7 April 2015, No. 70, Eddie Bo, ‘Hook and Sling Part 1’

It’s tunes like this that make me wish I paid more attention to 45s. I don’t, though. I should buy a box to store properly the seven-inch records I already have. Then maybe I’d be on the lookout for more. But as it is, with no place to keep them, those little records are things I don’t collect. The songs on them, on the other hand, are vital things to have, and especially this one. The snare-heavy drums and relentless tambourine drive this thing right into your feet while Bo yells “Hook it! Hey, you over there with the big yams, sling it!” Here’s No. 70, Eddie Bo, “Hook and Sling Part 1.”
