Big Daddy Crimson – Leave My Woman Alone
If you’ve ever been sitting there watching Sesame Street & thought “damn, wouldn’t it be cool if Cookie Monster fronted a funk band?” Then this is the 45 for you, not only do you get two sides of nice Monk Higgins arrangements, you also get it all topped off with Big Daddy Crimson’s gruff, half spoken baritone. Kind of like Fat Albert after a night on the tiles if you like. The actual A-side is “You Gotta Do What The Jones’ Do”, which is also a pretty cool track. Released on the small Canyon label out of Hollywood which is probably most famous for the Doris Duke “I’m A Loser” LP.
