Now this is a mighty fine slab of soul that should satisfy all your Wednesday lunchtime groove requirements. Anybody who is not in complete emotional meltdown after listening to the first track, simply has no soul. If you are unaffected by Sister Irma's voice, I suggest that you should donate your body to science - now! Your incredibly small sacrifice could help us discover the cause of soullessness and could lead to the groovification of billions of people throughout the world.
