The Triumphs - Burnt Biscuits - Raw Dough
Thursday when the old devil here sits down w/ the family and gives thanks, chances are that when my me mum breaks out my Nana's (RIP) family biscuit recipe and gets to cookin' what were going to end up with is a little bit of burnt biscuits and or raw dough. The A is for effort and they are made with love so I'll shovel them down my gullet gladly and wash 'em down with a sudsy mug or 10...
Anyway in honor of my Mommy dearest and my Nana, whose biscuit recipe when followed properly is really stellar and as a way to give thanks, I share with you The Triumphs with 2 GREAT funky instrumental soul sides from 1961, Burnt Biscuits & Raw Dough!
This 45 is the first Volt single, produced by Chips Moman, whose influence was capital at the beginning of Satellite/Stax. The Triumphs included Howard Grimes on drums, Marvell Thomas on keyboards, Lewis Steinberg on bass and Chips Moman on guitar. Apparently named after Chip Moman's car this is the one and only single by the 1st interracial group from Memphis. There is a nice little section on them in the Soulville U.S.A book, if you care to read up any further... Oh yeah, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
