Here are a few old treats we thought you’d enjoy now that Sam Moore is back in the spotlight with his new CD, Overnight Sensational.  Even the poor sound quality on the “Hold On, I’m Coming” video can’t disguise the magnificence of one of the greatest voices of the 20th century.  Enjoy the brilliance that is Sam Moore, even if the new record isn’t quite up to his normal lofty levels.


Sam and Dave—“When Something is Wrong With My Baby” [Live in 1965, backed by Booker T and the MGs]


Sam & Dave—“Hold On, I’m Coming” [Live, 1967]


Sam Moore—“I Can’t Stand Up For Falling Down” [Live on Later with Jools Holland, 2001]

“Wale Oyejide has returned with a new project that further binds the traditional sounds of Nigerian Afro-beat with the future vibes of the London Broken-beat scene, while managing to maintain the neck-snapping sensibilities of Hip-Hop. Try and imagine what it would sound like if Fela Kuti held a session with Bugz in the Attic in Brooklyn, New York, and you might have a vague idea.”—Shaman Work
