Rufus Thomas

Here's another funk track that has been sampled a million times- "Breakdown" by Rufus Thomas. The eccentric Rufus is undoubtedly one of the kings of funk, his music spanned decades starting with Sun Records and eventually ending up with the infamous Stax Records out of Memphis. His unique style has influenced many after him, if you get a chance check out his live performance in the documentary Wattstax from '72. Long live Rufus Thomas!
