Betty Davis’s funk banger “If I’m In Luck I Might Get Picked Up,” culled from her 1973 self-titled LP. I caught this jam at a party last weekend, hearing it for what must have been the first time in over a year. There is a reason Betty, Miles Davis’s second wife, is credited with greatly influencing her husband’s funk trajectory—that reason can be heard within this track’s four minutes and fifty six seconds. If you’re new to Betty, and feeling this, check out the (relatively) recent reissues of her first two records.
