A word of warning here: do not listen to this song in the presence of any furniture whose main feature is a sturdy, flat surface (coffee tables, kitchen tables, etc.) as you will feel a strong desire to leap onto said platform and wave around random body parts. Teasley and bassist James King set up a muscular groove (providing yet another example of my long-held thesis that congas are the mostest funnest instruments on the planet) over which the horns are allowed to run rampant. Imagine the Tower of Power making a trip to the Middle East. Just don't do that while you're bustin' your coffee-table legs.
