Outsiders "CQ"-era promo card 1968

Talk about rare... The amazing "CQ" album landed with a thud in 1968 but, today, its stature only continues to grow.

32nd Turnoff "Used To Be A Tiger" 1970





Not much is known about this Eddy Grant (The Equals) studio project. I can't find any information on who else was involved.  Both tracks on this single taken from their eponymous LP. I'm surprised this wasn't released on President, which was The Equals' label.

**Anyone with a clean copy of this Italian 45 on Jay Boy Records, please get in touch. $$$ awaits you!

The Bobby Fuller Four "The Magic Touch" June 1966


Sadly, this was Bobby's last single to be released during his all too short life. This was also cut by Melba Moore in '66 but her version was not released until the mid-80's.

Lee Dorsey "Do Re Mi"

Been too busy to post lately. Listening to lots of Lee Dorsey though. Fuck "Northern" Soul. This is the real deal.

The Equals "I Get So Excited" live on French TV Early 1969



Shot on film. Amazing footage of this massively underrated group featuring a young Eddy Grant on lead guitar. These guys are way overdue for the reissue treatment.

Conexion nº 5 - I Get so Excited (EQUALS cover)



What a strange place to find a cover of one of my favorite groups, The Equals. An early 70's film called "El Extraño de Pelo Largo".

Otis Redding Shout Bamalama original pressing 1962



This blew my mind. This is the 1st pressing that used a completely different take than all the later reissues. Enjoy.
