Good things come to those who wait

July 7, 2016

Its been a long long while since we brought the jams.  We have had our face in the books and noses to the grindstone.  But the goose is loose, so watch yo butt.  We will do a top to bottom ebay, grandma’s collection sandwich to celebrate the hollowdays.  To open the sesh, and to close out the Patto collection, a track from Roll ‘Em Smoke ‘Em Put Another Line Out.  Not even in the mail yet, Singing the Blues on Reds is too hot to wait for tangible possession.  Peace of mind will have to suffice.

Bottom dropper numero dois is a smokin gospel R&B crossover track, first gospel banger of the collection.  Evelyn Freeman and her exciting voices will make you move and take you to church all in one wipe snipe.  This track, featuring 14 exciting voices, is an underground hit not to be missed.  This was an essential jam to have for your in car record player (we want one) cruisin down the boulevards in the early 60s.

And for the cake on top, João Donato, our Brazilian brother from another mother.  We made a $30 offer for the this one only to be shut down.  2 weeks later we won this bad (Donato) boy for a cool 10 spot.  Good things come to those who wait.  Straight Jacket has Heise written all over it. Ah the good ole days.  Luckily for us the Brazilian jazz funk master spent a good portion of his career here in the states, and is one of the easier Brazilian artists to find US pressings.  Vai Joao vai!!!  Disclaimer: These tracks should be enjoyed with a tall glass of mint and watermelon juice on a hot summer day like today.  Enjoy!
