    c'mon, c'mon, c'mon! time to get joyful!

    kick it off with Sam and Dave. I know this tube has prolly been posted a hundred dozen time a'ready, but it's friday, and wondering - is that one of those legendary rosewood teles?



    smooth it on out with the Brothers Johnson, and it's all about the bass, really, thank you Mr. Louis Johnson, Stomp!



    and to the joy of joy itself, a brace of telecasters, the family stone cooking for a full 2 minutes before the man himself shows up, how can you not smile! c'mon, when the fiddle player is on wah wah? the keyboard kicking the whole thing off?



    Happy Friday!

    How 'bout some gospel funk from DFW? This band has a great backstory-like Ronnie Dawson they played for years before gradually fading away then were rediscovered by a new generation.

    Ha! I was kind of wondering about the light gospel hand clap feel - and then the funk kicked in about 1:30! Thanks! - hadn't heard these guys before and it made me laugh! in the good, joyful way...

    wow, that's some good stuff!

    Do you know Tjarko, down in Austin? He is like an encyclopedia-mind on this kind of stuff. And he has a Ronnie Dawson connection.

    Not that long ago, I heard a cover of this by John Mayer doing a local gig here in Los Angeles. Very very tasty! Here's a version he did live back in 2005 with the JM Trio, in case you've never heard JM play some funk.
