Do The Funky Chicken Rufus Thomas


Modern Soul
Catalogue Id:

Having spent most of the sixties doing the dog, Rufus turned his attention to chickens in 1970. A new decade - a new animal to dawn it! There's also a re-work of his early Sun Records outing, "Bearcat". From the same era are "Sixty Minute Man" and "Let The Good Times Roll" all stamped indelibly with that Rufus Thomas sound, which always refuses to take itself too seriously. And let's face it with a dress sense like this man, how could he possibly try to be serious. But underneath the all round entertainer was always a fine blues singer. This man is an institution round Memphis and his talent has now straddled 5 decades, with his cameo appearance in the Jim Jarmish movie 'Mystery Train'. So dust off that old chicken outfit you have lying around the attic and get down with Rufus and do the funkiest of funky chickens. Move those elbows - Squawk squawk!
