James & Bobby Purify were cousins from Florida. They appeared on the charts in 1966, with this Top Ten hit, “I’m Your Puppet.” The background musicians were known as the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section (MSRS), which featured the inspired drumming of Roger Howkins, one of the most tasteful and soulful drummers in the history of rock music. As Roger would say, “Lay back – and burn!”
