Classic style funky soul from Daptone supergroup the Menahan Street Band
– featuring members of the Dap-Kings, El Michels Affair, and Budos Band
– and a killer guest vocal by Charles Bradley! "The Telephone Song" sounds like a lost soul nugget, from the gritty 70 style instrumentation to the old school telephone sound effect that kicks it off – with Charles's achingly soul vocals in full control. The flip side is essentially the instrumental version, titled as "Tired Of Fighting" as it appears on the Menahan Street Band
's Make The Road By Walking. The very embodiment of the neo classic funky soul sound!
