Rufus Thomas – “Ugly Like Me”

This song is dying to be the music from an 80’s movie fashion-transformation-montage. “Ugly Like Me” is a funky, horn-stabbed lesson for playin’ it cool when you’re “ugly” like the GR8 Rufus Thomas. But to me, ya know, there isn’t a more beautiful man.

Memphis All Stars – “All Star Shuffle”

Here’s some fine crispy fresh funky swangin’ blues for yer medicine. Hot sh!t horn section work, a blazing Hammond Organ, Hibachi-fried guitar riffs, and a steady walkin’ rock steady bass and drum boogie, all add up to the Memphis All Stars’ “All Star Shuffle”.” Tight, inspired, and fun instrumental combo playing that is pure Memphis.
