I have no idea why I gave this record a listen. As far I know, I'd never heard the song before, never heard of Bobby Foster, and what little I do know about Souncot records should have led me to believe this is a country record.
It's not. It's a killer funk thang. Exactly the kind of record that requires I find other copies because I-will-wear-this-one-out. Count on it.
[update: I was looking around for more info on Bobby Foster and found an old ebay listing for an acetate of this record. It has a Sam Phillips recording studio label on it....but I'm pretty sure Sam Philips had sold his operation to Shelby Singleton by that time. If that's true, then the sides could have been cut in either Memphis or Nashville, but my gut feeling says Memphis all the way.]
[correction & update: One of the readers has correctly pointed out that Sam Phillips only sold the Sun label to Shelby Singleton, but kept control of his recording studio. Also, I've found out there are at least six other Bobby Foster singles around. Now I just need to find them.]
