December 28, 2008: Danny White - "Natural Soul Brother"

"You got to be a winner / And a go-getter"

I dedicate the Greatest Song of Today to the NFC North Champion Minnesota Vikings, who managed to make the playoffs without backing in.

As for Danny White, he is a true legend of New Orleans R&B and, of course, virtually unknown outside of soul music nerd circles. This particular song appears on two essential collections: the New Orleans Funk Vol. 1 compilation on Soul Jazz Records and the Danny White singles collection Natural Soul Brother on Kent Records.
