King Curtis - Instant Groove - Selected Cuts

Alright, something i don't do very often and give you multiple cuts from an album. I usually don't do this because I'm not here to rip artist off and give away free music just for the sake of giving it away so i usually only post a track or 2 from albums to share some great tunes and possibly turn some people on to something they might not have heard before, but when i put this album on the other day while moving some record boxes around the house and trying to make some order of the mess the car crash has laid on me i was saying to myself man, just about every tune on this record is a killer. So i couldn't decide what cuts to share so i'm just going to share a bunch of my faves from this KILLER 1969 King Curtis album. There were a few slower cuts that i omitted but i kept the heat intact. Anyway, if you are down with funk and soul music chance are that you know all about Mr. Curtis, if not, these are some Funky hot jams that should liven up your mood. There are a couple of great cover songs on this baby as well and you can read about the life & death of Mr. King Curtis AKA Curtis Ousley HERE: But for now hit play and get your weekend started!

Fabulous stuff DD - really love King Curtis from the Coasters stuff onwards. I didn't realise it was him on the Withnail & I soundtrack or that he'd died so close to recording the solos on the Imagine L.P. Tragic.

Still, the music lives on - and thanks you for sharing it.

This cover of Hey Joe is quite possibly the coolest thing ever.
