Recently...


Freda Payne - Band of Gold \ The Easiest Way to Fall 7" (Invictus) 1970



^Sweet 70s soul from the gorgeous Freda Payne. But crate diggers might be more interested in the sample from JVC Force's "Strong Island" in the first 8 seconds of this song...







The Stovall Sisters - Hang On In There / Sweepin' Through The City (Mono Promo) 7" (Reprise) 1971



^My joint on this seven is the blisteringly fast funk track "Hang On In There" from the raspy lead vocalist of the Stovall Sisters...







Reta Ray - Volume 1 and Volume 2 7" Boxsets (Par-Dee Records) 1940s





^I bought these on a whim because they really don't exist anywhere and I was intrigued by the description of the music by Dustygroove as "off-color 1940s humor".

My God, off color must be pretty bad back in the forties, so I jumped on it hoping there would be some decent ridiculous sampleables on this somewhere. Turns out it's just a lot of scat-like rhyming bad jokes about women being horny, like "I'm Just a Bad Girl" and "They Can't Make a Lady Out of Me" and songs about Chinese immigrants and, something Donald Trump would enjoy, "Latin Love Is Not for Me" which is a song basically about Mexicans being lazy.

Sadly, there are no usable samples in this, it's just music for dead people. It's basically a collection of relics from a time when lounge music sucked balls and that thankfully is long gone.

I did however, find an interesting resource on the "Naughty Nightingale" as I was trying to learn more about it.

A few more recently released sevens of the blunted funk variety...


Wake & Bake! - Funky Blue Beard / Funkie Pie 7" (Tramp Records) 2007



This Russian funk combo likes to start the day off right! Real nice instrumental Hammond soul on this.







Benjamin Herman - Skunkaholic / Haze 7" (Benjamin Herman) 2005



^I like this joint even more. This dude from the Netherlands self released this spacy funky jazz seven. Real groovy stuff man! Yah mon





^This reminds me... maybe I should do a strictly grass related 45 mix one of these days, maybe that's never been done before and by golly there's gotta be a niche market out there for that somewhere. DJ

Last 2 for today...


Little Willie John - Don't play With Love 7" (Jukebox Jam Series) 2013



^I always thought this guy was one of the most slept on of the James Brown affiliates on King Records. I have a couple of his old sevens on King, and when I was searching for a different 7" single from the seller that sold me those blunted funk sevens I stumbled across this and knew it had to be included on that order. I pressed play on the youtube clip and I was hooked...





^Maybe I should have put this in the new Soul thread because this guy just KILLS it on vocals.



Kevin Kiner - Star Wars Rebel's Theme and (Flux Pavillion Remix) Pic Disc 7" (2015) Disney Records



^Ok, I'll admit, I pretty much bought this to look at it. Surprise, surprise, the EDM style remix is actually pretty dope. Not that it sounds Mo-Fi quality but it sounds pretty good for a picture disc.

Plus, posting it here gives me an excuse to bust out these smileys... darth vador boba fett yoda thumbs up

The Star Spangles - Which of the two of us is gonna burn this house down?
Capital records- 2003

This is a band I miss dearly. When this came out it quickly became somewhat of an anthem for me and a couple close friends. They were from Manhattan and didn't last long. I think they split up around 2008 after a second album. Anyway, these guys kind of reminded me of d generation meets the sleazy side of the stones. I miss these guys and from time to time I try to look around to see if they are up to anything, but sadly I always come up empty. Check out Bazooka. Unfortunately never released on vinyl. A couple of listens to this and it'll be stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
