The Mighty Earl Young

Boom-Chaka-Doong! The sound of the Mighty Earl Young, king of the 3 shot drum fill into jabbing, dicing grooves. You’ve heard him on the O’Jays “Back Stabbers”, MFSB’s “T.S.O.P.” (theme for Soul Train), Delfonics “Didin’t I Blow Your Mind” and countless other tracks out of Philly. The snare is always smacking and the fills sparse, leaving plenty girth for the groove. If you don’t like his feel, you gotta hole in your soul:
