Mustang Sally

Gene Dozier & The Brotherhood

Minit 32031

Unusual cover of the Mack Rice song by Gene Dozier & The Brotherhood, which were Ike Turner's band in 1966/1967, with Gene Dozier on keyboards

Ugene Lloyd Dozier (who also wrote and recorded under the name Billy Jackson) got his start in Philadelphia working at Cameo records. By the mid-60’s he had relocated to Detroit where he had wanted to work for Motown, but ended up working briefly at the Golden World label writing for Theresa Lindsey (‘Daddy-O’) and Pat Lewis (‘Let’s Get Together’) under the Jackson name. He soon found his way to the West Coast, where he signed with the Minit label and began recording as Gene Dozier & The Brotherhood. The Brotherhood sound was mostly instrumental, marked by a funky rhythm section backed by a full horn section, with Dozier composing, arranging and playing keyboards
