If It Feels Good It's Alright!  

Abaco Dream was a one off project circa 1970 by Bay Area soul legend Sylvester Stewart AKA Sly and the Family Stone. Not much is known about the project, but it is assumed that it was a way to try out a different sound. This is funky soul tune is proto-disco at its best. It comes on with so much authority and kills. I have no idea what G and A stands for so if anyone does, please let us know.

    Thanks a bunch man...I've only heard the Chairman of the Board version of this song. This is definitely raw!

    I was going to say, I think (or at least have assumed) that the "G&A" refers to musical notes/chords used in the song. I don't have perfect pitch but those two notes used for the "duh duh da duh da duh da duh da" sound like G & A chords respectively (and thats only two notes)...

    I was thinking that this might be the case, but I am hoping there is a more cryptic answer.

    I had no idea Joe Hicks covered the tune. I'll try to find it.
