They don’t call him “the world’s oldest teenager” for nothing. Rufus Thomas had been in show business for over three decades when these tunes were cut, but he’d lost none of his youthful spunk and managed to capture the ears and feet of teen and grown folk alike during the early Seventies with his unique brand of humor-laced, bass-pumping Memphis funk. Included here is his biggest hit--the soul chart-topping “(Do the) Push and Pull”--along with the subsequent smashes “The Breakdown” and “Do the Funky Penguin” and Thomas-ized treatments of the New Orleans r&b classics “I Know (You Don’t Want Me No More)” and “Tutti Frutti.” Daughter Carla Thomas adds her plaintive tones to two tracks.
