DIE JOE BOO Ep 2. "Mustang Sally" by Biff Russell at The Half Note, Niseko.
(The Half Note is the home of The Niseko Jazz Trio who play at the weekends. )
I have been lucky enough to living with Biff Russell while in Japan. Biff often plays Americana music at The Half Note bar. Here is his rendition of "Mustang Sally".
"Mustang Sally" is an R&B song written and first recorded by Mack Rice in 1965. It gained greater popularity when Wilson Pickett covered it the following year on a single, a version also released on his 1966 album, The Wicked Pickett. On "The Rascals Anthology" booklet, Felix Cavaliere claims that the Young Rascals actually recorded "Mustang Sally" and "Land of 1000 Dances" before Pickett. He says that Atlantic Records "copped those two songs from them and gave them to Pickett" to record. Pickett did both songs a little faster but the seeds came from the Rascals' versions.
