Rummaging through the boxes for a tune I haven't spun in a while and I pulled out this great 45 by The Ohio Players (yes, those Ohio Players) on the Compass label, "Trespassin'".

A tightly wound groover, "Trespassin'" has this great guitar line with just a touch of effect on it. Then there is the percussion, like the well placed tambourine and the bit of conga under it all (that I just noticed - and I've only had the 45 for 8 years!). The horns add such a powerful punch, whether it's the quick stabs or the full sound of the chorus. And then there are the lyrics....about trespassing.....which I'll leave to the song itself. Check a soundclip here.
