Bubble PuppyGathering Of Promises ... LP
International Artists, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The lone album from the Bubble Puppy – a monumental effort of late 60s hard grooving psychedelia – and one of very best albums to come out of the original Texas psych scene! A couple of the Pup's labelmates at United Artists get a lot of revelry all these years later, and rightfully so – who would argue the importance of The Red Krayola and 13th Floor Elevators – but Bubbly Puppy deserve to be on that top shelf, too. The sound is tight and hard hitting, with trippy lyricism and groovy group harmonies, while the guitars range from cathartic fuzz to some surprisingly pretty melodicism. Not as far out as some of their peers, but the groove is absolutely killer. Titles include the benchmark single "Hot Smoke And Sasafrass", plus "Todd's Tune", "I've Got To Reach You", "Lonely", "Hurry Sundown", "Elizabeth", "It's Safe To Say", "Beginning" and much more.

Golden DawnPower Plant ... LP
International Artists, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs build up slowly, then really pack a punch as their catchier hooks come into play. There's a bit of a late 60s SF rock quality to the record – especially when the vocals get a bit wild – and the guitars ring out nicely with a great rough-edged sound. Titles include "Starvation", "This Way Please", "Evolution", "My Time", "A Nice Surprise", "Tell Me Why", "Reaching Out To You", and "Seeing Is Believing". LP, Vinyl record album

Lost & FoundLost & Found (aka Everybody's Here) ... LP
International Artists, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant set on the legendary International Artists label – a very Love-like record that's filled with colorful tunes – from Houston's Lost & Find, who fit in beautifully with other Texas psyche pioneers of the mid-to-late 60s! Both the vocals and the overall timing of the tunes clearly draw strong inspiration from Love's first few Elektra albums – but that's not a problem for us, because we love that stuff, and really appreciate Lost & Found's take on Arthur Lee's inspiration – one that pushes it a bit into the trippier Texas style psyche and others from the International Artists Roster. Titles include "Everybody's Here", "Forever Lasting Plastic Words","Zig Zag Blues", "I'm So Hip To Pain", "I Realize", "2 Stroke Blues", "Let Me Be" and "Living Eye". LP, Vinyl record album

13th Floor ElevatorsEaster Everywhere (180 gram pressing) ... LP
International Artists, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Raw early genius from the 13th Floor Elevators – cut back at a time when the Texas combo were one of the hippest things going in the late 60s American underground! There's lots of sounds here that other cats would copy over the decades – but the record has a gritty brilliance that's way better than any of its many imitators – that kind of unique burst of new ideas and young energy that made psych so wonderful when it first emerged in remarkable moments like this! Roky Erickson is wonderful – and the record will definitely illustrate his genius way better than any later efforts to bear his own name in the lead – and the production is just the right blend of studio tricks and homegrown oddness to make the whole thing electrified throughout. Tracks include "Slip Inside This House", "Slide Machine", "Dust", "Earthquake", "Levitation", "Postures", "Baby Blue", and "Nobody To Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Red CrayolaParable Of Arable Land ... LP
International Artists, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic first album of avant noise and psych from the Texas underground, featuring seminal early work by Mayo Thompson, and a mind-blasting set of tracks that mixes straight songs with the group's trademark "free form freak outs". Essential to anyone with even the slightest affinity for the true psychedelic 60s – and especially so for true lovers of the influential psych forbears! Titles of the songs include "Hurricane Fighter Plane", "Transparent Radition" (an all-time classic), "War Sucks", "Former Reflections Enduring Doubt", and "Pink Stainless Tail" – and each track is separated by a freakout!

Miles Davis & Tadd DameronMiles Davis/Tadd Dameron Quintet In Paris Festival International De Jazz May 1949 ... CD
Columbia (Germany), 1949. Used ... $14.99
A rare early side of Miles Davis – recorded in postwar Paris in the company of Tadd Dameron! The group's a quintet – with Miles on trumpet and Tadd on piano – and although the overall vibe certainly shows a lot of bop generation spirit, there's also a strong indication of the deeper ideas that were already becoming a part of both artists' music. The group features some excellent work on tenor from James Moody – plus bass from Barney Spieler and drums from Kenny Clarke. Tunes include a fair bit of familiar numbers from the Charlie Parker camp – and titles include "Rifftide", "Good Bait", "Don't Blame Me", "Lady Bird", "Wah Hoo", "Allen's Alley", "Embraceable You", "Ornithology" and "All The Things You Are".

A mighty nice book on the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival – a key precursor to Woodstock, and an important California music moment during the Summer Of Love! The book is huge, and filled with photos and other images – almost working as a printed documentary on the famous weekend of music – along with recollections of musicians who were involved with the even – a list of dozens that includes Pete Townshend, Roger Daltry, Bob Weir, Al Kooper, Booker T Jones, Steve Cropper, and many others!

Benjamin BiolayLa Superbe ... CD
Naive (France), 2011. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
Definitely superb work from Benjamin Biolay – the kind of instantly seductive sounds that have made him one of the most compelling French artists since the Serge Gainsbourg generation! This double-length set really has Biolay taking off from his earlier EMI recordings – at some points moving towards even more focused tunes that are bound to grab him more international appeal, yet at others using the extra space of the record to work on some of his beautifully rich soundscapes – the kind of tunes we love from Benjamin's few spots of film work. Titles include "15 Aout", "Padam", "Miss Catastrophe", "L'Espoir Fait Vivre", "Rate", "Buenos Aires", "Jaloux De Tout", and "Melancolique". CD

✨✧ Vanessa FarleyOne Last Memory ... CD
Essential, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Vanessa Farley may be a relatively obscure soul singer from New Jersey – but she sings here with a sophisticated style that's like the best female artists on the 70s Philly scene! Vanessa is the cousin of Phyllis Hyman, and definitely has an influence from that side of the spectrum – but we also hear echoes of some of the Philly International work of Jean Carn, and maybe even The Jones Girls in the way the tunes are put together. The production and instrumentation is great – very classic overall, as is the structure of the songs – and titles include "Shake It Up Tonight", "I'm Not Waiting", "I'm In Love Again", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "No One Can Love You More Than I", "I'm Hurtin Deep Down Inside", and "When You Coming Home".

Julius Hemphill (Mbari)Dogon AD (2LP 200 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
International Phonograph, 1972/1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $51.99 62.98
A seminal session from the St Louis scene of the early 70s – one that was humming nearly as much as Chicago was with the AACM at the time! As with the larger organization in the Windy City, St Louis had the Black Artists Group – of which Julius Hemphill was a key member, forming fresh new ideas in improvisatory jazz with players who went onto have an undeniable impact on the global scene as well. This album's one of the standout recordings of the Black Artists era at its best – a record produced by Hemphill, but equally balanced between his own alto and flute, the trumpet of Baikida Carroll, cello of Abdul Wadud, and drums of Phillip Wilson – plus a bit of added baritone from Haimet Bluiett. The rhythms are quite open, but there's also a nice sense of structure to the record too – a bridge between spiritual and free jazz that prefaces the impact that both Hemphill and Bluiett would have on the New York loft jazz generation. Titles include "Dogon AD", "Rites", and "The Painter". LP, Vinyl record album
(2LP pressing – remastered from the original tapes and sounding better than ever – and pressed on 200 gram vinyl!)

Paul LaurenceHaven't You Heard (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1985. Used ... $9.99
A nice mid 80s groover from Paul Laurence for Capitol – whose biggest successes, arguably, were in his services as a songwriter and producer for other artists – making a pretty great case for his own work as a headline act on Haven't You Heard! May may not have heard it, actually, but it's well worth checking out. The sound is blueprint 80s synth soul on one level, but the melodies really soar here, and the songs are strong and hit-worthy. Paul's a solid singer, too. You should hear this! Tiles include "Strung Out", "She's Not A Sleaze" (with Freddie Jackson & Lillo Thomas), "You Hooked Me", "I'm Sensitive", "Haven't You Heard" and more. This FTG edition has 4 bonus tracks: "Strung Out (International Version)", "She's Not A Sleaze (Extended Version)", "Strung Out (Extended Dance Mix) and "You Hooked Me (Single Version)". CD

Fuzzy psyche from the Texas scene of the late 60s – the only album ever from Moving Sidewalks, a great little group that features a pre-ZZ Top Billy Gibbons on vocals! The album's got just as much grit as other Texas underground sets from the time – such as work on the International Artists label – and the instrumentation's especially searing, a beautifully wrapped-up blend of tight drums, brooding bass, heady organ, and Gibbons' fuzzy guitar! Titles include "Flashback", "Scoun Da Be", "You Make Me Shake", "No Good To Cry", "Crimson Witch", "Eclipse", and "Pluto Sept 31st". LP, Vinyl record album

(UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $8.99
Seductive soul galore – a great little set that starts in the southern soul years of the early 70s, then moves up through some great Philly modern at the end! The package brings together work from a few different labels – mostly Hi Records, Chi-Sound, and Philly International – and the range of artists is tied together nicely by a set of song styles that adhere to the mellow, sexy modes promised in the title! Titles include "I Choose You" by Paris, "Especially For You" by Manchild, "Eternally" by The Jones Girls, "It's Cool" by Walter Jackson, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Jean Carn, "The Sweetest Pain" by Dexter Wansel, "What Cha Tryin To Do" by Margie Alexander, "The Whole Town's Laughing At Me" by Teddy Pendergrass, "I Can't Stand The Rain" by Ann Peebles, "Just As Long As I Know You're Mine" by Dee Dee Sharp Gamble, "Brandy" by The O'Jays, and "I'm Still In Love With You" by Al Green.

VariousDouble Shot Of Soul – Funky Los Angeles Soul From The Vaults Of The Double Shot & Whiz Labels 1967 – 70 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Lost soul from a massively overlooked source – the mighty LA indie Double Shot Records, best known for their fuzzy rock classics, but also a hotbed of tripped-out soul! Given that Double Shot's 2 biggest artists of the late 60s were Count Five ("Psychotic Reaction") and Brenton Wood ("Oogum Boogum Song"), you can imagine that the label would be equally well suited to handle mod 60s guitars and sweet soul vocals – and on most of the tracks on this set, you'll be hearing them at the same time! The set's a really massive batch of tunes – a wonderful discovery to our ears, as we'd only ever heard the odd rare single on the label, and had no idea that there was so much great work – nor that it would sound so great! The CD features a total of 26 tracks in all, pulled from the Double Shot singles of the late 60s – with tracks that include "Push Me Baby" and "Jelly" by The Bagdads, "What Is Soul" and "The International Love Song" by The Real Thing, "Four Piece Funky Nitty Gritty Junky Band" and "Everybody's Got A Hang Up" by Bobby Freeman, "Gotta Keep Talkin" and "Coming In Out Of The Rain" by Maurice Rodgers, "The Neck" and "Trouble" by Kent & The Candidates, "Sugar Sugar" by Shirley, and "Trouble" by Foxy.

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99 29.99
A whoppingly huge survey of the role of female talents in jazz – not just the usual singers who are so often put at the foreground of the female jazz canon, but also a range of instrumentalists and female jazz groups – all pulled together here in material from the earliest days of jazz on up to the start of the 60s! The package features one full disc on piano players – 23 tracks by artists as diverse as Joyce Collins, Jutta Hipp, Terry Pollard, Toshiko Akioshi, Lil Armstrong, Mary Lou Williams, Dorothy Donegan, and Patti Brown – a very well-selected batch that includes some great surprises! The next disc features musicians on a range of instruments – from trumpeter Clora Bryant, to organist Shirley Scott, alto saxophonist Vi Redd, harpist Dorothy Ashby, and trombonist Melba Liston – plus some more obscure names as well! The last CD is a great overview of all-girl bands, with an especially strong focus on the swing years – with work by The Hip Chicks, Ina Ray Hutton, Ivy Benton, Mary Lou Williams, Beryl Booker, and The International Sweethearts Of Rhythm. As usual with Disques Fremeaux, the package is huge – 70 titles in all, plus detailed notes in French and English! CD

VariousLove Hit Me – Decca Beat Girls 1962 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99
The British scene of the 60s was filled with some tremendous work from a huge range of female artists – not just the bigger international names, like Lulu or Petula Clark, but also a host of even cooler, even groovier gals – like the artists collected on this set! There's a special sound to UK girl pop of the time – often a strong influence from soul music, which makes for some excellent rhythms throughout – that mod love of American R&B, moved into some even hipper territory during the beat years that span most of this collection. And amongst British labels, Decca was maybe the one with its ear most to the ground – able to pick up some great overlooked talents and get them onto singles, even if they never cut a full album – with a continued legacy of tracks that could even cross over to the Northern Soul scene at times. This package serves up a stunning array of these Decca label gems – with titles that include "Hey Boy" by Barry St John, "Little Boy" by Goldie & The Gingerbreads, "Poor Old Johnny" by Twinkle, "Love Hit Me" by The Orchids, "I'm In Love With You" by Billie Davis, "No No No" by Dana Gillespie, "That's Right Baby" by Marianne Faithful, "Where The Good Times Are" by Beverley, "Something Beautiful" by Adrienne Poster, "I Wanna Go Back There Again" by Truly Smith, "I'll Come Running Over" by Lulu, and "I Stand Accused Of Loving You" by The Satin Bells. 24 tracks in all.

Legacy, Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $29.99
Fab Philadelphia soul on 4 CDs – a massive package of work that really serves up the best from the legendary empire of Gamble & Huff, plus a host of other great Philly numbers too! The package is a great look at the full spectrum of sound in Philly during the 70s – not just the key tracks on the Philadelphia International label, but also cuts that Gamble & Huff had produced for other artists at the end of the 60s, key Sigma Sound sessions for other labels, and some of the classic club tracks that crossed over big and inspired countless imitations! The set is immense – 4CDs, 71 songs, and a 64 page booklet of rare photos and new essays – all priced nicely enough to appeal to both Philly newcomers and longtime collectors. Plus, since Sony BMG's handling Philly International now, there's a good range of titles from a variety of labels – and titles include "Love Is Here" by The Futures, "Slow Motion (part 1)" by Johnny Williams, "Sunshine" by The O'Jays, "Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You" by Wilson Pickett, "Expressway To Your Heart" by Soul Survivors, "I'm Stone In Love With You" by The Stylistics, "Be Thankful For What You Got (part 1)" by William DeVaughan, "Dirty Ol Man" by Three Degrees, "It's Forever" by The Ebonys, "Enjoy Yourself" by The Jacksons, "Free Love" by Jean Carn, "Kiss & Say Goodbye" by The Manhattans, "Let's Groove" by Archie Bell, "Billy's Back Home" by Billy Paul, "Picture Us" by Bunny Sigler, "Then Came You" by The Spinners, "Close The Door" by Teddy Pendergrass, "It's Gonna Take A Miracle" by Deniece Williams, and "See You When I Get There" by Lou Rawls.

Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
Not the usual Nigerian funk collection you might expect – as the music here is from the years before Fela Kuti and other artists exploded onto international 70s fame – and instead, come from a time where the Nigerian scene was busy drinking up influences from a range of other cultures too! As a result, there's a fair bit of Latin and Caribbean elements at play – a bit of that Cuban influence that touched West African music so strongly in the 60s, and other post-colonial elements too – all mixed with regional styles that provide a very particular flavor – on tracks that are heavy on rhythms, jazzy inflections, and lots of great work on electric guitar and horns! The package is the first we've really seen to give this period its due – and the set is presented with the usual stunning Soul Jazz Approach – very detailed notes, and a superb track list that includes "Ariwo" by Chris Ajilo & His Cubanos, "Lumumba Calypso" by EC Arinze, "Save For A Rainy Day" by Sammy Akpabot & His All Stars, "You Cheat Me" by Godwin Omobuwa & His Soundmakers, "Omo Alara" by IK Dairo & His Blue Spots, "Owo Ni Fari" by Heavy Haruna Ishola & His Group, "Cool Cats Invitation" by Victor Ola-Lya & His Cool Cats, and "Baby I Tire" by Charles Iwegbue & His Archibogs.

VariousNothing But A House Party – The Birth Of The Philly Sound 1967 to 1971 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Some folks might associate Philadelphia soul with the famous Gamble & Huff productions of the 70s disco years – but the city was already overflowing with great music in the years before Philadelphia International – as you'll hear in this totally groovy set! Philly was making as much great soul music in the 60s as Detroit, Chicago, and New York – thanks to an earlier musical framework that was set up by the city's big pop hits of the late 50s – which provided plenty of labels, studios, and other facilities for Philly's ever-growing array of soul talents, too – so much so that by the end of the 60s, the city was turning into a destination for singers outside of town – almost as much of a musical magnet as studios in Memphis or Muscle Shoals! This set does a great job of bringing together both aspects of that scene – wonderful homegrown talent, mixed with outsiders to really took off in the new Philly sound of the 60s – a joyous, positive, upbeat approach that worked wonderfully well for a variety of artists. Titles include "Your Fool Still Loves You" by Oscar Weathers, "It's All Over But The Shouting" by George Tindley, "You've Been Untrue" by The Delfonics, "Ain't Nothing But A House Party" by The Show Stoppers, "Peace To You Brother" by Lou Johnson, "Christine" by Executive Suite, "Help Me" by Honey & The Bees, "You Got What I Need" by Freddie Scott, "Rainmaker" by The Moods, "Keep On Striving" by Moses Smith, "That's The Price You Have To Pay" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "What You Gave Up" by The Continental 4, "Every Day Is A Holiday" by The Intruders, "Standing In The Darkness" by The Ethics, and "Girl You're Too Young" by Len Barry.

There's a fast-flowing vibe here that's linked a lot more closely to Nigerian sounds of the 70s than you might expect – music that's different than some of the bluer tones of bigger Malian artists that get more global exposure – and which showcase a huge explosion of sounds during one of the nation's most fervent cultural moments!

Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
The 12" single is a format that only makes a good thing better – as it often allows for a bit more space to let a track open up, especially when in the hands of the right producer! The 31 tracks on this set are a perfect illustration of that fact – as they represent a huge wave of 12" single releases from the early years of the format – mostly tracks by bigger artists of the time, but served up here in versions that really top the album versions and the smaller 7" single takes. Almost all the selections here are mixes done for the 12" vinyl format at the time – and they work together wonderfully in a selection of grooves from labels that include Columbia, Epic, and Philadelphia International. Tracks include "Bourgie Bourgie (12" version)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Blame It On The Boogie (12" single version)" by The Jacksons, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (12" version)" by Dan Hartman with Loleatta Holloway, "Boogie Wonderland (12" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "I Love Music (12" version)" by The O'Jays, "Boogie Nights (12" single)" by Heatwave, "Native New Yorker (12" disco)" by Odyssey, "Love Magic (12" version)" by John Davis & The Monster Orchestra, "Disco Nights (12" disco version)" by GQ, "Lovin Is Really My Game (12" version)" by Brainstorm, "Gotta Go Home (ext version)" by Boney M, "No One Home (12" version)" by Lalo Schifrin, "Shame (12" version)" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Let's Love Tonight (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "Dance Little Lady Dance (12" version)" by Tina Charles, "TSOP (special 12" version)" by MFSB with Three Degrees, "That Lady (parts 1 & 2)" by The Isley Brothers, "Was That All It Was (12" version)" by Jean Carn, "How's Your Love Life Baby (special 12" version)" by Jackie Moore, "I've Got The Next Dance (12" disco)" by Deniece Williams, and "Star Love (disco version)" by Cheryl Lynn.

A really majestic live set from Billy Paul – recorded in the UK at the height of his greatest fame – but in a way that features plenty of longer tracks that really let Billy stretch out and do his thing! Given this expanded setting, there's a surprisingly righteous feel to most numbers – a sound that continues the groove of Going East and War Of The Gods, and also features a bit more of Paul's presence as an entertainer on the stage. The album's a beautiful illustration of the fact that Billy was easily one of the hippest artists working for Philadelphia during the early days – and it offers up some tremendous transformations of the tunes "Thanks For Saving My Life", "Your Song", "Me & Mrs. Jones", "War Of The Gods", and "Brown Baby".

Alga Marghen (France), 1960s/1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The quietest record you'll ever own – because there's no sounds at all pressed on the disc! The collection is a stunning celebration of the use of silence in records – and features selections by artists from a surprisingly wide range of styles – all of whom create pieces of silence to use alongside more sonically stimulating material – often with some sort of social comment in the practice! Yet despite the lack of any sound at all, the record is faithfully banded to show the duration of each number – and an extended listen produces a John Cage-like contemplation of nothingness that's surprisingly compelling – especially when it comes in a package as attractive as this. Titles include "Silence" by Robert Wyatt, "There's A Riot Going On" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Nutopian International Anthem" by John Lennon, "The Sound Of Free Speech" by Crass, "Silence" by Ciccone Youth, "Disco Party (part 2)" by Son Of Pete, "Silence (Copyright 1932)" by Andy Warhol, "Anniversary Of World War III" by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, "9-11-01" by Soulfly, and "The Ballad Of Richard Nixon" by John Denver.

✨✧ Edwin BirdsongEdwin Birdsong (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A breakout solo moment from the great Edwin Birdsong – an artist who participated in some of Roy Ayers great albums of the 70s, and who cut some great underground records of his own – but who finally got the chance to step into the limelight on this set for Philadelphia International! Birdsong's always been his own man – one of the quirkiest funk artists you'll ever find – and the set's got a very different vibe than anything else from the Gamble & Huff house of hits – mostly because Edwin produced and arranged the whole thing on his own. There's a few slight Roy Ayers touches at times – we sometimes think of Edwin as the Bootsy to Roy's George Clinton – and the rhythms have a nicely romping groove that's more Bohannon than the usual disco tracks. There's also some mellower numbers – like the great "Autumn Eyes" and "Lollipop (Slow)", both of which have a mellow Ayers steppin' groove – and other more upbeat titles include"Cola Bottle Baby", "Phiss Phizz", "Kunta Dance", "Goldmine", and "Freaky Deaky Sities". CD features lots of 12" single bonus tracks – "Phiss Phizz (12" disco)", "Lollipop (12" disco)", "Goldmine (12" disco)", "Freaky Deaky Sities (12" disco)", and "Kunta Dance (part 1)". CD

VariousReturn Of Mod Jazz – Mod Jazz Vol 5 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Get ready to throw away your jukebox – because this tasty set has all the grooves you'd ever want, all packed in one tasty CD! The sound of Mod Jazz is the sound of the 60s – a blistering blend of Hammond organ, soulful vocals, swinging rhythms, and a finger-snapping assortment of various instrumental modes – all brought together from unlikely sources into one hip-stepping, bad-walking collection! As with previous volumes, the set list here is really outta sight – and blends together a few familiar numbers with overlooked gems from rare singles and obscure LPs – many by artists that we know and love, but who we didn't know could cook up a groove this nicely. There's a real speaker-blowing quality to the whole thing, too – the kind of soulful, thumping styles that would have made this CD feel right at home in a southside jazz lounge back in the day! 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Beaver" by Clarence Armstrong, "Banana Peels" by Johnny Otis, "Hide Out" by The Hideaways, "Bell Bottoms" by Joe Swift's Internationals, "East Side" by Hank Jacobs, "Have Some Boogaloo" by Timmy Thomas, "El Pussy Cat" by Mongo Santamaria, "Summertime" by George Benson Quartet, "Sack O Woe" by Ray Bryant, "Them Blues" by Billie Poole, "Sweet Lover No More" by Gene McDaniels, "Wild Bird" by Googie Rene, and "Get It" by The Swinging Tomatoes.
