  • 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…
  • Eddie Bo pseudonym recording taken from a one-off Janus 45: One of my favorite jazz standards done by Rhoda Scott:
  • Great find with the Judge's Nephews. The only one I have found of theirs is the more easy to come by third self titled album from 1977.
  • I motherfucking enjoyed it! Everything works so well: the soundtrack which weaves in and out of every scene effectively (original music by Scott Bomar of the Bo-Keys too), the costumes (Ruth Carter returns to her seemingly favorite decade once again…

  • Got my tickets for the now sold out New Beverly screening next Tuesday featuring an appearance by the writing duo of Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander. Looking forward to it.

  • Deep funk again: Billy taking us to church. He did this on a few gospel records I know of where he has a cameo performance: No rhythm section with drums either but still hot: And speaking of hot organ solos which pop up unexpectedly (1:23) …
  • I skipped the local swap meet this month to make the drive up to San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay to do some fishing, sightseeing and hit some record shops for cheap finds. Stanley Cowell is a later repress of his '69 debut. Hugo Strasser has competent…
  • This is the tune which plays in my head every time I have to make an important decision: Back when smoking cigarettes was sexy and even good for you. RJR, my initials!: Ultra rare Ed Townsend produced 45: Tribute to Jimmy McGriff:
  • ppadilha said: a friend in NYC named his son Zap. I always thought it deserved an exclamation mark. Reminds me of Zap Rowsdower of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame (@1:20)
  • I recently met a woman named Marie-Dominique at my job. I wouldn't say it's messed up. It's quite beautiful but unusual to me. Reminds me of nuns.
  • Thanks to the Louisianan producer himself who hooked me up with a copy years back out of generosity.
  • No love for "Virtuosity"?!? Or the one with the runaway train? Haha! All the best actors make absolute garbage watchable. Respect. "Malcolm X" has been one of my favorite historical biopics since an extra credit essay assignment in junior high.
  • $5 finds at the record store down the street. Mary Watkins is nice 80s fusion jazz from the usually bland Palo Alto label, Sammy Nestico aside. Victory Chapel Gospel Band is self pressed and based in Southern California. It is partially Santana insp…
  • ketan said: What this all about?: Too bad about the really frightening lost footage.https://lostmediawiki.com/Event_Horizon_(partially_found_unreleased_130-minute_cut_of_film;_1997) Speaking of crap sequels in space, I remember it was short l…
  • Mine was 40 some LPs around the corner from where I grew up; near Los Angeles Valley College and the old KPOL station, from a guy who bulk bought from both collections. Two standouts were Blowfly's "On TV" and The Cult's "Mail Must Go Through". Pean…
  • I was 14 at the time. I wanted to see it when it opened in theaters, but my mom and I settled on that goofy Alien sequel instead because it was her birthday and she was creeped out by the original when she was a teenager. I didn't see "Dark City" un…
  • "When The Last Sword Is Drawn" and "Event Horizon" (one of the better sci-fi horror films of the mid 90s. Too bad about the really frightening lost footage.). "Elite Squad" was cool and so was "Fist Of The North Star", although I didn't care for the…
  • $2 finds from yesterday. Ice is a sealed dupe/upgrade.

  • I saw "Come Drink With Me" for the first time earlier this week. Interesting how Asian movies had the arterial blood spray years before Americans even started with bright red tempura paint and squibs. Then "Water Margin" this weekend. I like the sce…
  • One of my first gateways to New Orleans music. The cover art of "Gris Gris" is one of my favorites. I found "Desitively Bonnaroo" this weekend which has "Stealin'" (great George Porter bassline!) and this:

  • I'm a fan of those Firesign Theater albums you always see at the thrift. "Everything You Know Is Wrong", their send-up of conspiracy theorists, ancient alien proponents and such, is my favorite. "Rebus Canebus" as a parody of Evel Knievel, pot smoki…
  • I don't have anything to say about the lyrics but this is another one of those intriguing "soundtrack exists but movie does not or is lost" records such as "Hit 'Em Hard", "Tecato", "White Salt And Sunshine"/"Challenge of the Salt", "Perfect Match",…
  • Some more: I like MGJ and Seventh Wave's other LPs which I found a while ago, so I'm glad I found these. I have been noticing Sam Rivers (the only other one I have is "Sizzle") and Julius Hemphill (the side-long "Hard Blues" seems to have a pres…
  • 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. Fireball…
  • 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 …
