Rufus Thomas – Do The Funky Chicken -1970 [ Remastered](2011)

| Posted in funk, soul

Rufus Thomas’ first album following Stax’s break from the Atlantic had “Do the Funky Chicken” as its centerpiece, so the emphasis upon good-humored dance tunes was unsurprising. There were some weird moments, particularly the down-and-bestial seven-minute update of “Sixty Minute Man” (on which Rufus sounds like he’s singing in tongues), a remake of “Bear Cat,” and a two-part version of “Old McDonald Had a Farm.” Still, the slightly goofy uptempo arrangements can get a little tiresome, and since his best hits from the period are better than the album-only tracks, almost everyone should just stick with a compilation. Some editions add seven bonus tracks from 1968-1974 singles, which are OK but not essential; Eddie Floyd’s “Funky Mississippi” (from 1968) is about the best.
