|MP3 Size||2.45 MB (estimated)|
An almost proto-metal chugger from Stax Records! In 1964 The Mar-Keys' rhythm section, guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn, and drummer Terry Johnston, set out on their own for this stripped down shaker that really digs in. The trio started working on the riff in high school and brought the idea back to the table years later when they were top Stax studio hitmakers. They didn't sell many of these and this would be The Cobras' only record.
'That I was sort of a pickup of where the high school band had left off," recalled Cropper. "'Restless' was actually written when we were in high school. We had actually demoed it in Jim's garage or at least out in Brunswick, Tennessee. It was sort of a takeoff on a Link Wray kind of idea. I think we were just kind of satisfying our egos. We'd just say, 'We want to do this.' 'Okay, fine, you want to do this, go play with it: We'd go in and cut these things and then what do you do, put them on the shelf and forget about them? No, we'd put them out. It was a pressing bill and we had enough hits to back it up so it was not a bad shot." (Complete Stax Volt liner notes)

You're listening to my daily addition to the New York Night Train Party Platter playlist. Each track here is recorded directly from the original 45 (no bootlegs, reproductions, etc) to give you an idea of what the real deal authentic vinyl sounds like. COME BACK EVERY DAY FOR A NEW FIX! Because the records pass so quickly at my dance parties, this channel is an attempt to stop and focus on one record at a time in hopes that it'll turn you on to the artists, tracks, labels, etc. I'm just hipping myself to a lot of these records for the first time as well - so you can view this as our journey to learning more about cool old records together! But mostly I hope this music moves you as much as it moves me.
Get your enjoys,
