Farfisa Gravy

As promised, here's the follow-up comp to yesterday's Funky Hot Biscuits. Both contain more than a grab bag of 45s found in Mark Prellburg's loot this past weekend. Actually, Mark was pretty surprised to see collectors like Dr. Drase and I picking up both R&B and garage at the same time. The truth is there was a lot of crossover between these genres back in the 60s; the garage bands were obviously listening to R&B and probably vice versa. There are even a few tracks on here that were originally part of Funky Hot Biscuits but in the end I thought they were too raucous and fit better with the rocker tunes. By the way, Farfisa organ is one of the funkiest instruments around.

Funky Hot Biscuits

Hey all, it's time for another compilation of 45s I've been digging up recently. Actually, it's been more than a minute since the last one so I found a backlog of gems for ya. In part these were the northern soul and deep funk cuts I pulled out for Addenda's release show of the new JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound 7" on Friday (what a great show!). I also picked up some HOT records from Mark Prellburg on Sunday when Dr. Drase and I woke up early for an adventure up to Mt. Prospect. Wow! I snagged some killer garage from his boxes too so there's actually another comp that focuses on the stompers coming tomorrow. Watch for it.
