Sunday Soul - All Your Goodies Are Gone

Here are two of Michigan's finest soul musicians (legendary Funk Brothers guitarist Dennis Coffey and relative newcomer Mayer Hawthorne) collaborating on a cover of a classic Parliament track, All Your Goodies Are Gone. The studio version of this interpretation can be found on Coffey's upcoming self-titled release hitting shelves later this month from Strut Records. Perhaps best known for his breakbeat classic Scorpio, Coffey was instrumental not just in creating funky instrumentals, but also for incorporating the wah wah guitar sound into soul music in the 60's. On his upcoming albums, Coffey does a handful of interpretations (including Wilson Picket's Don't Knock My Love, 100 Proof Aged In Soul's Somebody’s Been Sleeping (In My Bed), and the above video), as well as some new originals. All together, just more proof that Coffey's guitar is pretty darn funky.
