  • Magdy El-Housseni:
  • The only one I can think of at the moment is Marek Grechuta's first album. He was popular in Poland at the time, but I've never heard of him before I found it in the dollar bins. https://www.discogs.com/Marek-Grechuta-Droga-Za-Widnokres/master/4533…
  • What a coincidence...I just realized only a couple weeks ago that the woman from Freez is Ingrid, who did the version of "Easter Parade" on one of the Ultimate Breaks & Beats volumes. Here's my suggestions off the top:
  • I liked HC's enthusiasm for everything Texas. In this cynical age, I think everyone is a "conspiracy theorist" to some degree. Rockadelic is another knowledgeable guy who got some flack if I recall but at the end of the day its all jokes. Even off-t…
  • Funny shit. I have to try that with my mother's Alexa.  Update: Nope, she doesn't go for that. Gives me the silent treatment. And I tried well known ones like "Ain't No" and "Shame On A".
  • I read on Wiki:"The helicopter...circled over Glendale during the flight." So that's what woke me this morning. I headed out to fish soon after and I noticed the "fog" was disgusting today. It notoriously gets thick around the mountains in Calabasa…

  • Congratulations! I saw "Ford vs. Ferrari" last night at the Egyptian Theater. It was two and a half hours well spent and I would recommend it to someone even if he or she is not a car enthusiast. I have cursory knowledge of auto racing, for the mos…
  • ppadilha said: I needed A LOT of hot sauce to make it go down. That's the only way to do it! Bitter, salt and spice are the only things my tongue registers, so I'm used to drowning everything in Dave's Insanity Sauce and such. Guisados and…
  • I was born without a sense of smell so I don't know but supposedly its offset by vinegar or lime juice then boiling and rinsing twice. Chichi Wang of Serious Eats has lots of good recipes.
  • Those Italian library tunes are great! Reminds me when my Dad and I attended those annual Formula One races in Long Beach. Here's my weekend Goodwill run, with the exception of Reverberi which was a gift from a friend among others. "Halcyon Days" …
  • The "Nitecap" tune is out of Atlanta and was put on Numero's Tragar & Note label comp.  The only Australian new funk outfit I was aware of is the Bamboos and Karate Boogaloo, the later which I have heard of only recently because of material fro…
  • From the swap meet today.
  • From a soundtrack that pops up once in a while here in Los Angeles.
  • All the best to the Strut collective and a happy 2020 as well. I did the family thing on Sunday; huge breakfast with my mother and brother and his wife. It felt odd that this was the first Christmas without my Dad who passed in January. Anyhow, I …
  • "Angels" is a compilation of themes from British televison programs. It has "Quiller", "The Liver Birds" (also with open drums) and the title track theme which is "Motivation" by Alan Parker. There's others from the KPM stable too. "Jim'll Fix It",…
  • "It's bigger on the inside!" I'm all about the ninja style sneak leak. Done it many times pier fishing at the beach. That in itself is a win. Pier fishing, that is: no license and then food and bait for days if you get the tides right for the five …
  • I like Wynder K Frog. Both  "Out Of The Frying Pan" ("Tequila") and "Into The Fire" ("Howl in Wolf's Clothing" = "Smokestack Lightning") albums are worth hunting down. I woke up to this today
  • I just attended a slideshow presentation hosted by Roger Steffens of Family Acid at a nearby venue as a promotion for his new book. Wild stuff. The man certainly likes his double exposures, weed and reggae. Check it out. https://ozmarecords.com/pag…
  • From the UK. This 45 is their only recorded output and is very rare. Wait until the middle.
  • The theme from "Stiletto", which is a fun* movie worth checking out *Awkward description redacted ;)
  • These Juan Torres Y Su Organo Melodico records here are like the Mexican hits o' the day equivalent to Three Suns, Ray Conniff, Fausto Papetti, etc. What my parents would call "ice skating rink music". This one is nice, though:
  • All shot with my cheap LG phone at various places in Los Angeles. Soon I'll upgrade to a real cam like the Canon EOS before I take a road trip to Utah, Wyoming and Idaho early next year.l
  • BSM and Yma Sumac are psychedelic anomalies compared to the rest of their previous albums. Miguel Cruz is personal label salsa and rhumba soul. Grapefruit is one-off major label psych. LAVC Studio Jazz Band '74 has a version of Pat Williams' "On T…
  • Lord Jamar must like the sound of his own voice. 
  • Weekend so far...
  • Hammond Italian Style: 
  • The Ed Thigpen (US issue on GNP, not the original Swedish one), Ed Robinson (previously thought that "Hey Blackman" one-off 45 was his only output) and the Wildflowers volume four were found at DJ Muggs' record collection sell off. Had to sift throu…
  • The Southern California meetups at various record stores, DJ nights and swap meets a decade ago (!?!) were fun; trading records and hanging out with Crink, Dizzy, Thes, Guzzo, Asprin, Drez, Yuichi, Shig, Einstein and various east coast regulars like…
