The Exotics - Come With Me

The Exotics
Come With Me
Tad - 2410
Wow! This is one great record. The Exotics were a Dallas area garage band featuring some of the same personnel as the Floyd Dakil combo of "Dance Franny Dance" fame. This has got to be the greatest combination of fuzz guitar and organ I've ever heard anywhere. Devastating...

Loosen These Pains and Let Me Go - Albert Washington

Here's Georgia born gospel/soul singer, guitarist Albert Washington on Jewel records from 1965, or is it 1971? My guide book says '71, but the 1965 copyright on the label would indicate otherwise. Sounds earlier than '71 too...

Back from Austin... (w/ pics)

Well, the trip to Austin for the record convention was a big success. I bought a bunch of reissue LPs of New Orleans R&B and Soul that once graced my collection but have regrettably left me for one reason or another. I found nearly everything on my wants list, had some great BBQ and picked up a pile of 45s too.

Retail shopping...

The Haul...

I'll be back soon to post some of what I found...
