SONG OF THE DAY Them Two – Am I A Good Man


tumblr_m28b767hr81qem6av_1334003373_coverToday’s supersonic soul song is linked to yesterday’s artist Freddie Joachim for he has also sampled this little gem in his (bursting-with-big-beats) Good Man track!

Also sampled by the likes of Ghostface Killah, 50 Cent and several other hip hop/r&b artists, Am I A Good Man was originally released in 1967.  Written and arranged by Clarence Reid and performed by Them Two, this is a glorious nugget of impassioned soul which I was happy to discover has recently been reissued!

Check it out above.
