Story

The late, great Linda Hornbuckle had been Portland's top "soul diva" for some time before she recorded her first CD: this "meeting" with the Paul deLay Band.  (Paul deLay was incarcerated at the time.)  This track is a funky arrangement of Hound Dog, featuring the deLay band's "horn section": B-3 & tenor sax.  I developed this approach in the early 70's, playing in Bay Area soul bands with just one horn.  Saxophonist Dan Fincher and I took the solos here, while Peter Dammann (guitar), Ben Jones (bass),and Brian Foxworth (drums) laid down that funky groove.  Guest percussionist Bobby Torres helped with the arrangement.  As for Linda, she was, well, Linda!
