  "Yeah, Yeah", by the mysterious Memphis underground group Blackrock, was originally recorded in 1969 and released as a 45 RPM 7" single. It's become a cult classic and been sampled by artists such as The Black Keys, Royce Da 5'9, The Roots, and Snow. (It's believed that Jay-Z also recorded a track featuring the sample which has never been released.) Formed by two session musicians from Stax Records (Archie Turner, Cornell McFadden) and two session musicians from Hi Records (Willie Pettis, Kurt Dudley), Blackrock appeared for a short time on the Memphis music scene, and it's believed that they first performed at the 1970 Memphis Country Blues Festival at what was then the Overton Park Shell, sharing the line-up with Sid Selvidge, Electric Blues Watermelon, Furry Lewis and Bukka White, among others. They recorded two incredible sides of a 45 single for the Select-O-Hits label in North Memphis. "Yeah, Yeah" was an amazing slab of funk with a rock-hard foundation of drumming provided by McFadden. The flip side "Bad Cloud Overhead" was more dark and foreboding, with lyrics about the drug culture and "gettin busted." Both singles were edited out of a longer continuous performance that had been recorded. Both appear on this RSD 2018 release, along with an extended version of "Yeah Yeah" and an unreleased track.
