RUBY ANDREWS - DIDN'T I FOOL YOU
From 1967 until the release of this record, Ruby Andrews worked consistently with the Brothers Of Soul (who we heard from a few days ago), and while Ruby certainly had her way around a ballad that can break your heart, this SLAMMING funk track shows that Ruby could LAY IT DOWN THICK when needed, with one of the tightest backing tracks in all of Detroit funk (yes, the band certainly gives Funkadelic some "Let's Take It To The Stage" competition here).Ruby's vocal SOARS, and the bass player is grooving so hard it HURTS, but this is one instance where I'm happy to take the punishment.
