That's How Strong My Love Is

Check out Tracy Fontes singing a powerful rendition of "That's How Strong My Love Is." The Roosevelt Jamison composition is usually associated with Otis Redding, but was first recorded by O.V. Wright on the Goldwax label, in 1964, when Jamison was Wright's manager.

Mark Purrington moves on

We wish our drummer Mark Purrington great success as he leaves the Chicken Slacks to concentrate on his studies. Mark has been in the band for 2 1/2 years, and his great chops have pushed the groove and pumped the funk to our great satisfaction. He's always had an enthusiastic spirit; he's been a joy to work with.

And did you know he's a great golfer?

Mark: we expect you to visit the Cantab now and then!
