MP3 - "Seven Minutes of Funk" by Tyrone Thomas and the Whole Darn Family. Like the British say, it does what it says on the tin - a seven minute encapsulation of 70s era funk. Irresistable, omnipresent Bootsy Collins-esque bass line? Check. Meandering yet still rhythmic keyboard noodling? Check. Succinct horn punctuation? Check. Flute solo? Check. This was later the basis for one of the best rap singles of all time, "It's My Thing" by EPMD.
