I found this song when browsing through the radio podcasts by Midnight Soulstice on W-RIR 97.3 (be sure to check out http://www.myspace.com/midnightsoulstice and tune up to their weekly radio shows). I was lucky enough to be the only bidder on an E-Bay auction, which got me a good deal for this rare gem.

Hailing from Miami, Bobby Williams gets 100 out of 100 points for pure funkiness. I can’t find much info on Bobby, but you can clearly hear the James Brown influences going on here. The tune instantly blasts off pure horns ‘n all funky style, with his typical screams and shouts Bobby gets the party started.  Watch out for that drum break! For a 1974 song, it is recorded almost at the end of the great funk era, but there is somehow a 60s rawness to this recording that makes it stand out. Enjoy!
