Sounds of Six Pack
Ok, we're done pouting. Thanks for your patience, and we've got another Six Pack of vinyl love for y'all today.
Next week we'll be back in the swing of things with a review of the fantastic new Michael Tarbox record, a piece on the City Champs (who we get to see opening for the North Mississippi Allstars this weekend), news about a new festival y'all should check out, plus some other goodies.
Now for the vinyl happiness! Six random songs culled from our vinyl stash. Every week we're buying more vinyl, and digitizing our old records, so god only knows what you're gonna get.
Today it's a whole plethora of yummy. Sun Ra kicks off the festivities with an outer space groove, featuring vocals by noted interplanetary traveler, Yochanan. Quintron follows up with an organ-drenched holler at the glory days of the roller skating rink. No, really. The Puffy Areolas kick things up a notch with a nasty little trash stomper. After that little neck breaker, Don and Dewey give us a happy little R'n'B'er about, well, you know. Bantam Rooster steps to the plate with a glorious two-man punk-blues junker. And Bahaman
Blues master, Joseph Spence takes us out with a little gospel glory.
Collect 'em all!
