Title aside, "Howlin' At The Moon" isn't exactly Halloween material, but the song does serve as a suitable introduction for fans of the John Denver persuasion. Technically categorized as folk, or country folk, but this obscure singer/songerwritter verges more on folk funk (Keep in mind, I take definition liberties with the word funk). If you ever get bored of listening to "Take Me Home, Country Roads" I'd recommend giving Don Cooper a spin. You won't be disappointed.
'You Better Check Yourself' is another soul stormer, courtesy of John Ellison on lead vocals. This 67' single could easily measure up against any of Wilson Pickett or Otis Redding's harder hitting songs. It screams and belts in exactly all the right places. I ain't lyin'. Check yourself!
