Ha!  There's usually a button marked "off" somewhere!  The trick is not to have an accident falling over some household object in one's haste to reach it!

Sunshine of your Love, by Spanky Wilson.

Ooh yes, that’s great!

I can think of a few other Cream tracks that would benefit from a funk’n’soul treatment in the same way.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

This one is brilliant, not for the quality of the vocals but just for the passion.

Here's one that's a little more esoteric.

I've been enjoying Pomplamoose (a canadian band) for a while, I may well have nominated one of their covers earlier in these pages.

This, though, is chanson - one of George Brassens tunes, Je me suis fait tout petit (I make myself small) which takes on a whole new level of darkness sung by a girl. I've gone looking for a translation in case anyone is interested http://brassenswithenglish.blogspot.com/2008/02/je-me-suis-fait-tout-petit_08.html

Not exactly funk’n’soul, but this is well worth a listen:

So. Imagine that Jeff Beck had contributed to the writing of 'Superstition', and he'd recorded a live version in 1973, as a trio, in the style of Cream.

There are later versions with Jeff and Stevie.

Fortunate Son - 38 Special

https://youtu.be/RzuIb8J4AQQ

Yes that is Ronnie Van Zant's brother. Unfortunately in the 80s 38 Special turned into a stadium rock band in the mode of Journey but worse.

I can't remember if I put this up earlier, bit some of the comments are a delight--especially from the person who didn't get the joke at all.
