Clips & Pix: Tommy Castro & The Painkillers/Soul Shake

Over the weekend, I came across this smoking hot soulful boogie rocker Soul Shake performed by Tommy Castro & The Painkillers. If this doesn’t get you moving, frankly, I don’t know what will!

Apparently co-written by songwriters Margaret Lewis and Mira Ann Smith, the tune was first recorded by Peggy Scott and Jo Jo Benson in 1969. It was also covered by Delaney & Bonnie on their fourth studio album To Bonnie From Delaney, released in September 1970.

Castro & The Painkillers included the song on Stompin’ Ground, their most recent studio album that appeared in September 2017. I understand the entire record is soul-oriented rock, which sounds like right up my alley, so I’m going to further check it out.
