"I barely even knew anything at all about this band until recently.As most of you probably are aware of,Otis Day&The Knights were the fictional house band in the frat classic 'Animal House' movie.I've recently seen them play the oldies circuit co-headlining with the Kingsmen("Louie Louie")and I thought lead vocalist DeWayne Jessie sort of reminded me of like an Ike Turner wanna-be.The show as well as this CD is decently performed R&B.Cannot believe that only one other patron had reviwed this release.Somewhat happening tracks include "Function At The Junction",the Isley Brother's nugget "Shout" and "Shamalamma Ding Dong".Not sure as to which artists originally penned out the cuts on this disc,but I think most if not all may be cover tunes.No matter,'Shout',Otis Day&The Knight's sole album isn't bad.Might appeal to fans of Booker T.Jones,Sam&Dave,Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett.Check it out."
