Rich Brown is undeniably a VERY FUNKY MAN!

Funky Friday Song of the Day- Otis Redding and Carla Thomas

This one is dedicated to my Dad. This album came out the year I was born. Dad loved Otis Redding, and he used to play this album over and over again during my childhood. It stuck in my brain, it is part of my soul. Especially this song “Tramp”, with the edgy soulful sounds of Carla Thomas. This song is clearly the definiton of SOUL.
