The Choice Is Yours!

While visiting Memphis (where i spent too much money on vinyl) last month for my 2 Year Wedding Anniversary, we decided to go to Soulsville USA BKA Stax Records. After entering and going into Satellite Records (where I spent a third of the too much money…the others spots being Spin Street and Goner Records), we took the customary tour which was enlightening to say the least. Upon exiting the museum, you find yourself back in Satellite Records (now this is after I’d already made my purchases). I decide to take one more look-see (silly me) just to make sure I didnt leave anything there that would add to my musical education.

As I’m deciding that I’ve gotten everything I could possibly want, an album stares me square in the face. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing album in appearance, but it speaks to something in me, and I pick it up; The album is Black Nasty – Talking to the People. Black Nasty was a funk band on Stax Records that came out of Detroit around the same time as Parliament/Funkadelic. Later, Black Nasty would evolve into The ADC Band and have a top R&B hit with “Long Stroke.” I present to you, however, a laidback groover from the “Talking to The People” album, “I Have No Choice.” Enjoy!
