Thank you, Bob Lefsetz!
Found this track through Bob’s (mostly) excellent e-mail newsletter. Will Lee, longtime bassist for David Letterman’s house band Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra (aka The World’s Most Dangerous Band), got ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and New Orleans funkmaster Allen Toussaint together for a take on Toussaint’s “Get Out Of My Life Woman” that Lefsetz correctly asserts is better than anything on ZZ Top’s last album.
It’s certainly one of the best rock tracks I’ve heard all year.
Links (iTunes, CDBaby and Amazon) to get Will’s new album Love, Gratitude and Other Distractions are on his website.
