Sitar Grooves: Al Green - "Something"

Another look at how that traditional Indian instrument the sitar has infiltrated modern popular music. Often used to signify exoticism or psychedelia, many soul acts in the 70s worked out how sensual the sitar could sound. Producer Willie Mitchell is one of those, and he uses the sitar beautifully here on Al Green's wonderful "Something", lending the track an extra layer of intoxicating, sexy elegance. Enjoy.
