The Mojo Men - Don't leave Me Crying Like Before

Cool moody garage psych from 1966 by The Mojo Men. You can still buy this 45 for around a buck. Don't know why it isn't worth more because this tune is just as cool as most things on the nuggets comps or other comps of the same ilk, i guess it wasn't underground enough... Cool tune either way.

St. Steven - Ay-Aye-Poe-Day

Promo single from the pretty great 1969 album by St. Steven on Probe Records. I own the reissue of the self-titled album. One of these days i will track down an OG copy, but the prices these days are a bit more than my pocket can handle at the moment. Anyone holding and wants to part at a "bro price" let me know! For now, this OG 45 will have to hold me over. Great fuzz guitar.

Shirley Caeser - Stand The Storm

I'm not the biggest gospel fan in the world but i just picked this album up on the cheap and this track rocks in a funky, soulful & rocking sort of way. It was have really been great if there was killer fuzz solo in the middle or end! Still pretty cool. Sounds like something Tina Turner or Merry Clayton would have done.

The Channels - Old Chinatown

I still don't have a firm grip on what actually makes soul "northern" (soul played in the north of England in the 60's & 70's???) but i guess this is it...? "Rare" "Northern Soul" according to the interwebs...

The year is 1965 & i love the main singer dudes almost crackly voice. Cool 45 i was happy to find on the cheap.
