Primitive Sound System at Maxwell's - Tuesday January 4th

Hello Y'all,
Happy New Year to all! It looks like we‚re starting off the New Year without an internet connection at home, lucky us. Seems the router may have bit the big one, who knows. In any case I will be back at Maxwell's this Tuesday with some Christmas gifts in tow. I'm writing this at the end of my work day and not at home so I have no idea what I am bringing tomorrow. I do remember pulling a pretty varied mix of Punk and Soul/Funk 45's as well as some funky, loungey grooves for the LPs (think Michel Legrand "The Boston Wrangler"). The following records came in the mail while I was on holiday so I know they will be in the box mingling with the other party goers.

Tom and Jerroo - "(Papa Chew) Do The Boo-Ga-Loo" Part 1 and 2 (Jerry-O Records cat. JO 111)
Heavy Heavy Boo-Ga-Loo with a nice drum break and roll. The ever soulful Mr. Jerry-O strikes again.

The Souljers - "Chinese Checkers" b/w "Poochum" (Rampart cat. 45-ATE-97)
Both sides have a hand clapping party feel with crowd sounds. The oddly named "Poochum" has a bit more swing in its gate and a thumping drumbeat worthy of any 60's flick dance scene. The dirty horn line at the end tells you that your Mom may not be happy to know this is the sort of place you frequent.

Benny Gordon - "Sugar Mama" Part 1 & 2 (Estill cat. A-1000)
Benny tells us about his lady over a soulful little vamp; almost that Motown sound. Simple, sweet and damn groovy.

- pat.
