Diamond in the Back, Sunroof Top
We’re always on the lookout for late summer grooves, and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James just turned us onto one of the best ones we’ve heard in quite some time. In BlackBook’s summer roadtrip roundup, he recommends scoring a southern drive with a single soul jam, played over and over and over: William DeVaughn’s “Be Thankful For What You’ve Got.” And after keeping it on repeat for a solid 20 minutes, we’d have to concur.
The only problem? They forgot to provide a playable version. Luckily, we’re happy to oblige. Sunroof not included.
