RUFUS THOMAS : Funky Hot Grits (1973)

There is no other reason for posting this track than to show how funky AND funny Rufus Thomas can be. Truly the Crown Prince, he recorded this with the Stax rhythm section, and Thomas just ad-libbed most of the vocals; sounds like he's losing his mind!

Song : "Funky Hot Grits"

Recorded 1973
From the compilation LP "STAX OF FUNK. THE FUNKY TRUTH" (Stax) 2000

Also released as a single A-side (BGP records) Jul. 8, 2002:

Get it here : Funky Hot Grits
