Lonnie Smith Move Your Hand (1969)

    Blue Note
    • Lonnie Smith – Move Your Hand
    • 1. Charlie Brown
    • 2. Layin' In The Cut
    • 3. Move Your Hand
    • 4. Sunshine Superman

    Oh man, this is so heavy. The super-deep 'Move Your Hand' along with twisted vocals and hypnotic, incessant rhythm is one of the heaviest sounds of all played loud in a club. Bad, bad tune! Tripped out organ funk of the highest level.
