Wow! How much of a classic is this!? Absolutely blazing tour-de-force hammond organ and drumkit business! The 1968 original is so short that it is looped end-to-end twice over for this 12" reissue. The riff from this was grabbed by several major hip-hop artists in the "rare groove" period of the late 80s, notably Salt'n'Pepa for "Tramp". Watch the tempo though if you are trying to mix with it, it jumps up and down all over the place - better to play the whole thing through - it's that good!
