24 March 2015, No. 60, The Fatback Band, ‘Keep on Steppin’’

Kenny Raw taught me to juggle the intro and breaks in The Fatback Band’s “Backstrokin’,” and that’s still my favorite song of theirs, but this bouncy little “Keep on Steppin’” at No. 60 is much improved by the 16 bars or so of looped intro DJ Apt One added to the version I have. That version’s not online anymore, so just imagine the intro stretched out (and maybe blended with the fading-out of the steel drums outro from yesterday’s tune). Also, what is it with Fatback and droppin’ all the G’s from the ends of the verbs in their song titles? Just sayin’.
