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 - The Scene Of The Crime by Jud Conlon Singers with Bob Thompson's Orchestra - Ghostly 1950's Pop 45 on Zephyr Records #70-015. The flip side is the ghostly "Bridge Of Sighs". So many love stories lead to "Scene Of The Crime".
Daily Discovery - Headless Nightmare by Villagers - Creepy R&R 45. Odd Folk R&R on Petal Records #1410. The storm, thunder, wind, decapitation, howls, screams makes for a good Halloween record.
Daily Discovery - Girls by Young Hearts. Killer Group Soul. Classic Los Angeles Soul b/w Sweet Soul Shakin' a Crossover Soul cut. I have known this for years and know I must pass on the enjoyment to you if you don't already have the pleasure of knowing this amazing record. Enjoy!
Daily Discovery - Big Boy by Jackson Five. Michael Jackson and the Jacksons first record it is pre-Motown. This 45 rpm single was on Steeltown records out of Gary, Indiana and released in 1967.
Daily Discovery - We're Working Hard by Highway Q.C.'s. Group Gospel at it's finest, right on the cusp of Group Soul. I love the vocal harmony even in the grunts and groans. Beautiful!
Daily Discovery - My Man's An Undertaker by Dinah Washington. The sheer song title should freak you out. "My man's an undertaker and he's got a coffin just your size". Don't mess with the Queen! Dinah was best know for "What A Difference A Day Makes. Wicked R&B Jazz vocals.
Daily Discovery - Ghost Riders In The Sky by Scat Man Crothers. Nice Jazz version of this Country cowboy standard. I love his very slight twist on the classic "bookety bookety boop" and breathing into the mic toward the end of the clip.
Daily Discovery - Daddy-O by Bonnie Lou. It was pretty rare back in the 50's to have a female Rockabilly artist but Bonnie Lou is definitely a good one. King #4835 on the newspaper print label. This one is from 1955. Another tune for the fathers out there. Happy Fathers Day!
