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.
Bill Watrous had a track with a ridiculous drums/synth solo... I think it's "Ayo" off Manhattan Wildlife Refuge. The track is kind of mild jazz funk and then there's a sudden 3 minute moog freakout.
Yeah! I like that one. I found it a month ago. I just found this yesterday for $3 which has a similar track. Blew my mind.
