Sippin' a Cup of Coffee
The Ordells Sippin' a Cup of Coffee b/w Big Dom 45 (Dionn, 1967)
"Oh oh oh! A-ah! Ummmmmm" That is exactly what I said when I dropped the needle on this one. From the accent on the first beat followed by the slow string drag I knew that this was gonna be a killer. The background vocals moan and then the falsetto slides in. The slow dreamy pace together with string swells and jabs, gorgeous vocals, and a muted trumpet that sits in the back and sounds like a car horn way in the distance: Add that all up and it is one of the best moody soul songs ever.
And that is not all. Flip this pup and hear a great funky, seat of the pants instrumental.
A perfect record!!!
On the other side the writing is
"sex ton" & "sexton." Probably the original owner's name.
Thanks very much! 2 Great tracks that go great together.
My office server wouldn't let me email you back.
Thanks again. I'll keep reading.
