The Bar-Kays – Soul Finger [1967]

What a cracking funk/soul track taken from the Bar-Kays first album of the same name. No heavy vocal work here, just a whole shit ton of funk and soul running the listener down like a steam train. An amazing track to come out of the gate with, sent them screaming past most of their contemporaries of the time, straight to Hottest Thing On The Planet. As we all know, those that burn brightly often burn shortest and sadly in this case, the vast majority of the Bar-Kays were killed in a plane crash leaving only Ben Cauley. A tragedy no doubt but who can argue that they didnt leave an amazing legacy with just this first album. Absolutely priceless.
