Its Not What You Know

Playing the Bob and Gene 45 from vinyl finally!!! Nice to have the full 2 hours back for Galactic Fractures. I really packed in the songs on this show, not much talking. Be sure to check out the two versions of "Same Thing It Took". I was actually more aware of the rare gospel 45, cause of its recent rerelease on Numero Group. The Impressions do a nice secular version though. I recently got hipped to that fantastic Nina Simone track I had been ignoring for far too long, so don't miss that one either!

The Jay Vons

Started out the show this week with a fantastic new 45 from The Jay Vons. Both sides of this record are fantastic (I play the ballad on the show today). Hopefully they will drop a full length soon! Also in the show today are some amazing cuts by Marion Black, Roy Johnson and Paula West. Plus, don't miss the absolutely insane boogaloo track by Renaissance of Rhythm!
