A&M - 1455
Here's Quincy Jones' "Streetbeater", otherwise known as the theme from Sanford & Son. I never have heard this all the way through. On the second half of the record, right after the part where it ends on the TV show, is where Quincy and the band really get down! Very cool!

When I Think of You
Capitol - 5903
Did anybody out there know that Twiggy put out a record? I didn't until I found this. Apparently there's a picture sleeve for it too, but sadly it wasn't wrapped around this disc...

Mala - 543
Great track. This is my favorite part of record collecting. I had never heard of this group or song before finding this disc. You may already be familiar with it, but it's toatllay new to me...
p.s. To learn more about this record and The Emperors go here: http://funky16corners.tripod.com/8_emperors.htm
You know, I really should start googling BEFORE I post...

The Clark Gum Shufflers
The Clark Gum Shuffle - Peppermint
Here's a promotional 7" EP from the Clark Gum Company. 4 swinging tunes perfectly suited for dancing the Clark Gum Shuffle. I was excited when I first saw this, thinking it might contain some cheesey late sixties sounds in the style of a low rent Archies. However, what I found was 4 instrumentals more in the style of a low rent Tiajuana Brass. The tune I have selected, "Peppermint" is the most soulful of the bunch. Anybody remember this disc? Anybody remember Clark Gum?
p.s. The disc and sleeve contain absoltely NO information. No band info, no composer credit, no record label or catalogue number and no date. I made up the name Clark Gum Shufflers myself and am simply guessing at the date. Feel free to weigh in if you know anything about this record...
*Update* Alert tipster Cranched hipped me to this youtube video for the Clark Gum Commercial. Turns out it IS the Tiajuana Brass! Be sure and visit his cool blog here: http://cranchedfornow.blogspot.com/ Thanks Cranched!

Back Beat - 548
1965 - '66?
Here's one of my favorite tunes by O.V. Wright. It's taken me a while to come across a clean copy of this one, although it's not particularly rare or pricey. Love it!!

Help Me (pts 1&2)
Atco - 6402
I know Ray Sharpe primarily as a rockabilly artist. His hit "linda Lu" from 59 gives no indication of the sounds that would come along later in his career. Here he is in 1966 on Atco throwing down one very heavy soul groove...
*pts 1&2 have been blended into one track for this post.
