Question from Tolo: “there’s a song that’s been hunting me for days, I think you wrote about it but my memories are hazy. It’s a funk soul number (early 70s?) that DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist used to play. I remember the lyrics saying something like “he’s number one.” Sorry, I realize this is pretty vague.”
A: That’s actually more than enough info, you’re talking about this song:

Thanks! It’s actually the Reuben Bell’s number, although it’s probable my memories were mixed up.
This is the post I was talking about:
Does this have any relation to the “Funky Black Man” song by Earnest (forget his last name)?
It’s the same music, dunno if it’s the same label though.
Great Funky beat.
