    Seriously, just listen to it. Listen. To. Dat. Funk.

    Even Chuck himself seems to think so:

    Interesting link. Big Rainey fan since...Barnstorm by Joe Walsh?
    (actually, that is the 1st album I had with Rainey; a couple years down the road, I would get into him for other things).

    When I get home, I will check out the song you linked (I don't think I know that cover version).

    I read the comments to most of the others-
    Looks like I need to pick up Flack's Chapter 2...Rainey is a monster & so is Donny Hathaway!
    Funny comment about the last (flubbed) note on "Sanford & Son".
    Did not know Rainey played on "Groovin'" by The Rascals. Kinda cool that Rainey really likes his part/song.

    Btw, Chuck plays on the whole album, and lots of the songs have some pretty funky basslines. Do yourself a favour and pick up Shirley Scott and the Soul Saxes.

    The bass work on the later Rascals albums was always killin', Jerry Jemmott also on some of that work. The early 70's version of the band included Pops Popwell and Buzzy Feiten. I've always love the Rascals!!!
