Booker T & The MG’s: “Soul Limbo” (Letterman Performance)
Will Lee has been sharing some pretty cool videos lately, like this one of Booker T & The MG’s performing on Letterman.
Will tells the story:
“Did somebody say ‘More Cowbell’? After this, you’ll want less! Here’s ‘Soul Limbo’ with Booker T & The MG’s on Letterman. One of their coolest hits, kind of a Soca rhythm-based piece. I volunteered to channel my ‘inner Ralph MacDonald’ and play cowbell. It was a big honor to stand behind one of my bass mentors, Duck Dunn and get to hear him up close. The man was steady as a rock, always! The cowbell part was originally performed by Isaac Hayes, I believe! This song has gotten around; In England, the BBC used it as the theme for cricket matches.”
