Indeed it is. In an area best known for bluegrass and southern rock comes this slab of synth laden funk. The Tazewell/Bluefield VA area is rich in musical history and culture, but I dare to say there's not much "funk" to be found. Could it be a song written to cash in on a trend? Probably, but they did one hell of a job (The B side ballad shows that they probably should have stuck with R&B). The Average White Band did one thing, their three degree of separation copycats at least were a bit more interesting. Check out the organ as well, it's very tasty.
