Edwin Starr

motown soul // northern soul

The music from Motown was the only stuff that could speak your soul and to your dancing feet. We all know Edwin from his classic protest song “War”, so much that Jackie Chan quotes it. Great song; this one’s even better. He recorded it a year earlier in 1969. The driving percussion feels like bullets shot at your toes (dance, sucka!) and the hard baritone sax and horns grab your shoulders into a solid groove. It’s a classic inescapable tune that got a little too forgotten. Revive it.
Throw down for a hot funky soul-filled number. Grab the big beat remix if ya feelin’ it.
