Speaking of funky, have you heard the Betty Davis reissues? Nasty funk. I'm going to write up They Say I'm Different over at Soundslope soon.

I haven't yet, Dan, though DJ Goldfinger in Toronto used to spin the originals all the time. I was actually looking to see if we'd gotten the reissues in at the station, but I didn't find them.
