Every Friday is Funky Friday on Planet Mondo and to tie in with this week’s theme of hidden nuggets and covers I’ve loaded up a couple of obscure Youtube treats and two Rock ‘n’ Soul covers from Wilson Pickett and Solomon Burke.
Arthur Conley is probably best known for ‘Sweet Soul Music’, but this is Art’s shakedown of ‘Shake Rattle and Roll’.
Arthur Conley Jr – Shake, Rattle, Roll
Who is Roger Martin? Why isn’t he a superstar? Why is ‘They Say’ a secret stomper and not a soul standard? And where can I get hold of this track?
Roger Martin – They Say
I do know the backing musicians are Freddie Kingand his band though.
Finally two funky takes on sixties rebel rock classics
