A beautiful single from Bob & Gene on a funky 45 from Ever-Soul/Dapton ! "It's Not What You Know (It's Who You Know)" and "These Lonely Nights" are both apparantly from the Bob & Gene vaults, which gives us hope that there may be another album's worthy of great material that could pop up! The former kind off calls out social injustices in the lyricism, but it's a stripped down soul tune at it's core. "These Lonely Nights" is a nicely raw feel to it with great vocals and an insistent groove to it. (Comes in a great pic sleeve, too!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Ever-Soul/Daptone, Early 70s/2012. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet Jamaican-tinged take on this tune by Bob & Gene – one that features the duo's vocals set to grooves from the Inversions, a group led by Ticklah – all in a style that turns the soul track into a lost rocksteady number! The approach is mighty nice – strange at first, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

The first funky outing we've ever heard from The Budos Band – but a really tasty funky set, with a raw and stripped-down feel! "Up From The South" is a chugging, churning mass of snapping drum breaks and scratchy guitar – topped by a well-crafted horn part that comes in as ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stroll (pts 1 & 2)
Daptone, 2009. New Copy
An uptempo funk gem from Binky Griptite – guitarist for the Dap-Kings, so you know he has true school funk & soul in his blood, but he's also a pretty effective vocalist – totally driving it home on "The Stroll"! "The Stroll" is straight up, unambiguously about ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
