"Gimme That Funk" #2

Milton Bland AKA Monk Higgins, was a multi-talented saxman who had a big hit with this track in 1972, lifted from his "Heavyweight" LP on United Artists Records.
It was while he was arranging and producing for acts on UA that he released "Gotta Be Funky", it has become heavily sampled, not surprisingly with that drum beat.
It was included on the 2004 Blue Note Trip compilation "Goin' Down Gettin' Up".
