Catch 22


By request, here's a re-up of a rough but rockin' live document of a mystery L.A. band. Just who were they and where are they now?

... and here is their four-song EP.

Tribe


What was Pickwick on about when they made this record? "Let's pick some songs from the tail end of the Beatles career and then grab a few from their first solo releases!" I can see why they'd choose Paul's "Maybe I'm Amazed" and George's "My Sweet Lord," but what were they thinking when they recorded John's "Mother" and Yoko's "Why"? (Um, she wasn't a member of the Fab Four, remember?) A very cool, very strange album.

Speaking of Pickwick, would anyone have "Sounds Like Stevie Wonder Vol. II" by the Motor City Rollers? If so, please put a link in the comments.

Mas Que Nada


Ueber-rare import comp of great A&M bossa tunes. Hopefully this will bring a little sweetness as we mourn the passing of Prince.

Incidentally Yours


In celebration of Record Store Day, I'm releasing an album of new songs. You'd do Ol' Mondo a solid if you'd head over to his Bandcamp page (link below), download the record and make a contribution (any decent amount). Proceeds will go toward putting food on my table and buying exploito records to be posted here. Peace, y'all.

H.B. Barnum


Fresh vinyl rip (pops and all) of this nifty vocal record by H.B. Barnum, who sounds at times a bit like Nat "King" Cole. Produced by David Axelrod, natch.

Juarez


Unclassifiable (in a good way) record that features such Wrecking Crew folks as Joe Osborne, Hal Blaine, Larry Knechtel as well as James Burton.

The Little Big Horns


A real rare one that I came across a few weeks ago. I'd never even heard of the label, Crazy Horse, which was distributed by Capitol. Don't know much about it, but it features Bobby Keyes and is produced by Chuck Mangione. What do you think?

The Man With the Glass Head


The infection was spread so easily
From one clammy hand to the next
It'd gone viral all around the world
Just like some scandalous text
And we were astonished and we were amazed
And we were perplexed
