Very nice. Sounds like a old-fashioned country song then you start catching words like "asshole" and "sushi". Lovely when it gets all instrumenty about three and a half minutes in.

I have that on CD and there's more cover versions on it then I thought, including a 21 minutes cover of Smokey Robinson's "Get Ready" (I'm on my way, but not really in a hurry to get there - or so it seems).
Should we call this funk-rock?

"Rare Earth - Motown's funkiest white band"

"Rare Earth’s music straddles genres and defies categorisation, slipping seamlessly between the two seemingly disparate worlds of classic rock and R&B. This careful balancing act is a rarity even now and was a near impossibility in the colour-segregated 60s when Rare Earth began their journey. Groundbreakers and pioneers, this post-racial band should have been the first of many. Instead, they remained one of a kind."
