Good Times (3 Stroke) - Robert Randolph

Legbamel Not-Pop

After the funk overdose yesterday, I just had to keep the groove going. Robert Randolph and the Family Band do a serious boogie on Good Times (3 Stroke). Just as you're settling in to the rhythm they throw you off at a minute twenty and then dive right back in, noodling around for bit and then another off-kilter jam.

Good Times is essentially an instrumental with rudimentary lyrics that basically say, "We're gonna have a good time." Then they do. And, not to beat that dead horse until it cries uncle, but songs like this are the reason I really, really want Prince to play with Robert Randolph. Seriously, can you imagine them trading solos on this piece for an hour and a half? I'd pay to see it, I can tell you that much.

Uh, just have a listen and let me know what you think. That hobby horse never did want anyone to ride it.
