Totally groovy! This is one of the more excellent little compilations we've heard lately – and it's a very hip, very mod, very fab batch of 60s-oriented grooves from London's landmark Blow Up Club! The groove is somewhere in between Austin Powers, 70s funk, and Memphis soul – and the set blends together a very tasty batch of tracks that aren't normally the sort that show up in our funky compilations section! There's plenty of Hammond and guitar grooves – but also a fab batch of vocal tracks that mix together soul, easy, and rock tunes. Titles include "Bongolia" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Sahara 72" by Bobby Hughes Experience, "I'm A Man" by Spencer Davis, "Sweet Pea" by Soul Hooligan, "Bert's Apple Crumble" by The Quik, "Watts Breakaway" by Jonny Otis Show, "Exploration" by Karminsky Experience, "The Beat Goes On" by Buddy
Rich, "25 Miles
" by Edwin Starr, "She's Got Everything" by The Kinks, "Le Responsable" by Jacques Dutronc, "Soul Time" by Shirley Ellis, "Psychedelic Sally" by Eddie Jefferson, "Cloud Nine" by Mongo Santamaria, and "Somebody Stole My Thunder" by Georgie Fame. Groovy, BABY!
