"Aside from musicians, record collectors and D.J.'s, the name Clyde Stubblefield does not make many ears perk up. But no matter who you are, you probably know his drumming."

Its a story we've all heard before, but it still makes the heckles stand up on my neck that such a creative and talented musician could go to his grave unknown, when so many have taken the credit for his music.

Ah! The Folk Process! Seriously though, this is the stuff of musical legend, like The Amen Break, without which where would we be?

Good post, Lox. Earl Palmer played drums on dozens of hit songs and stood up and insisted that sidemen should be recognized for their contribution to music.
Mr.Stubblefield's situation is another example of the lack of credit given to such players.

Reminds me of the film "Standing On The Shoulders Of Motown", where an interviewer asks people in a record store whether they like the music of Motown. They all say yes - but when asked if they know who the musicians were the Funk Brothers), they all have no idea.

Great film, by the way - made just before some of the guys died, luckily.

I've also got that DVD, Will...until I bought it I wouldn't have been able to name even one of the Funk Brothers.

Everyone should just take a listen to this clip. Watch it to the end for an exemplary lesson in musical dynamics

Joan Osborne with the Funk Brothers

Joan Osborne's does a cracking job of the song! I first heard her on the Transatlantic Sessions - hearing her on the Motown film was a real ear-opener!

The Jimmy Ruffin original was pretty good but that version blows it out of the water...
