James Taylor marked for funk
Bobby Womack - Communication (listen) James Taylor marked for funk.*
However, the true nature of Bobby Womack's remake genius is demonstrated in his 9+ minute exploded version of "(They Just Want To Be) Close to You."
The Isley Brothers - Givin' it Back (listen) Seriously, a baby-makin' soul rendition of a song about gunned down student protesters is probably the most inspired thing that ever came out of a bong hit.
Oddly enough, they do "Fire and Rain" as well.
I'm afraid to look to see if Boosty Collins has a version.
