Old funk is good funk


I came across this remix of the Jackson 5 song “I Want You Back” some time ago.  Every so often (as I’m trying to find some funky flavor for something I’m working on) I like to go back and check it out.

I like this remix because it takes the original tracks and exposes them in ways that I haven’t heard before.  Hearing the sublime complexity of the guitar part still blows me away.  I used to think that this was a “simple” song, but hearing the various parts in more detail has completely changed that.  From backing vocals to a stone groove, this is still as funky today as it was when it was released.
