Buddy Miles Express - Expressway To Your Skull (1968)


During my last guest hosting gig on WeFunk, my partner Rawsoul dropped a single from the Buddy Miles Express debut album called Train that made me feel like I was getting run over by said locomotive. 

I recognized the big sample from a hip hop track and was super surprised to learn it was Buddy Miles.
