High, High, High, High There

And Scorchio it continues.

This is something I used to play a lot on happy Hospital Radio Nine when things got sticky on the gritty streets of Tooting.

My vinyl copy of Sly's Greatest Hits is a tad worse for wear, so have this nice clean mp3 instead.

Wear sunscreen!

  2. Was watching Woodstock over the weekend - have you seen the Sly performance? I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E

    It's only one song 'Higher', but stick with it until the mid-song monologue, and then watch as the second half explodes (at 7:20)with some of the funkiest horn riffing and stage frugging you've ever heard and seen..

    The Santana clip Soul Sacrifice which leads into 'Higher' is well worth a peep too

  5. I was out and about this weekend taking the photos (you know, the ones I never post anymore) and listening to my 3 CD summer mix, and thinking as I listened to this song, that it was already absolutely appropo for this weekend. And it's only June! I'm with Ally.

  8. By George, what a disparate bunch of funk-filled go-getters.

    In the lead photo, there is a touch of Galen circa 1974 about him.
