Today’s track oozes slinkiness from every smooth chord and soulful beat throughout. With punchy breaks, deep stirring bass and dirty guitar licks caressing every groovy bar, Engine Number 9 is one fine figure of funk if ever I heard one!
The bass sinously struts taking centre stage as the heel clicks of a cowbell keeps things rhythmically wired and Pickett’s vocals are the icing on this delicious slice of soul! Engine Number 9 was released on Atlantic records as a 45 in 1970 and apart from grooving myself off the chair there isn’t much more needs to be said here! Listen and enjoy above.
