777-9311 - The Time

WHAT TIME IS IT!? Unh!

It's the weekend, everyone! Sure, the rival band from Purple Rain gets all the credit for this funk-gasm, but you know this jam is 100% Prince. I could listen to the entire eight minutes over and over again.

And I do.

Over. And over. And over.

Betty Davis | Don't Call Her No Tramp

Here's another kinky jam from the olden days. Phunk/phashion diva Betty Davis was briefly married to Miles, but apparently she was "too wild" for him. Larry Graham is all over her first album, and there's plenty of Sly-ed out rollin' and thumpin' on this track from They Say I'm Different, her second. Frantic clavinet courtesy of Tony Vaughn. Light In the Attic dusted these off a few years ago, just piling up more gems in their excellent catalogue. Righteous proto-Parliament-via-Bowie cover art on this one as well. Dig in, folks!
