Listen: Fred You Ought to be Dead

This track by James Davis is on our 20th Anniversary compilation, We Are the Music Makers!, as well as Davis’ album on the Music Maker label, Georgia Drumbeat. I was just discussing with our new board member Nick about how James Davis’ album, Georgia Drumbeat, would sound so great on vinyl. I have to take his word for it, because I don’t actually have a record player, but I do know I love this track from James Davis – not just for the title, which admittedly catches my attention – but for its driving rhythms and funky style. I’ll listen to James Davis however I can!
