    First I've heard that Stevie song.. damn.. just when you think you've heard them all. I agree gb, that was extremely funky.

    Two chords and the truth. Stevie had it going.. Ya this may be the funkiest song of all time.. I can't think of one that tops it.

    When the rhythm guitar cones back in after the guitar solo (you heard that right) - it's a real mother...

    I had no idea about Ray Parker Jr. playing guitar here. Thanks for bringing this song up. The album is of course incredible.

    With regard to changing your mind, I have to bring up James Brown’s Cold Sweat. To me, this invented the funkiest funkiness ever funked. I think all the other funk inventors would have to bow down to this one. I know I do.
