I was wondering

Stevie Wonder - Music of My Mind (lala)
Curtis Mayfield - Curtis (lala) I was humming something while walking the dog last night that I thought might be part of a Stevie Wonder song but was, in fact, the horn break in Curtis Mayfield's "Move on Up. " What a killer album this is. "(Don't Worry) If There's A Hell Below We're All Going To Go" even threatens Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain" in the World's Most Badass Funk Oath category. Warning: racial slurs utilized in the name of consciousness raising, in cvase you don't have headphones on.


  1. The Afghan Whigs did an insanely indulgent (by their standards!) Thanksgiving show in NO years ago that opened w/ "If There's Hell Below," which was brilliant. Dulli sang with the commitment of a man 100 percent guaranteed in his mind that he's going down. It's available on a promo EP that came out with "1965" (I think) and it survives the translation to disc about as well as it could, which is to say that it's fine, but it doesn't feel like being there did.

  2. I love the Greg Dulli and his Hindenberg self-loathing. I'm going to have track that down.
