The Henry Jackson Company: I’m So Thankful (Extended Intro/Bridge edit)
From S/T (Gospel Truth, 1973)
This Jackson LP has one of easier gospel funk cuts to track down; a slick, Southern soul influenced cooker (this is on Gospel Truth, which means that the rhythm section was likely drawn from Stax/Volt session players). The original LP version does have a little breakbeat to open it plus that groovin’ bridge but in case I ever wanted to DJ out with this, I did a quick/dirty edit to extend the intro break into 8 bars instead of 4 and did the same with the bridge. It doesn’t sound forced (hopefully). I call it…enhanced.
