Do Your Thing
I can't think of a better way to start the week than with an extended slow burning funk groove*. Do Your Thing comes from the soundtrack from the film Shaft, Although this is credited to Isaac Hayes the real stars of this track are the Memphis Strings & Horns and The Bar-Kays, the interplay between the horns and the wah-wah guitar is absolutely sublime, The track lasts for 19:32 and holds the attention til about the 17 and a half minute mark where it could have ended, I could have edited the last couple of minutes out but I think that it should be heard in it's entirety at least once.
