      I can think of 3 45s that spring to mind as they were copped at the same time. They were from a record shop with about 6,000 ish 45s at a quid each or 15 for a tenner. Sick of buying blind punts that are rubbish I took the ion portable. I still give thanks to this portable as its so light to carry and saved me a fortune. I was in there about 3 hours and played anything that i didn,t know that looked interesting and spent 12 quid in total (17-45s)

      At first glance this looks like you have flipped past another copy of Pluto "Your Honour" or that "Saddle up" pop dirge as its on the same label. This is the b side, I recognized it straight away as a cover version, but could not guess it for about 10 mins. I was going off on tangents thinking it was a 60s pop or a soul cover. Its actually an instrumental cover version of Bob Marley "Kaya" with a tinkling piano over the top. Never looked this up, but is it an original Marley rhythm? or did he borrow it from elsewhere? I couldn,t find a soundclip on you tube. If you like reggae 45s and cover versions, there is 2 here at 3.99 and a fiver.

      If I worked for Recordkings this would get hyped as- Mouth organ breaks femme vox :-)
      Sounds a bit like/but not really - someone gives Portishead a mouth organ and tells them to make a commercial track with it.
      Its new to me and I liked it anyway. I couldn,t find the shorter 45 soundclip which is better than the 12" but here,s a soundclip of the 12"

      There,s a few foreign 45s I play that are rubbish but this one is decent.

      One ok track, but the best one is a short track 1min 40 secs long.
      "Jangan Peri Lagi" Decent funky/soul ish track thats bugging me as it sounds like a cover version of a soul track that I know but can,t put my finger on, does anybody have it or know what it is?
      Cheers

        I'm still loving that Lancashire Hustlers LP that someone on here was involved in.

        And the Anderson Paak LP has had lots of play too.

          Yeah I bought 'The Lancashire Hustlers' album as well its had a few plays, I'd forgotten about it might dig it out for later its a bloody good listen.

          Re: The 'St Louis' track because I put the Chubby Checker duet version with Dee Dee Sharp on my swap CD last year that version is now burned in my brain. No YouTube clip unfortunately of that particular song but the album has a lot of studio banter in between songs which made it great as a transition which was half of the reason as to why I put it on but then it just grew on me.

Anyone who'd like something to listen to on a Sunday evening when they're all breaked-out from their funky 7"s could do worse than slip this onto the turntable and pour out a small whisky-drink sensibly kids.

            Nice take on Señor Blues on that LP.

              Keep playing this, may not be to some tastes but I love it.

                I don't think it's quite this year, but I got the Elis Regina cut Aguas De Março with Bala Com Bala on the flip. Then I managed to get the Sergio Mendes take on 45 (which is nice but a bit smooth). I thought I would never get the Jobim US promo...

                Lovely version. I think we've been here before on this forum. I got obsessed with this song this year and have bought tonnes of it! 'You Came A Long Way From St Louis', 'Peter Gunn' and 'Tintarella De Luna' sum this year up for me. I'm moving into 'Sixteen Tonnes'. This drag queen in mufti impression of Della Reece cracks me up:

                  I like that. Looks like a download only job.

                    I should look up some other versions but the Anita O Day one is kind of imprinted now- I've had it about 35 years. Good luck with sixteen tonnes. Difficult to screw that up so they should all be good. I like that Noriel Viela one. I didn't realise Mr Bongo had reissued it and there was I thinking I couldn't afford it.

                      Yeah it is which is a shame. I got the WAV files from Julia Kwamya (singer/writer) and would have loved to have seen a seven inch of this and the equally great 'Wonder How'.
                      The only two tracks they ever 'released' I think, produced by Kurt Feldman who was in Pains Of Being Pure At Heart or something.
                      Beautiful stuff. Glad you like it!



                      Forgot to include one more track that has given me a lot of joy so far this year, complete opposite of the Germans tracks though.....

                        Kind of by association. While in an Edinburgh record shop recently, LDJB pulled an lp out of the racks neither of us had seen before, Ray King Soul band Live at the Playboy Club. I think he would have bought it anyway, but my enthusiastic encouragement may have helped a smidge. Bagged one myself since then. Full on "clubby" chunky bass, wailing Hammond, really tight band and top vocals too. Probably the best live lp I have in my collection. Came out on Direction in the UK, mine is on US 360degree CBS.



                        There's a top, mental version of Shotgun on there too.

                        You've just got to be close to it all

                          You've checked Mark Murphy and the 1973 Joao Gilberto version, right, Eine?

                          Jose Guardiola does 16 tons and Tintarella de Luna on one Spanish ep, and chucks in a fairly tame version of Mustapha, too.

                            Been reading about the 'Ray King Band' it caught my interest when you posted it in the finds thread. Seems they were from Coventry and your'e right they are tight and not a hint of fromage about them or going through the motions. Might have to bag myself a copy of that.

                              On the single I have it's Portuguese on one side English on the other. I think I prefer the Portuguese, but the lyrics are amazing and lyrics rarely 'matter' to me.

                              You've checked Mark Murphy and the 1973 Joao Gilberto version, right, Eine?
                              Nope—listening now. Interested in any more too anyone?

                              Got this. The version of Mustapha is tame!

                                We have indeed been here before Eine - did you get the Mae Barnes version?



                                SK - maybe it might tempt you away from Anita's mighty fine version
