|By Amir Said (Sa’id)|
This is a wicked funk number. From the rapid-fire rhythm guitar strums; to the chaotic drum framework; to Gloria Walker’s soulful, juke-joint drawl, “You Hit the Spot Baby” is a masterpiece. With its multiple time changes and defiantly tight groove, this is certainly an early funk song worth studying.
