Daily Discovery - The Queen Of Sheba b/w Hot Licks by Floyd Dixon - Funk 45 on Inculcation Records #47191
Mellow but funky, sought after and tough to find Los Angeles Funk / Modern Soul record. Has a primitive sound to it, which is what I like about it. Even though it's over 5 minutes long it doesn't drag, which is more than you can say for a lot of songs of the same length. Enjoy this tune with middle east feel to it and escape to ancient Egypt for a few minutes at least.
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.
