A couple of comment requests for this week and this is pretty cool and raw sounding. Starts out with a VERY FUNKY tune called Funky Tale and later they cover Pick Up The Pieces by AWB...just found out the Forever More is AWB early daze!!!
This honcho is from New Mexico I gather and does a fine cover of 'I Fought the Law' with some other hard rockin' funk experimental tunes. A nice requested item I went out and got on Discogs from Japan over 4 months ago it was delayed due to Covid19!! Was so happy to finally get it last Friday.
Not to be "rapped up like a douche' about it but Colin at Rocketship Records said as he sold this to me that this was the only good record they ever made....remember the song in the movie Stripes??!
REPOST Request: Still looking for a live album or anything else by Hirth. Real funky musician with a Wolfman Jack--Dr. John--Root Boy Slim kind of vocal along the edges from Los Angeles scene I believe. Robbie Robertson produced the first album and played guitar on it!!!
Three more tunes from the old 'Back In The Days Of Soul' radio playlist but of course since this is a greatest hits album. Includes: (1) 'That's The Way I Feel About Cha', (2) 'You're Welcome, Stop On By' and (3) 'Lookin' For Love'.
REPOST Request: Sorry, I only could find the later EP shown and so missing the top EP shown which according to Bernando who originally posted them is much harder punk sound.
REPOST Request: Got to open and then rip this shiny new Good Will record and dang it, pretty cool for a singer-songwriter who always wanted to make this opus as first time effort. A good internal theme for the blog in the title! https://gofile.io/d/602QiD
REPOST and ADD ON: Got the earlier album but not as 'hard rock' as the latter I had posted.
Charles Wright And The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band - Express Yourself LP w/o Charles - Together LP and In The Jungle Babe LP
REPOST and ADD ON: I added the two shown without Charles (first tune on 'Together' is 'Sorry Charlie' so I guess they had a falling out). Great funky band with more to find!
THE NEON JUDGEMENT - Horny As Hell LP w BLOOD AND THUNDER LP 89 w EP 89 w Games Of Love EP w Mafu Cage LP
REPOST and ADD ON: Added the top platter shown and a doozy! Album also had a rare sleeve showing all the 'WAX TRAX' and 'PLAY IT AGAIN SAM' Chicago label releases at the time.
Red Rockers - Condition Red CD w LP w Guns Of The Revolution EP w Good As Gold + Schizophrenic Circus 2CD 95
REPOST Request: Early Clash sounding band.
IRON CITY HOUSEROCKERS - Love's So Tough LP 79 w Have A Good Time (But Get Out Alive) LP 80 w Blood On The Bricks LP 81
REPOST Request: From Pittsburgh, PA of course.
