LET THE GROOVE MOVE YOU
A classic, rare funk 45 from 1969 by Gus "The Groove" Lewis released on Allen Touissant/Marshall Sehorn's Tousea Label. "Let the Groove Move You" has all the elements of a great Funk 45: heavy drum breaks, punchy horn stabs, dirty guitar, an incredible rhythm section--not to mention Gus' charismatic, soulful vocals.
The groove is still moving us plenty, even 40 years later. Thanks Gus (and your incredible band).
