Hey, speaking of 'What's Going On' cover versions, here's another
, from Mr. Clean and the Soul Inc. I don't know any more about them than that they appear on this Funk Spectrum
And here's a version
from Rahsaan Roland Kirk
, the crazy genius blind multi-reedist jazz musician.
And here's Weevie's 'Pickit Line Dub
.' This is from an album subtitled 'Deep Soul in Dub.' It's definitely modern, as much electronic as dub, and very crate-digger-ish. To quote a turntablelab review of a different album, think DJ Shadow plus Wesleyan University.
Last but not least, here's the 'Detroit Mix'
of 'What's Going On.'
Apparently, Gordy rejected it, or somesuch. What do I know?
