Funky Friday - Hanky Spanky

I'm a terror for a cover, and this selection taken from Spanky Wilson's 1968 album(or '69 - the date seems to switch from site to site) 'Doin It', are all high flying fatback funk-outs.

If you're not familiar with her name, you'll certainly know some of Spanky's musical chums and collaborators - Jazz and Soul heavy hitters like Duke Ellington, Lalo Schifrin, Marvin Gaye, Willie Bobo, Jimmy Smith and Sammy Davis, Jr - and more recently The Quantic Soul Orchestra for her 2006 album 'I'm Thankful'.

I first heard Spanky's re-fitted and re-funked verion of 'Sunshine' by way of Tom Middleton's impeccably eclectic and electrifyingly mixed The Trip (which has the strongest opening run of any comp' ever!)

'Sunshine Of Your Love'

'Light My Fire'


Three decades later and she's still 'Doin It' - with the same snap, spank and sparkle.

Spanky Wilson and The Quantic Soul Orchestra- 'You'

Top choices!!

Spanky Wilson is highly underated!
Her version of Kissing my love and also Don't joke with a hungry man are others worth checking out IMHO.

Keep on keepin' on!

Spanky Wilson, my, my, you've done it again! 'You' is on at home now (4th time in a row).

I almost loaded up a clip of Spanky doing 'Don't Joke' with the Quantics - s'here if you fancy a peep

RE - Nice to know it's grooving your boots, I would really recommend grabbing a copy of the Tom Mid' album The Trip as mentioned in this blog bit - I guarantee you'll love it.

Nice one (yet again)! I've not heard much of Spanky Wilson but these are very good indeed. And her voice has stood up amazingly well.

Cheers for the mention too - the more people listening to Fontella Bass the better!

Outstanding, PM!

Top flight selections, as always.

Check her new album out - you can do it via the 'I'm Thankful' link in the posting - it really is super duper funky (and the Tom Middleton album is a must grab too)

Spanky is HOT!!!!! Been searching for that record for years. First got turned on to her whilst listening to Paul Weller spin some of his 45's on a BBC radio show. Nice to see she's still bringin' it after all these years. Hope all is well on Planet Mondo!!!

Peace and SOUL,
