  • February Finds

    Some are from a couple of local shops but a majority were found at the Pasadena Swap Meet on Sunday. Sometimes it's one of those Jack McDuff kind of weeks. How many versions of "Surfboard" did he have; four? "Funky '69" comp is essentially an Alvin Cash album - and it's a Japanese press. I like early 70s Shirelles' "Sunday Dreamin'" but have never heard this cover. Family Cat is another one of those major label one-offers. Shango's second LP has a different sound, West Coast hard rock which fits comfortably in the Dunhill catalog, than their ecclectic, faux-Carribean sound on their debut with the minor hit "Day After Day". "Disco Sound Special" is a Japanese double LP with one record of originals and the other by cover bands including Black Buster who have a number of disco exploitation records. I think they are Filipino and not Japanese, though.

    E Arenas signed at concert. Stetsa is what got me into hip hop as a kid but I never had it on vinyl. Seen that Salvation in dollar bins forever but haven't felt like picking one up until now.  The best thing about Kings is the cover.

    Eddie Palmieri is a Venezuelan press. The McDuff is where he plays with British musicians; has "Hunk O Funk". I gave the Tommy Jones to someone here during one of those Strut meet-ups back when, forgot about it and then found it recently. Fireballs has a GOOMLW cover. I saw them play at the Baked Potato years ago. The Banister is very good trio jazz but doesn't contain anything like the moog-out from his other one.
  • Old movies you've only seen recently...

    I'm listening to the incidental music on the soundtrack to "3 In The Attic" now. I remember "Scarface" on TBS as well. "Where'd you get the beauty scar, tough guy? Eating pineapple?"

    "Koyaanisqatsi" and "Powaqqatsi": Thankfully, I somehow over the years managed to be completely unfamiliar with these two aside skimming over a glowing Leonard Maltin review in one of his books from several years ago. It's a visually arresting journey.
