Sunday Diggin is a weekly review of some gems we got our hands on during the week on our cruises to the record stores. On this week’s lucky finds;
Richard Hell & The Voidoids – Blank Generation
Along with The Ramones, Johnny Thunders and Television, I believe Richard Hell & The Voidoids are the face of the raw and original sound of the CBGB‘s New York punk and rock n roll scene; Raw, poetic, dirty and groovy; From beginning to end.
A true classic Rock N Roll Album.
1 – Liars Beware
4 – Betrayal Takes Two
7 – Blank Generation
12 – All The Way ( yea, its a Frank Sinatra cover )
Willie Hutch – The Mack
The cover can only give you a glimpse of how heavy this album is. Willie Hutch is a bad motherfucker and he’s will blow your mind to the fullest with some righteous Funk and Soul music. Not to mention that this is the soundtrack of the movie The Mack, a 1973 blaxploitation classic.
Oh, and yea, the sample of UGK’s International Players Anthem is pretty much built over I Choose You.
Thanks DJ Paul W Cox for gifting me this classic gem.
2 – Theme Of The Mack
3 – I Choose You
6 – Mack Man (Got To Get Over)
9 – Brother’s Gonna Work It Out
Seasick Steve – Live At Third Man Records
This is a part of a live series from Third Man Records, recorded at their record store in Nashville ALL STRAIGHT to acetate, no cuts, overdubs or edits; all live played and engineered.
Under these circumstances, what to expect from Seasick Steve recorded like this? A full blown blues show experience in your room, just make sure is loud enough so your neighbors can enjoy it too. Thank you Mr Jack White for bringing the vinyl record listening experience to a new height with this idea. I hope many more of these will come.
1 – My Donny
3 – Cut My Wings
5 – You Got To Move (With Alison Mosshart)
7 – Dog House Boogie
