…loosely translated means “I’m outta here, it ain’t no thing.” As I mentioned in a prior post, “Pasado,” is a phenomenal slow jam from the 70s by a group called The Pockets – an 8-man (yes, 8!) band out of Baltimore. Earth, Wind and Fire discovered them and The Pockets opened for EWF a number of times. Too bad they didn’t make it big like EWF, but with 8 people, it was probably tough.
Anyway, I’m not really a fan of covers, but The Pockets “Pasado” is actually a remake of an older version by the Five Stairsteps. I think the cover is far superior. And I like the snippet of synthesizer they used, even though the instrument conjures up bad memories of soulless 80s synth-pop. Let me know what you think!
