Watch Out Girl  performed by the Okaysions  1970

A stomping uptempo cut of blue-eyed soul, replete with slicing fuzz guitar, almost angelic harmonies and a brilliant call-and-response chorus. A league beyond the mainstream schmaltz of their earlier hit "Girl Watcher".

from the single Watch Out Girl (Cotillion)


3-2-1-Ah  performed by Los Canarios  1967
Composed by Bautista

These Canary Islands boys try their best to disguise their accents on this snarling proto-Stooges number with almost militaristic drumming and ethereal backing vocals. The flip to the club classic "Get on Your Knees".

from the single 3-2-1-Ah (Calla)
available on CD - Planetary Pebbles 2: Exitos a-Go-Go (AIP)

Gimme that Wine  performed by Lambert, Hendricks & Ross  1959

"I can't cut loose without my juice!" Dave, Jon & Annie get their priorities straight.

from The Hottest New Group in Jazz, available on CD (Columbia)




  08 Apr 03 ·singjohn: An LA-based acapella group called "Sixth Wave" has an interesting version of this song. A sample of it can be found here: http://www.6thwave.com/merchandise.asp Love LHR! The Manhattan Transfer borrowed quite a bit from them!
Much Too Much  performed by James Crawford  1965

A James Brown-produced James Brown-soundalike with a deep bass undertow and a truly odd mariachi flavor.

from the single Much Too Much (Mercury)


Paper Castle  performed by Rotary Connection  1968
Composed by Maurice Dollison

The Temptations may be first in your mind when you think of psychedelic soul, but this group, featuring former Turnkeys leader Maurice Dollison and the woman we can blame for "Lovin' You", Minnie Riperton, defined it with this single scorching, fuzzy, crunchy, swirling, doped-up masterpiece. Long-time Chess arranger Charles Stepney milks the string section for all it's worth.

from Aladdin (Cadet Concept)
available on CD - Aladdin/Dinner Music (Raven)




  05 Sep 02 ·Liv: A strange hybrid of styles.. Psychedelic soul?
  05 Sep 02 ·tinks: yeah, and it wasn't even the strangest...there was an off-shoot that i'll hereby dub "native soul", which was a blend of psychedelic soul, with it's fuzz guitars and such, and native american drums. the sound is best exemplified by the instrumental group the electric indian, who were from philadelphia (and featured len barry of "1-2-3" fame") and had a moderate-sized hit with "keem-o-sabe". they recorded a couple of lps in the idiom, while all other examples i've heard have been one-off attempts. there's also good stuff out there by a group called the little big horns and a song called "warpath" by the isley brothers which is an all-out masterpiece.
  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Thought I didn't like The Rotary connection. Hearing that, I've changed my mind. It's outa-sight!
