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.

Jazzman (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Two sweet redskinned grooves – both almost novelty numbers, but with a wickedly sharp sound too! "Mr Custer Stomp" is a raw gritty guitar instrumental – clearly an answer to the hit "Mr Custer", but served up here with a lot more twang upfront, and just some ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
