This one’s been sitting around in the posting queue for too long. Might as well be done with it.

THIS should be entirely awesome once the grafts heal. Jack it up, flare the fenders, give it some oversize wheels with custom baby moons and paint it flat black; then tint the windows, toss in some neon and a sound system that plays nothing but R&B and funk instrumentals, and the pavement will rock.
The Crows‘ “Gee” from 1953 may have been the first R&B crossover hit, and it was a B side experiment. Ike Turner earned the prize for the first rock and roll hit “Rocket 88” in 1951, recording as Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats . Y’all have heard that classic, or should have by now, and James Cotton did a kickass version.
More recently Dan Akroyd took a shot at it and pulled it off.
Have a great weekend, folks.
