LOWELL FULSON - MAKE A LITTLE LOVE


Reportedly born in a Choctaw native American reservation, Lowell Fulson made a name for himself as one of the PREMIER west coast bluesmen after his family relocated to Southern California and had a long career in which he penned a handful of standards. Also, his raw to the bone version of "Tramp" was refined and taken into the stratosphere by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas.

Here, in this follow up record to Tramp, we find Otis flaunting his newly found fame with one of the catchiest choruses in all of sixties blues. Not to mention that super funky band behind him.

from 1967...

Commented on this one earlier, before I'd heard it and needed to come back to say what an absolutely kick-ass slice of blues funk this is! Thank you. W.
