Drive-by soul

Good morning, I'm "on assignment'' today. Where it takes me I'm not sure. But with a new album by Booker T. blasting through the speakers it won't be all bad.

Nothing like a Hammond B3 to get you out of a hole. In fact, the CD is called "Potato Hole'' and includes some snappy guitar work by Neil Young and the backing of the Drive-By Truckers. The third cut, which I just heard, is a killer version of Outkast's "Hey Ya.'' What else do you need?

Well, how about some liner notes? What the hell. I can't read while I'm driving. I'll have more after I've given this a few spins. Until then ... Hey ya!

  1. The Leslie tone cabinet was the greatest invention of the 20th Century. And nobody ever got more out of it than Booker T.
