Beer So Nice Right On

Another show of funk and soul craziness. Some newer tracks, some older ones. Most of them I have played on the show already, but not in a while. That Sandra Williams on Neo-Fo is just amazing...don't think there is another copy around. I haven't seen one.

A few sweet-with-a-beat james like Doris and Kelley and The Webs. Even played a couple Iranian psych 45s in this show! Check out the full playlist below.

Saigon To San Francisco

Back after 2 weeks off! A few new funk and soul 45s at the beginning of the show, and a nice set of my favorite international psych music. Make sure to check out the amazing Toussaint McCall instrumental, Saigon to San Francisco. I typically like vocals more, but this instrumental is fantastic.

Motown Around The World!

I just got hipped to the new compilation called 'Motown Around The World', where the ORIGINAL artists do their hits in other languages! I am searching for these on vinyl, so let me know if you can help! Also check out THE PUTBACKS new 45, been playing them for a long time on the show. Their new record doesn't disappoint.

Lastly, for the deep funk fans, I finally got my own copy of TIGHTEN UP 70! I play that in the show as well.
