkier by borrowing the iconic piano hook from The Isley Brother's ubiquitous "It's Your Thing". Oh, and if that's not enough, there's the extra cowbell to really help bring it home. Enjoy.

Leon Haywood is probably best known for providing the sample for Dr. Dre's "Ain't Nuthin' But A "G" Thing".
