Song of the Day: The Emotions - Blind Alley

I first came across this song courtesy of the Stax: The Soul of Hip Hop compilation that came out last year.  The album includes songs that are sampled in multiple hip hop songs, some more subtly than others.  I initially was hooked on how awesome the voices of the women sound together, but the sampling is from the drum beat.  Listen closely and I guarantee you'll recognize the drums from other hip hop or R&B songs, but this song on its own is just a great early '70s R&B cut.
