28 March 2016, No. 139, Ballin’ Jack, ‘Special Pride’

We’ll get to the Ballin’ Jack tune of which you might recognize a snippet at No. 694 (it’s the sample source for “Bust a Move” by Young MC). This song, “Special Pride,” comes in at No. 139 and has a distorted guitar tone that, when it plays in unison with the horns, presages Ernie Isley’s Big Muff/wah-wah work on “That Lady” a few years later. Sort of.
