March Wind

“Do the Sweetback” (Stax) 1972


Released in the same year as labelmate Melvin Van Peebles’s epochal Sweet Sweetback soundtrack, March Wind’s lone 45 may have served as a Sweetback-repping cross-promotional effort, or merely as a coincidentally titled dance-floor exhortation. Certainly the minimal lyrics provide few clues. In either case, March Wind gave Stax a minor hit with their kinetic funk burner.
