Mayer Hawthorne and Kings Go Forth join Dennis Coffey

Funk Brothers guitar legend Dennis Coffey has released two of the best tracks from his new album on a single. Mayer Hawthorne is enlisted for a cover of The Parliaments’ All Your Goodies Are Gone (it’s pretty faithful to the original, but that’s Hawthorne’s shtick; and Coffey did play on The Parliaments’ previous single in 1967, (I Wanna) Testify, so he knows the score).

Kings Go Forth – funk’s finest contemporary band – share writing duties with Coffey on Miss Millie, so you’ve got psychedelic soul, breakbeats, driving Hammond organ, and blaring horns the sweet side of sweaty.
