    what a coincidence, i'm enjoying 'beer:30' with a corona and a few 45s.
    If I can only pick five, here they are:






    nothing like a latin groove on a summer's day. Appropriately titled, too.


    'Get Ya Some' is just great.

    I wish I had a double for ya. Luckily I found it trawling on the 'bay....seller had some crazy title for his auction & 0 feedback, so I took a chance....thankfully it showed up in one piece, even though he threw it in a padded envelope and nothing else..??..

    I wouldn't call it latin funk....nice and bass heavy, vibes, and someone whistles over most of it. Vibes bit is just great. They really live up to the 'swing' in their band name...almost bought a Johnny Zamot 'Spaced Out' 45, too, until I was quoted $150. Ouch!

    IMO, its really mediocre all around. It has a super wack cover of "Gimme Good Loving". BUT, that song "Dr. Doo Wah" is fucking BLAZE!!! So that makes it Okay.
