Music Review: “The Claw” From Barrence Whitfield & the Savages’ Under the Savage Sky


TRACK 3

“The Claw”
From Barrence Whitfield & the Savages’ Under the Savage Sky
BLOODSHOT

Liner notes: Powered by honking sax and brutal beats on this raunchy raveup, Barrence Whitfield commands listeners to stop “flapping your jaw” and start dancing.
Behind the music: Born Barry White—no relation to the soul legend—the Bostonite has fronted various versions of the Savages since the ’70s.
Check it out if you like: Greasy rock and roll, from Little Richard to the Sonics and Nick Curran.
