Fried Neck Bones and Home Fries  performed by Willie Bobo  1966
Composed by Bobo-Lastie

Latin soul at it's finest!! Willie and his boys lock themselves into a serious groove on this cut. Also available on the highly-recommended Rhino compilation "Sabroso! The Afro-Latin Groove".

available on CD - Uno, Dos, Tres/Spanish Grease (Verve)

Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child  performed by Little Jimmy Scott  1969
Composed by Traditional

Stunning version of this old standard. Jimmy Scott's voice is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful things in the world. I've never heard anybody else who could channel so much pain into a song. Regardless of your feelings toward David Lynch, you have to respect him for rescuing Scott's career from obscurity.

from The Source, available on CD (Tangerine)

  24 Jul 01 ·delicado: yeah, I picked up the European reissue of this album recently, and have to agree with you on its power. I first came across Scott on the 'fire, walk with me' soundtrack, and for many years, 'Jimmy Scott' was just that strange voice. I only figured out the gender quite recently.
I Hate You  performed by The Monks  1966
Composed by Burger-Clark-Day-Johnston-Shaw

"Don't you know that my hate is everlasting, baby?" The story of the Monks is the story of rock & an alternate reality, perhaps. Take a bunch of bored US servicemen stationed in Germany about to be discharged, put them in a band, and have them decide to freak out the establishment by dressing in black capes, shaving their heads into monk's tonsures and wearing nooses as neckties. Perhaps not so shocking in these days after punk rock, but this was 1965. Oh, and don't forget the electric banjo. What began as a fairly standard surf/beat combo called the Torquays mutated into this band, churning out some of the most nihilistic music you've ever heard, even by German standards.

from Black Monk Time, available on CD (Polydor)

Question Mark  performed by Billy Nicholls  1968
Composed by Nicholls

This album has been called "Britain's answer to 'Pet Sounds'", and while I wouldn't necessarily agree with that, it is certainly a masterpiece of psychedelic pop, and even more impressive when you factor in that Nicholls was barely 19 when he wrote & recorded it. Nicholls was indeed influenced by Brian Wilson in his melodic construction and orchestration, however...the album's sound is very reminiscent of the pseudo-Spector work that Andrew Loog Oldham was using with Del Shannon at this period (Oldham, not so coincidentally, also produced this LP). This song in particular, with it's intricate multi-tracked harmonies really hints at the kind of promise Nicholls' career had, and had this album not been shelved at the last minute, it's anybody's guess what may have followed.

from Would You Believe?, available on CD (Immediate)

The Chelsea Memorandum  performed by Lalo Schifrin  1967
Composed by Shorty Rogers

I'm a sucker for Hammond organs. And no place is that more true than in spy tv & film scores. Here is a cut which really swings from one of the genre's masters, Lalo Schifrin.

from More Mission: Impossible (Paramount)
available on CD - Mission: Anthology (One Way)

  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Groovy! Groovy! Groovy! What else can I say...what else could anyone say?
