Memphis Soul Stew
King Curtis Lyrics

Today's special is Memphis Soul Stew
We sell so much of this, people wonder what we put in it
We gonna tell you right now
Give me about a half a teacup of bass

Now I need a pound of fatback drums

Now give me four tablespoons of boiling Memphis guitars
This goin' taste alright

Now just a little pinch of organ

Now give me a half a pint of horn

Place on the burner and bring to a boil
That's it, that's it, that's it right there.
Now beat, well.

Back in the day when I was in a horn band, if you couldn't play this tune you could not get a gig.

Never was suppressed: The icon of Soul Sax in the late 60's. His sound has never been surpassed. Lenny Pickett owes his salary to this man and he knows it. Food for the hungry and the best and monster-hottest tenor in the Pantheon.

I'd have that for breakfast, lunch and dinner any day of the week, forever!
