New Finds

Hello Y'all,

I haven't posted new finds in a while and thought I would since I did quite well at this past weekend at the DC's Tavern First Staurday Record Swap. Most are from the past week or so.

Black Crack:

Syl Johnson - "Take Me to The River" - (HI Records 45) - Raw feel version. My favorite of all the versions.

Irene and the Scotts - "Stuck on You Baby" (Smash Records 45) - Never heard this before. Kickin' R&B Soul groover.

KISS - 4 picture disc Gene Simmons interview - What can I say, when "HE" speaks we all must listen.

Muhammad Ali - "I'm the Greatest" b/w instrumental - Again, when "HE" speaks we all must listen. Isn't worship great.

Junior Wells - "Junior's Groove" and "I'm Gonna Cramp Your Style" (45s on Bright Star) Funky sides from Junior Wells. Tracks that eventually became part of the Blue Rock LP. A must have if you like your Blues - Chicago, electric or funky.

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings - "Genuine Pt 1 and 2" - (Daptone Records) - Diggin' in on this slow burn punch in the face funky tune.

Charles Bradley and the Bullets - "Now That I'm Gone" b/w "Can't Stop Thinking About You" - (Daptone Records) - One of the heaviest new funk 45s and that is saying something considering the competition. DAMN HEAVY.

El Michel's Affair - "Detroit Twice" - (On Daptone subsidiary Misty) - Soul-Jazzy and funky when it wants to be. Nice lead into "People Make the World Go Round" - Stylistics.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - "Glorified Magnified" LP - Getting back to the heavy rock.

Moody Blues - GO NOW! - LP (London Records) - Classic 60's Garage

Les Brown - How Brown Sounds Now - (BASF LP) - Lounge with an edge. A contradiction yes but some cool tunes here.

Basie - S/T (Cleff Records) - Nice clean original copy for $2

5" Tin Crack:

Inside the Special Pillow - Former indie Rock stars elevate themselves to God-like status. Another record that makes me ask why doesn't everyone own a copy. This is a very very Special Pillow.

Flex Unger - Little Music for Little People (Black Rhombus Sound System) - Received this today (021104) and have listened to it twice. Great stuff. Beats, sounds, loops, trumpet and even vocals.
