Dyke and the (Trail) Blazers
Rip City Nights...Big game tonight versus those old-ass Celtics in Boston. A good test on the road with a returning Garnett means Aldridge will have to bring the hammer. In preparation I'm posting the nasty soul and funk of Dyke and the Blazers whose name sounds like they come straight out of Portland, but they're from Buffalo of all places. Their track "We Got More Soul" should be the Blazers theme song. "Funky Broadway" recorded in '66 was covered in '67 by Wilson Pickett becoming one of his biggest hits. I'm also throwing in "Shotgun Slim." Just like the Trail Blazers, these funk pioneers bring the fire. Go BBBBlazers!
