The Commodores – Machine Gun (Live on Soul Train in 1974)
Here’s The Commodores ripping through the instrumental and title track off their first album, Machine Gun. They’re playing “Machine Gun” on Soul Train, but it sounds nothing like the Hendrix tune of the same name. It’s just a funky instrumental. About 1:50 in, if you listen real careful, you’ll hear a Beastie Boys sample. See if you can place it.
