Brother SoulTrain Song/Mr Boogie ... 7-inch
Fraternity, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A train grinds to a halt at the top of this sweet funky gem – then the band leaps into a non-stop groove that's totally outta sight! While the JBs may cross the tracks, these guys take over the whole train line – and slide down the rails with effortless easy – in this joyous funky mode that has congas riffing at fast time underneath tight horns – all while a wah-wah guitar carves out a snakey funky line in the middle! "Mister Boogie" is plenty funky too – with these tight snapping drums that are faster than the usual break, but at a level that really blows us away with their timing and power – even once the tune's badass guitar solo comes into the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Spanish Town Skabeats/Prince Buster All StarsStop That Train/Dark Destroyer ... 7-inch
Soulsville Center/Rockashacka (Japan), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Very cool work from The Spanish Town Skabeats – an early Prince Buster combo who work here with bold horns, and this cool mix of male and female vocal in the lead – which creates a vibe that's pretty unique, even during these highly creative years of Jamaican music! "Dark Destroyer" is more Buster at his early best – a cut that has this strongly jazzy sensibility in both the sax and the trumpet, even though the overall groove is pure rocksteady! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hugh MasekelaPuffin' On Down The Track/Do Me So La So So ... 7-inch
Uni, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Great work from the funky trumpeter! "Puffin' On Down The Track" is one of Hugh's best from the time – and starts with this mad train whistle, snapping rhythms, and skittish guitar – really setting the pace for the chunky groove of the tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Uni sleeve, with jukebox title card.)
