I received a box full of 45s in the mail last week, all from tiny and obscure or medium-sized and established labels. I decided to mix through them this weekend to sample them, and I let the recorder roll as I did so. The result is this 40-minute slab of funk and soul, with a little bit of reggae and afrobeat. You know, my usual thing.
Some fresh gems here, and some forgotten oldies that have recently been reissued. Labels represented include Truth & Soul, Now and Again, Daptone, Lion's Bread (the Lions own label), Mocambo, Ricky Tick (from Finland!) and a little Stones Throw (a mix of a couple of Madlib's Yesterday's New Quintet tunes) at the end.
So enjoy, either streaming here or as a download you can carry with you. Long live the mighty seven inch vinyl 45!
