Cover of: Thomas, Rufus - The Funkiest Man (2lp)
The Funkiest Man (2lp)
Stax | LP | 24 €

Repress!!! What made Rufus Thomas one of the undisputed dancefloor kings of his time was his ability to keep things simple and to the point, and to let the funk do the talking. Here the funk is talking so loud it's almost screaming. Most of you will need no introduction to rampant "Yellow Stax" club classics like Push And Pull, Breakdown and Itch And Scratch, not to mention some of Rufus' slightly earlier floorfillers like Sophisticated Sissy and Funky Mississippi. And it won't take you long to grow to know and love the quintet of tracks that were originally destined to be part of Rufus' 1975 Stax album that got shelved when the company went under in that same year. "I ain't getting older, I'm getting better" barks Rufus over the relentless, spartan funk of one of them, I'm Getting Better. Quite so - and much the same can be said for the contents of this LP. Rufus Thomas. No longer the "Funkiest Man Alive", that's true. But forever The Funkiest Man as far as Memphis music is concerned. You want proof? Here's your proof..
