Boss Drag

CD (Item 615816) Liberty (Japan), Mid 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 10

Raucous drag strip rockers and driving R&B-fueled instrumentals by The T-Bones – killer material on Liberty from a group of young session wizards – including Hal Blaine, Glen Campbell, Leon Russell, Dave Pell, Steve Douglas and others! It's wildly fun stuff that goes all in with the drag strip novelty – but totally transcends it – with some rubber-burning, rumbling excellence! Killer guitars, sax, organ drums from a one-time relatively anonymous cast of players. Includes "Hey Little Cobra", "Shut Down", "Drag City", "Draggin'", "Scorchin", "Little Deuce Coupe", "Boss Drag" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Uni/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy Gatefold
We don't know much about the duo of Paul Vigrass and Gary Osborne, but they come together here with a wonderful harmony sound – a mode that's somewhere between the A&M work of Lambert & Nuttycombe, and maybe the best America albums of the 70s – set to these great arrangements ... CD
Vertigo/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
A really great solo record from Gordon Waller – way way different than any of the 60s music he made as half of the Peter & Gordon duo – with a mature, rootsy vibe that really holds up all the way through! The notes point out that Waller's a farmer at the time of recording – ... CD
Lonely Surfer
Reprise (Japan), 1963. New Copy
A haunting LP of classic LA studio instrumental tracks, arranged and conducted by one of the most twisted figures to come out of that city's music scene in the 60s! One the surface, this stuff is just a serene batch of covers like "Ebb Tide", "Magnificent Seven", and "Stran ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1964. New Copy
Andrew Oldham proves once again that his 60s pop music reach is wider than most – by taking on a whole host of tunes from artists he doesn't even have signed to contracts! The set's one of the most jaunty of the instrumental albums that Oldham recorded under his own name – and it ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
An amazing second foray into the world of punk rock 45s – and the British chapter to the previous American volume from Soul Jazz! Like the first set, the track selection here is superb – no overdone punk "oldies" or overplayed classics – and instead a great range of ... CD
Spark/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Rare gems from the late 60s UK Spark label – a small imprint founded by the Southern Music publishing company, as their own outlet for some of the cool compositions in their catalog! Many of these tracks were recorded in the basement of the company's London offices – often by the same ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
Our first-ever look at the unique pop scene in mid 70s Iceland – a batch of work that hardly ever got any global exposure at the time – but which really stands alongside some of the grooviest bits from other European nations in the decade! Lots of these cuts offer up a cool, compressed ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
A wonderful overview of the career of singer/songwriter Biff Rose – a true American genius we'd place in a category that few others can match! Rose has a style that's folksy, yet far hipper than folk – a biting, laugh-at-itself sort of approach that's never silly, but relaxedly poetic ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1979. New Copy
Glorious power pop from South London – driving work from the Exits! The spectre of early Elvis Costello hovers over The Exits, particularly in the vocal department – but the uber catchy hooks and buzzing guitars have more of an all purpose sheen. Strong stuff from the power pop ... CD
Columbia/Rev-Ola (UK), 1969. New Copy
Great work from The Peanut Butter Conspiracy – even tighter and more groove-happy than previous records – with a very hip blend of mod soul influences underneath their Sunshine Pop sound! There's a lot of Hammond bubbling up in the rhythms here, and the drums are nicely forceful too ... CD
Stiff/RPM (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
A great anthology of Rachel Sweet's entire Stiff Records output – including the complete Fool Around and Protect The Innocent LPs – plus tracks from rare 45s and hard-to-find compilations! We're surprised Rachel didn't breakout in a bigger way. Like fellow Stiff-ers Devo, she's ... CD
Ginger Baker's Air Force
Atco/Lemon (UK), 1970. New Copy
Out of the wreckage of Cream came some very hip grooves! Ginger Baker was the hippest of the group's 3 members – and although he's often credited by soul fans for his work with Fela, he should also get a hats off for his work with the group Air Force – essentially a 10-piece (which ... CD
