Release date:

Otis Redding's 'Sitting On The Dock of the Bay,' and James Brown's 'Ain't It Funky Now' turning them into the most Down Home, Grits 'N' Gravy Grooviest Versions and sounding like they were recorded at the studio of the band that taught the Memphis Rhythm Sections all they ever were gonna need to know.
As well as the aforementioned tracks the album also iconic funk/soul gems from the Impressions (Check-Out Your Mind) & Soul Jazz covers from Eddie Harris (Sham Time), The Crusaders (Greasy Spoon) and a Pacific Soul Jazz Classic in 'Ain't Tell You A Good Way But' which was composed by Takehiro Honda.
