On his new solo album the Godfather Of Detroit Rock 'N Soul returns R&B music to the garage. Scott Morgan has been doing the same thing with that type of music since the mid-'60s. With the Rationals he scored a major regional hit by garage-ifying (and/or punk-ifying) Otis Redding's 'Respect' before Aretha recorded her now-legendary version. He later did the same thing with Sonic's Rendezvous Band, the legendary Detroit group that also featured Fred Sonic Smith of the MC5 and Scott Asheton of the Stooges.
Scott Morgan was a pioneer of the form, doing it before it was a conscious and deliberate career choice.
