The Final Throwback - Letter D
There's too much good stuff from which to choose right here, so I decided to go with a compilation. If you haven't seen their Unsung episode, I recommend it highly. A portion of their humble beginnings was also featured in the highly-praised 2017 movie Detroit. Here is an interview that aired before the passing of founder Ron Banks.
Secondly, this track by the incomparable David Ruffin is pretty damn funky. Most people (Gen-X and younger) remember Mr. Ruffin from the Temptations biopic but I remember seeing him perform this song on a Soul Train rerun a few years ago. It's pretty memorable.
