    This album is probably one of the finest Hot Sweaty Soulful Final Contribution that any man could make before he dies.

    Go back to music with real hurt. When a song could exorcise emotion & pain - long before it became manufactured sound. I agree Losdodgers24. Need real heart permitted in music again. Stop pretentious self-guarding.

    oseland wrote the shouts rightly credit Otis' impeccable vocals on this track, but wrongly overlook the perfection of the backing band. great song all around. The backing band the original BarKays defined Memphis Soul. Great shout!
