Lee Dorsey - Yes We Can (1970)

Someone at Rate Your Music said it best: "At one point or another you've most certainly asked yourself what exactly is funk? Surely, you've thought, real funk can't just be a bunch of over-energized showmen strutting back and forth on stage yelling "let's git funkahy!" right? Right. Just like water doesn't have to tell you it's wet, funk doesn't have to tell you it's funky. You can just feel it man, and when you hear the pure hard funk and New Orleans soul of Yes We Can, nothing else really matters."

He goes on to say many other clever things, why this album is what it is, but I guess listening to it will reveal the truth soon enough. All songs written by Allen Toussaint, who also produced this record, with the backing band being The Meters. Can't go wrong. Lee Dorsey is a hero! Even I can't possibly sit still during this record.
