Lick This!

Bob Marley & The Wailers: Lick Samba

A sound system favorite from 1971, Bob captures the sound of the Caribbean with this good time classic. The punchy organ drives the rhythm home. This particular mix can be found on the amazing Songs of Freedom compilation.

James Brown: Licking Stick-Licking Stick

JB Funk times 100 from 1969. I love those clicking drums and the guitar is absolutely hypnotizing. Get it this cut on Star Time.

Beastie Boys: Finger Lickin' Good

The Beasties at the height of their powers. Get it on 1992's Check Your Head.
