Album Review: The Menahan Street Band, "Make The Road By Walking"

Alternatively sounding like walking down a Brooklyn street on a warm Saturday afternoon, the best Booker T album never made, and a lost blaxploitation soundtrack, another gem from Daptone. Vibrant, upbeat, classy, late 60s sounding soul instrumentals, tighter than tight instrumentation. Sounds like RJD2, Budos Band...groove on it, mad atmospheric.

Play all, but esp: 1+++(sampled in Jay-Z's "Roc Boys"), 3++(heppy), 4, 6+++(This should be on the best soundtrack ever), 7++, 8+, 10+++(See 6)
