Totally formative times, the early '70's, for this suburban white boy, music, anything motorised, Mad magazines, skateboards, Hot Wheels, clothing, but particularly music, songs like this genuinely 'moved' me, gave me some bizarre rush I couldn't even fathom . . . . which now, forty and more years later, I can identify as the kickarse 'soul' power thing of it all, compared to the typical four or five piece rock and roll stuff, this shit had depth and richness that outweighed most rock stuff by tons . . . . the same with funk, R+B, cool jazz and even 'good' disco, I love my rock and roll like crazy but kit like The Ides of March with its growling, sexually charged vocals, blaring, stabbing horns, throbbing rhythm section and all out oomph to this day really gives me the horn, deep, deep, down in ma belly . . . . c'mon, get some soul into ya homies !!!!
***** MUCH SOUL LOVE TO 'THEBACMASTER' FOR THE POOTUBE POST AND THE BITCHIN CLIP . . . . TOO GOOD DUDE !!!
