Daily Find – Little Girl Sing Ting-A-Ling (Ding-A-Ling) by Dave Bartholomew – Rare Risque R&B Blues 45
Daily Discovery - Little Girl Sing Ting-A-Ling (Ding-A-Ling) b/w Who Drank The Beer While I Was In The Rear by Dave Bartholomew - Rare R&B Blues 45 on Imperial Records #5210
My Ding-A-Ling is probably the most famous of all the Risque R&B Rockers from the 1950's. It was released in 1952, I have known this record for years I just didn't know who sang the original. It was later changed to Toy Bell by The Bees who were also on Imperial Records. The Bees released a vocal group version in 1954 with slightly different lyrics but shares same concept, look it up if you don't know it, it's killer. I have the Chuck Berry version which was released in the 1970's. To my surprise, I found this in one of my boxes of records that I have had for a year or so. As much as I love to dig in other peoples collections, it's awesome to dig in my own vaults and pull gems like this one. I appreciate you checking out my ding a ling, have fun!
Daily Discovery - Every Brother Ain't A Brother by Panache - Rare Modern Soul Boogie 12" on RR Records #1212
A funky, mellow tune to start the weekend off right. Tough to find anywhere, but this Brooklyn, New York single is even harder to find out here on the west coast. Just about in the middle is my favorite part. Dawud & Lance get together in the park to pick up on some ladies and listen to "Panache", in the middle of the song they run into the girl who turns them down. "Look at that girl", "There she is, what you doin' here baby?" The girl answers, "Smurfin". "Smurfin? Hahaha". The girl says "I bet ya'll can't Smurf" Love it! Killer groove.
Daily Discovery - It's So Hard by Melvin And Leon - Rare Los Angeles R&B Soul 45 on Marv Records #101. Flip side is "Everything About You".
A cautionary tale. This one goes out to the guys who work hard everyday, just to give their money to their girl at the end of the week. Now that's what I call love with a price tag and an emotional hangover to boot. What ever happened to money can't buy love?. Melvin and Leon's pain is our gain as we hear his frustration on this tough to find underground Los Angeles gem.
Daily Discovery - All In One by The 3 Blue Jays - Rare Beat Ballad Northern Soul 45 on Triode Records #106. Flip side is "Bicycle Ride".
A wicked, stomping little beat with vibes, horns and distorted haunting backing vocals. The lead singer is enticing you with an almost sensual feel to get on the dance floor to do his dance. The name of his dance? The "All In One" which is a mixture of different dances he calls out, the monkey, the twist and the chicken. Listening to and letting my imagination run wild I can totally picture him in the middle of the dance floor in his crisp pressed suit, crazy moves and smooth powerful vocals driving the women wild one dance at a time. This is a relatively unknown beat ballad on the same Triode label that released the legendary Northern Soul "I'm Coming Over" record by Johnny Honeycutt.
Daily Discovery - Hello Stranger by Darius - Rare Los Angeles Northern Soul b/w Psychedelic 45 on Chartmaker Records #419. Flip side is "I Don't Mind".
This little known gem has been in my collection for years, I must share this with you so you can decide which version your favorite. Barbara Lewis, Capitols or Darius. Tough choice but this amazing cover is my favorite version of Hello Stranger. Do you agree?
Daily Discovery - Hey Love by Mr. Clean & The Soul Inc. - Rare Group Sweet Soul 45 on Radio City #500. Flip side "I Bet He Don't Love You"
Extremely rare record from San Diego California. This is the same Radio City label that Rosey Grier's New Yorkers Northern Soul classic was released on. Both sides on this record are Group Soul gold with an incredible cover of the Intruders, "I Bet He Don't Love You" and "Hey Love" which I originally thought was a cover of the Stevie Wonder classic but turned out to be very different upon listening again. "Hey Love" is a cover of the song originally sung by the Rotary Connection and was written by Charles Stepney and Richard Rudolph.
Daily Discovery - Stop And Think by Lowell Fulsom feat. Leon Blue & Band - R&B Soul 45 on Movin' Records #128. Flip side "Baby" R&B Blues cut. Great two sider.
Los Angeles R&B Soul Blues label. I am the type of guy who jumps into things quickly so this is a great reminder to slow down. Nice uptempo groove.
Daily Discovery - Peace Love & Happiness by Peace Love & Happiness. Killer Los Angeles Group Soul 45 on the Abab label. Possibly sampled by Tupac or Dr. Dre for 2pac. Anyone have any info on this?
Daily Discovery - I'll Never Forget You by Mystic. Extremely Rare Chicano Soul Lp from Chicago on A.R.T. records #100. That's The Kind Of Love is another Sweet Soul must have of this Lp. Has a couple Modern Soul Boogie cuts also.
