Click below for a Winstons sample:

Amen Brother

 
Little known Washington DC group.  Members were Ray Maritano (sax), Sonny Peckrol (bass), Quincy Mattison (guitar), Richard Spencer (vocals), and Phil Tolotta (keys).   They had a hit with "Color Him Father" in 1969, but they will forever be known for the flip side, "Amen Brother."  The source of so many drum and bass songs that an entire subgenre called "Amen breaks" has been created, G.C. Coleman's drum solo has been chopped up by dozens of producers.  B-side wins again!
