Elijah And The Ebonies – Hot Grits!

Elijah And The Ebonies - Hot Grits!

The more perceptive among you will probably notice that I’m a day later than normal with my update this week (though at least you’re getting an update, eh?). One of these weeks I may return close to my “usual” Monday evening slot but for now I’ll just have to bring you something when I get the chance.

Today’s selection is to be filed under the “genuine double sider” heading. It’s the a-side I’m focusing on this week though (rather unusually for me!) with the ultra-catchy “Hot Grits”. I remember hearing this tune quite a long time ago and picking up a copy quite quickly and cheaply. Released on Bill Moss’ “Capsoul” label in 1974 this track gained a bit more attention when it was featured on the excellent Numero Group’s “Eccentric Soul” compilation a few years ago.

The flipside features a cover of label owner Moss’ “Sock It To ‘Em Soul Brother” another 45 in my collection that I might feature for you some time. For now though, enjoy the rest of your weekend and get down with Hot Grits!!
