The Climax Blues Band- Cubano Chant

The smooth chant is over.

This wispy jam just reeks of 1969. Faux Latin groove, Herbie Mann-style flute and ridiculous stereo effects are on full display. It couldn't be any groovier. The British band went on to enjoy some commercial success in the mid-70s, most notably with the mild funk of "Couldn't Get It Right." That song is begging for the likes of Rob Thomas or Maroon 5 to bring it back to the top of the charts. In the meantime, I'll continue to groove on this pleasant diversion.

My review of last night's Soul Asylum and New Amsterdams show is here.

I'm not ashamed to say that I'll buy the final installment of Lemony Snicket's dastardly Series of Unfortunate Events books tomorrow. I may also pick up its musical companion by the Gothic Archies.

they put out a cover of Albert Kings "personal manager years ago that has to rank as one of the best preformed blues covers ever.
