​Live 2010 cover version of the Shafiq Husayn track “Major Heavy”, from the album Shafiq En’ A-Free-Ka

produced by Sonny Coates/ co- prod. SA-RA
(O. Coates/ S. Husayn)

personnel:
Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner: bass/ whistle/ bckground vocals
Sonny Coates: guitar/ lead vocal
Shafiq Husayn: percussion/ bckground vocals
Wow Jones: fender rhodes, synthesizers
Om’Mas Keith: drums/ percussion/ bckground vocals

I’m not really up on SA-RA and affiliates that much, so the significance of who covered what and played with whom is mostly lost on me. But I do know quality psychadelic soul, and this is definitely that. Very warm, very California-ish, maybe slightly reminiscent of the softer sides of Shuggie Otis’ catalogue.
