Funky - Chamber Brothers
The Chamber Brothers are most known for their hit 'Time Has Come Today'. Unfortunately, most listeners, myself included for many years, confused them with the Rolling Stones. The four Mississippi brothers (plus one white drummer) definitely had southern soul roots, but I was surprised to also learn of their friendship with Pete Seeger and participation with the Newport Folk Festival.
Anyway, 1970's 'Funky' is decidedly not folky, not in the slightest. It's an unconventionally groovy, goodtime track that's been on my crate digging radar for some time. Enjoy.
