A few weeks ago, I was driving on the small back roads of Tennessee and decided to stop at a Goodwill in Shelbyville, TN.
I quickly flipped through their records and found a copy of Ramsey Lewis’ Sun Goddess LP. I grabbed it and headed home.
Since then I can’t stop listening to Ramsey’s cover of Stevie Wonder’s Living for the City. It’s a funky five minute jam that will brighten your day.
I’ve been listening to a lot of Earth, Wind & Fire this year and it turns out Maurice White and the band teamed up with Ramsey to back him up on this album. That probably explains why it grabbed my ear immediately.
I’m glad I found this album for $1 in small town Tennessee.
