Sir Mack Rice- Mini-Skirt Minnie

Gone to bed.

It's an involuntary reflex. I swoon every time I hear a contemporary artist evoke the '60s soul of Stax Records. Last year I fell for throwback music by Christina Aguilera and James Hunter. And I can't wait to buy the new Amy Winehouse tomorrow. Her breakout song "Rehab" seems to "borrow" elements of this 1967 hit by Sir Mack Rice. The song is available on one of the best big investments I've made- The Complete Stax/Volt Singles 1959-1968 box.

My review of Aaron Lewis' Saturday night concert is here.

Kansas City Click: I suggest the Dennis Winslett-led jam session at the Blue Room.
