40 Year Itch : This Much Madness

Jack Nicholson by Harry Benson, 1975

   After parting ways with Motown and The Temptations, producer Norman Whitfield started his own label, Whitfield Records, and devoted his attention and genius towards fellow Motown refugees The Undisputed Truth ( "Smiling Faces Sometimes"). From 1975's Cosmic Truth comes this psychedelic and funky cover of Neil Young's "Down By the River". There were five session players credited with playing guitar on the album including Dennis Coffey and Melvin "Wah Wah" Ragin, so I dont know who's playing the smoking lines on this tune.
