Rare Tejano R&B from The Wetbacks – a knowingly seedy number if there ever was one – backed by "Summertime" by the Spot Barnett Orchestra – rare tracks issued on San Antonio's Wildcat label and paired up on this great single courtesy Drop Shadow Records! "Jose Jimenez (Part 1)" has a loose, dusty Tex-Mex guitar groove, shout-along vocals and really walloping drums! It peaks with some great interplay between the sax and guitar. "Summertime" is a nice take on the George Gershwin classic with a loose, but killer groove by the Spot Barnett Orchestra.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Reesis/Beeturia
Austin Boogie Crew, 2014. New Copy
"Reesis" is a sweet bit of instrumental electro funk from Solar Shield – almost a small combo version of an 80s track by Zapp – but retooled for a funky 45 sort of sound! Keyboards are great – and really take off on "Beeturia" – a tune with an equally ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tramp (Germany), 2004. New Copy
Nothin But A Party – but what a party it is! The track's a non-stop groover that rolls like a train out of control – drums chasing bass chasing horns all over the place – as the track fast-riffs out a groove that's amazingly tight for the speed at which it's taken! The group ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tramp (Germany), 2008. New Copy
Very spacey funk from Lucky Brown – a mixture of slow-stepping bass, muddy drums, and some very cool keyboard bits – all sewn together with a surprisingly deep horn part on the top! There's a nicely percolating feel to the rhythms, but they sit back nicely in the mix and let the other ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Art Yard (UK), 1973. New Copy
Previously unreleased material from the legendary Salah Ragab – two tracks of exotic, jazzy grooves! "Tribute To Sun Ra" is a cut that Ra would have loved – a jaunty little groover that has some angular horns on the top – very "Eastern" in feel, over a romping ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
