SONG OF THE DAY Frankie Seay & The Soul Riders — Soul Food

If you were to play the first 30 seconds of this song on a continuous loop, I’d be a happy bunny, this is one seriously gorgeous big beat!  Don’t get me wrong, I love the whole track, but this into is lovely!!

It’s no wonder that the likes of DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist have sampled this delicious slice of funky soul, the rhythm lends itself perfectly to any hip hop track.

Originally recorded by Frankie Seay And The Soul Riders in 1969, Soul Food was released on Tropical Records with an equally funky instrumental b-side called Black Jack, and if you ever happen to stumble upon a copy of this, take it and run, it’s fetching good money and worth a few bob if you get one in nice condition! Time to get funky and listen above…..
