Vinyl? Check! #42: B Side Wins Again

October 28, 2009

Leon Haywood revitalized Carl Carlton’s career with the Grammy nominated ode to the female form, She’s a Bad Mama Jama. As usual, the B-Side has an equally dope tune although much more subdued than She’s a Bad Mama Jama. The Leon Haywood produced flip, This Feeling’s Rated X-Tra, puts me in the mind of Tyrone Davis’ 1975 classic In the Mood. It’s primarily the horns and the guitar licks but also just the mellow midtempo smoothness of the track. Leon cut an alternate version of the track on his 1975 Come and Get Yourself Some album that you can check out HERE
