Spencer Davis Group – I’m a Man
side a: I’m a Man
side b: I Can’t Get Enough of It
Once again it was brother Guuz who turned me on to this song. It was of course on one of the many tapes he made me and I absolutely loved it from the second that bassline entered my ears. To this day the song makes me want to wobble that gut of mine and I don’t think it’ll ever change. Whenever I go out to spin some records, this one is in the bag and it will be played.
The Spencer Davis Group reformed a couple of years ago, albeit with Spencer Davis and Eddie Hardin as the only original members. At present, the SDG consists of Davis, Tom Fillman, Edward Tree, Jim Blazer and Taras Prodaniuk.
PS: check out the seventeen minute disco version done by Italian star Macho.
