The 80s were a great time for us all, right? This week recalls fond memories of the past with Robert Palmer’s cover of Earl King’s 1960 hit “Trick Bag.”

Both versions are full of their respective era’s trademark sound which makes for a great comparison between musical styles. It seems like the slap bass replaced the horn section somewhere along the way.

Check out both versions below!
