Big Sam's Funk Nation "The man can blow some bone and incite a crowd. He doesn’t allow anyone to kick back and observe. He demands interaction and loyalty to the groove. This is participatory – all calculated to leave you feeling good about yourself and physically drained. [...] This is what people with complicated days and short attention spans beg for." -, Bill King -, Bill King
