Bluff City heat indeed… watch a mini-doc, below.

Memphis soul men The Bo-Keys will release two vinyl/digital-only 45s today on Electraphonic Recordings. The band joins with legendary vocalists Spencer Wiggings and Percy Wiggins for a deep soul rendition of the Dan Penn and Chips Moman classic hit “At The Dark End of the Street.” B-side “Wind Up Monkey” sounds like a lost, funky instrumental cut from Stax or Duke/Peacock, which debuted yesterday at Wax Poetics: http://www.waxpoetics.com/music/new-music-blog/the-bo-keys
The Bo-Keys also teamed up with soul powerhouse Percy Wiggins to bring you their other new single steeped in the Bluff City heat, the original “I Need More Than One Lifetime.” The B-side is a funky instrumental take on Ennio Morricone’s cult Western film theme “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.”
