Electrified People — “Electrified People”: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — March 19, 2022

388) Electrified People — “Electrified People”

After yesterday’s jazz rock instrumental, here is a super-cool pure rock near-instrumental (well, someone does shout a few things like “Hey mama, I don’t need you no more”!). Chris Bishop writes that:

“Electrified People” is a funky instrumental . . . with shameless use of the wah pedal. . . . David Gordon commented below “definitely 1971, issued approx. June / July – the label was based in New York and was connected to DeLite (Kool & the Gang, etc).” . . . The Jimmy Peterson credited on both sides seems to be the same Chicago-based songwriter, producer and singer who cut 45s on Limelight . . . and Chess. . . . [and] wrote or co-wrote many songs, including “Beatle Time” and “This Is the Night” for the Livers (aka the Chicagoans) on Constellation. . . .
