Mama's Got A Bag Of Her Own

I was playing an old CD in the car on the way home from work today, and this tune came on. I remember hearing this for the first time, being amazed, and immediately started tracking ot down. Aa I'm sure you figured out, this tune is an answer to James Brown's "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag".

"Mama's Got A Bag of Her Own" is a r'n'b shouter of the highest order. Nothing fancy, just Anna belting it out over a steady groove. I'm particularly partial to the piano behind her during the opening lines, but, when the horns come in, it really starts to pick up steam. Damn good.

Have a listen to some of it here.
