The Mystery Suggester just hepped me to this one yesterday and, as always, she was right. This smokes. After a short piano intro, the first thing you notice is the guitar tone. The clickety clack sort of chicken pickin', kind of Bakersfield if you know what I mean. Then those drums come in, something about the sound on them. Turn it up. It's as if you're in the room with the drummer, but he's way over there, banging the shit out of them. When the piano returns and is playing off the drums, forget it, this sucker takes off. After another verse, a guitar solo, more banging, more pounding, then the fade out. I could certainly listen to this all day. Alas, apparently Roy Jones was a one and done guy because I can't find any reference beyond a single 45. But a mighty slab it is.
