Description : If this isn't funk, than grits ain't groceries! If you're old enough, you may remember the Temptations. This track is my inspiration of this wonderful group's music with such songs a 'Psychedelic Shack' and 'Cloud Nine.' Unfortunately, this music is lost on today's artists, which is a shame, cause it was sooooo good! This track is not a recreation of the Temptations, but my inspiration of their style with my style thrown in. Hope you like it.

Never saw the Temptations live, but I did see the Four Tops! Great groups. Fantastic music. This is really nice echo of that era.

Yes, a lot of current music isn't all that inspiring, but there still are some really good musicians out there making the real stuff. Just watched the video of the Tedeschi Trucks Band tribute to Joe Cocker, on Youtube. Leon Russell and other alumni from the Mad Dogs and Englishmen Tour.

Susan Tedeschi is a remarkable singer and her husband, Derek Trucks is, well, an inspired musician. And, from what I've seen of him in interviews, not full of himself. Dedicated to making good music. There's good music out there still, but a bit harder to find I think.

hello Scott.

this is some really enjoyable tune, not really a proper 'song' that much for me but just a nice combination of different short instrumental solo sections and that is perfectly fine!

I find the bass line and the keys really inspiring. to me funk styles will always sound modern - they are a true source for a great amount of contemporary music.

I will check out the bands you mentioned, thanks for some nice inspiration.

all the best to you, alex

Hey Alex,

Thanks allot for taking the time to listen and comment on my track. Yeah, give The Temptations a listen. They were a great group.

Wow really nice track. Brings back good memories, and when you said Unfortunately, this music is lost on today's artists. I am a little lost in this since I do not hear music in today's artists.

I think Soundhound and I am on the same page also.
ScottB55 replied 13th Jun 2015 - 9 years ago
Hey James,

Glad you like it and took time to comment. I agree...I seem to dwell in the past, musically, since I just can't find anything in today's music worth listening to.

Hope things are going well. We have corresponded in awhile.

soundhound 13th Jun 2015 12:55 - 9 years ago
You are right Scott...
This style has gone by the wayside, like Classical... :) the bone yard
is full of good music, that this generation will never understand...
They have dumb down the music playing tools, so the don't have
to think...Just Drag and Drop...They don't need to play anything
anymore, there is really no work involved " No Talent Needed " to
become a Star or so they think...
Back in the day, if you couldn't play it there was no instrument
that would say it for you...
If we had these tools back then, and did things the way we did
Man...The whole game would have been different, it cost me a
small fortune to do the tracks I did back then...

You've done Motown some Justice with this track...
Nice 1...My Man...

ScottB55 replied 13th Jun 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks allot, TG. Your comment of doing justice to Motown means allot! You're right, the kids today just don't get it. Unless you go to an oldies show or listen to an oldies station, you can't hear it. I knew there was something strange when a guy scratching records on stage was considered a musician. In the early days, scratching records was considered noise. Now it's considered music and a turntable is considered an instrument! Oh well.

Oh is funk...and not just that, it's a sensational
one! Due to lack of time I won't go into details but this is as inspiring and powerful as it gets! Faved for sure!

ScottB55 replied 13th Jun 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks so much, Orlando. Your comment is really humbling and it means allot. Much appreciated.

Danke 13th Jun 2015 11:16 - 9 years ago
But you are playing this music Scott, fortunatelly (o.k. you are not tody's guy...:-)
Sensational groovy based music with your innovative drum...tha bass is more than good...that part from 3.03: the drum, bass duel is outstanding...

You did it again...respect, Danke
ScottB55 replied 13th Jun 2015 - 9 years ago
Yes, I create what I love, so even though I reach back to the past for inspiration, I always hope other fine musicians, like yourself, can still appreciate it. Try as I might, I just can't find inspiration in today's music, unless it's jazz.

Always a pleasure to hear from you, my friend.

Description : Updated 12/2/2022. This is an interesting redo of a funky and fun composition. I gave it more polish by switching to a different drum kit, swapped the flute solo for a synth, then infused more flavor into the guitars, bass and organ. Then lastly tweaking the final master. Can you tell the difference? Let me know. Enjoy.

A classic funk track from the 70's, featured in Cheech and Chong's "Up In Smoke".
I have always loved this song and also love to perform it. It's a fun one with a really tight groove.

I am performing vocals, bass guitar, rhythm guitar, harmonica and the casaba. MIDI instruments used are drums, timbales, cowbell, shaker, horns and tenor sax.
