Daily Discovery - I Started To Run b/w You're Leaving by Joe Williams - Rare R&B Northern Soul 45 on Alpha Records #622
Ridiculous, raw chain gang style folk R&B with a Northern Soul beat. I don't do it often but I can't stop playing this record. Listened to it 8 times back to back. Blown away by this obscure haunting Los Angeles produced tune.
Daily Discovery - Aphrodisiac b/w same by Billy Joe & The Tokes - Latin Soul Instrumental 45 on Dore Records #884
A chill, seldom seen, almost instrumental with East Los Angeles flavor.
Daily Discovery - Coming (Comeing) Home Baby b/w Surfers Lament by The Mysterians - Rare Surf 45 acetate
The Mysterians are definitely that, a mystery. Crude Surf Rocker that starts off beat, although that gives this unknown record some charm. I really dig this tune. Does anyone know anything about this group?
Daily Discovery - Shadrack b/w His Eye On The Sparrow by Norman Brooks - Uptempo Gospel 45 on S&N Records #1701
The story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is a new one on me. A cool story that sounds even better when set to some funky organ, guitar and a simple uptempo light drum beat. The rise and fall of smooth vocals that can really be heard when the break comes 3/4 of the way through the song. Gospel sweet Gospel with a touch of Soul.
Daily Discovery - Fine Girl b/w Never Let Me Go by Ree Flores & The Duprell's - Chicano Northern Soul / Doowop 45 on Chelan Records #556
Tough to find!
Daily Discovery - Gangster Boogie M.C. M.C.'s (street version) - (radio version) b/w Maniac - Early Rap 12" single on Place To Be Records #1414
Raw early Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Rap. Damn this is dope...I'll let this one speak for itself. Enjoy!
THE TEEN QUEENS
Original art by Fazzio LP cover artist for Crown Records. Does anyone know anything about Fazzio? This does not belong to me, although if you are interested in this
and about 20 other Fazzio original paintings I can put you in contact with their current owner.
Daily Discovery - I Won't Be Your Fool b/w My Love Is Real by Little Joe Hinton - Northern Soul 45 on Arvee Records #5028
A Los Angeles Northern Soul R&B tune. Horns galore not only start this stomping dancer, they drive it. It leaves me feeling Little Joe's sense of urgency in repairing his broken relationship. A shouting ultimatum from a voice that means business. A vocal chord tearing, yet heartfelt plea to his baby. The pains of a lovers heart. Enjoy!
