New Orleans native King Floyd may be a one-hit wonder, but what an enduring hit it is. "Groove Me" is one the hallmark southern songs of the 70s, with its opening exclamation of "hey!" and grooving bassline. The song was recorded at the Malaco studios in Mississippi, which gave Atlantic yet another outpost for its soul artists. Malaco benefited by developing a strong reputation, one that eventually led to forming its own label, which has released titles like the immortal Down Home Blues collection.

He died March 6, 2006.
