01. “Musical Episode: Get Yourself Together”
Psyched to be putting up my first hour long mix since I accidentally stopped posting them a year or so ago.
The frustrating part of writing about these records is I want to give each one a lot of attention and dig into the record a little more than just listing the song title, artist and label but when I’m putting twenty of them together in succession like this mix it’d be a friggin book if i wanted to dedicate even three paragraphs to the histories of and my feelings about the records.
The mix opens up with a totally killer record by “the 14 year old sensation” Little Carl Carlton. Yes, the Bad Mama Jama Carl Carlton! He has some absolutely essential 45s on the Back Beat label from this era. Label art on this track is particularly awesome, reads that it plays at 46rpm. The second track is by The Amazers and their knockout track “Without A Warning." Rowdy Chicago soul, worked with Curtis Mayfield (he wrote/produced the flip side). Released on the Thomas label in 1967. Up next is the super sweet Darrell Banks track "Open The Door To Your Heart." He had the sweetest voice and the record performed accordingly selling a million copies. He moved on to make a couple records for Stax, none of which made much noise before hit untimely death in 1970. "I Can’t Stop” by The Notations follows. Released in 1970 on the Twinight label this is actually the B side to their “I’m Still Here." I was lucky enough to see these guys perform on the Numero Soul Revue a couple years back, they were amazing performers and super nice guys. (They signed this copy!) Sticking with the Chicago theme, The Accents cut it up with their track "New Girl." I love this song for a million reasons but the way this group works together and seamlessly includes doo-wop/vocal styling with an upbeat soul backing always impresses me. The O'Jays "Whip It On Me” switches things up a little with a latin-tinged hip shaker that I never hear people get psyched on, but I really like all the early (and later!) O'Jays stuff.
Ray Johnson’s instrumental generically titled “Soul City” is next but it’s a real foot shuffler and butt wiggler and definitely a stand out. Betty Lavette (before the spelling changes) drops a serious piece of soul with her Calla single “I Feel Good (All Over)." As always she brings heat and serious strength to the microphone. Heading back to Chicago, The Five Stairsteps bring their (kind of ominous) track "Change of Pace." With heavy stomping in the mix it’s an upbeat number but the song carries a heaviness in it that I find kind of striking, the horns are really heavy and even the vibraphone feels kind of scary. A nice switch up for the sweetness (or, alternately, sadness) that is often associated with Chicago. Toussaint McCall’s instrumental monster "Shimmy” is next on the decks, (Apologies, this is my scratchy copy, before i traded up. Just imagine you’re sitting by the fire while listening to this one!) A super minimal track, Toussaint totally kills it on the Hammond with only a drummer to accompany him. Awesome record. Sticking with the organ-driven jams, The Emperors “Karate” takes the stage giving you a chance to work out your unused martial arts dance moves. Barbara Lynn’s “You’re Gonna Be Sorry” maintains the pace but trades the organ in for a piano and Barbara’s minimalist guitar playing keeping the track in hot shuffle.
Juggy’s “Buttered Popcorn” is only one of two tracks from 1970 and with it’s vamping horns definitely is the closest to “funk” that’s in this mix though it still feels closer to the r&B of the early Bar-Kays to me. Bob and Earl a favorite type of record of mine, where instead of trying to create a dance, they just talk about a lot of different type of dances you can do, I can imagine this song could fill an entire set, stretching it out to give each dance a couple minutes.
Now that I haven’t mentioned Chicago in three sentences, lets get back to business. “Michael” by the C.O.D.s was a massive regional hit and you can hear why, it’s bubbling, upbeat and absolutely infectious! I remember reading about this song and was psyched to learn a little about it and when they interviewed on of the band members they were like “yeah, it was about this guy in our neighborhood, Micheal. Man, he got ALL the girls." So good. Another dance record. Another chicago record… "Do the 45” by The Sharpees released on the awesome One-Der-Ful label is a great track that sounds like it’s recorded with one mic and as a result a pretty unusual mix. It also sounds like someone had been listening to some Jr. Walker just before hitting the record button, not a bad thing in my book. Chuck Wood’s “Seven Days Is Too Long” gets us back into sentimentality. My copy is a UK pressing (no doubt a result of this being a Northern Soul anthem) though stateside it was released on the Roulette label. A perfect combination of danceable and beautiful, this song is a real heavy hitter. The Flamingos (Yes, the doo-wop Flamingos!) drop a come-back, genre shifting scorcher with “Boogaloo Party” (I wonder if the Boogaloo Party took place in Soul City?) Sugar Pie DeSanto’s “Soulful Dress” is one of the few songs that makes me mime wearing a dress while I’m dancing to it. This was her biggest hit with Chess though most of her records on there are all bona-fide winners. In particular her collab with partner in crime Etta James “In The Basement."
Up next is Shorty Long with his "Sing What You Wanna." Most well known for his funny and funky "Here Comes Da Judge” it’s easy to think he can’t put together a tune, especially not one of this caliber but here you have it, replete with all the motown fixins it’s a worthy slab of clean emotive soul music. Jumping back to the beginning of the decade to experience an early Aaron Neville single. Coming from the slightly murky waters of the murder ballad I always feel a little uneasy when I spin this record and people are dancing to a song that threatens to kill their lover if they leave them. Neville is in top form, delivering an extremely menacing and convincing track while never losing a touch of his angelic falsetto. Lightening the mood Wendy Rene waxes about the joys of her favorite food BBQ (isn’t it everyone’s favorite, I’m a vegan and I love the stuff). Mid 60s Stax, literally untouchable. To be fair I had to get one harmonica in there somewhere (and didn’t want to turn to Stevie) so Slim Harpo drops his rolling rumbling R&B shoulder shaker “Baby, Scratch My Back." Closing out the night the inimitable Eddie Holland (from Holland-Dozier-Holland fame) graces us with his scolding of the bad behavior of men "Leaving Here." A great number, it would probably serve some fellas to listen close.
Hope you enjoy the mix!

02. “You Ain’t Too Cool” An hour of Soul and R&B 45s
Greetings from the dark and freezing valley of Western Mass as we recover from the Halloween snow massacre that took out power, phones, internet and all the other advances of Western Civilization that have been chipping away at our ability to talk to other real-life human beings.
Just in from a digging trip to Chicago I got home with a massive box of 45s and I was eager to listen to a lot of my finds (no listening stations in stores, no portable) and of course the first thing to happen when I get home is the power goes out for 2.5 days! As a result, despite this new cache of wax, I didn’t include too much of that stuff, but I got a ton of great sides and made my pilgrimage to the Dusty Groove brick and mortar spot which was great.
Today’s serving of bumpin and thumpin draws heavily on Northern tracks, with some funk(y) tracks sprinkled in the middle and closing up with some R&B. The JJ Barnes and Radiants track that open the mix are both standard bearers of their respective cities, JJ’s clap/tambourine beat couldn’t scream Detroit more loudly if it had a wall of Man O War amps and The Radiants track has all the hallmarks of Chicago with the falsetto vocals, trading off leads and delicate handling of the arrangements.
The Ikettes and Barbara George sauce things up a little with the horns turning from soft to vamping and introduce us to a little of the New Orleans flavor. The Sister and Brothers also hail from Louisiana and drop some seriously killer funk/soul with their ‘Yeah, You Right.' Adding to the gumbo there’s a nice Lee Dorsey Track and Marie 'Queenie’ Lyons, who though raised in NYC, was born and recorded in Louisiana. Bettye Swann another transplant was from Louisiana but relocated to Los Angeles where she recorded some (of my favorite) sides. Irma Thomas also fits this transplant mold that is coming to shape here, being a NO staple but recording this side of decidedly Stax inspired beauty for the Chess label.
Linda Jones and Willie Mitchell are the two tracks who are geographically dislocated here but it doesn’t mean they aren’t welcome additions to the mix, Willie bringing his rager of a track “That Driving Beat” that feels more at home in the Jr. Walker vein than the restrained Hi-Records sounds we’re used to hearing from him. The Linda Jones track would be comfortable coming out of any number of studios over a pretty wide swath of time so it’s fine with me we share the love with the coastal Mid-Atlantic. The flip to this record is just as legit and def worth your time if you come across it.
Sprinkled in for good measure are a few other instrumental movers and shakers; the classic Phil Upchurch anthem “You Can’t Sit Down”, a nice groover from Cash McCall (picked that up in Chicago this past week), a record I hadn’t seen before by the memorably named “Robert, Ron & Eddie” (sounds more like dudes around a cooler than a band), Otis Spann’s freakout “Walking” featuring the smooth dudes Fleetwood Mac showing their teeth and The Interpretations rave up “Snap-Out”.
The last batch of records gets us rolling and rocking with Johnny Rivers’ cover of the Willie Dixon song (made famous by Willie Mabon!) Seventh Son, similarly unusual, we have Ruth Brown reprising her hit “Mama…” which was an early hit for her on Atlantic almost 10 years later on the Phillips label, Andre Williams drops some greasy moralizing in Cadillac Jack in a way that makes it seem like he could just breath songs like this without even trying. I really like how chill the Willie Mabon track is, like it’s missing the deep gut in some of the other R&B tracks but not in a way that’s lacking punch, it’s more conversational and relaxed. The mix wraps up with an absolute scorcher by Donoman and the Lakettes doing “Here Comes The Fool” a track I never ever tire of listening to, no matter what my mood.
Alright everyone, I’m going to go back to thawing my toes. Hope you enjoy.

The posts will remain but without the link to the individual track, when possible please support your local record stores and the artists.

04. Turn It On - An hour of groovin and shakin!
Thanks to some helpful internet stalking reminding, I realized I was rather behind on putting up some longer mixes so let today’s post right that wrong.
This mix doesn’t have too deep of a theme, there’s a pretty broad range in terms of style, year and geography, so while none of those characteristics will help your mind contextualize the music, what will come in helpful is the area between your thighs and back, because ALL of these tracks are killer hip shakers.
To ensure variety, there’s a dash of latin (and latin-tinged), some killer r&b, a couple of great instrumentals (that James Booker record is so bonkers!) and a few burners (I do have to admit, I’ve never played the Mabel John record for a crowd).
I hope you enjoy the mix on this gorgeous TGIF! I’m about to set sail for a week across the pond (any digging tips in Amsterdam or London?!) but I have one post cued up so you’ll get a real tasty 45 next week!
All the best,

05. Do Right Women: All female 60’s soul
(Click title to download the hour long podcast)
I hope this finds you all well with the NBA Draft behind us, Obamacare (which is a terrible name that has become practically official) upheld by the Supreme Court and Syria sadly plunging further into a war as July begins its permanent roast of us here in Western Mass.
I’ve been pretty lackluster in terms of keeping up with the longer podcasts and have had some pretty persistent and vocal complaints so I’m going to try to up the frequency of them (though not at the expense of writing up the singles which I like to do a lot more…). To kick off my (hopefully) renewed commitment to longer mixes today we have an themed mix; a full hour of 60’s female soul! It runs a small gamut of straight soul to some early sixties girl group tracks but they are all united by the fact they are absolutely monster tracks whether they’re sung by a soloist or a group.
One of the tough things about the longer podcasts is I simply can’t give the background on all the records I’d like and it takes quite some time just to put the thing together so I hope you’ll excuse the lack of biographical information on these mixes. As always, if you have ANY questions, hit me on facebook or email, both links provided on the left.
Hope you enjoy the mix, there’s lots of great music to be had!
The track list is as follows:
Candy & The Kisses : The 81 (Cameo, 1964)
The Velvelettes : He Was Really Saying Something (VIP, 1964)
The Marvelettes : He’s A Good Guy (Yes He Is) (Tamla, 1964)
The Blue-Belles : I Sold My Heart To The Junkman (Newtown, 1962)
The Pussycats : You Can’t Stop Loving Me (Columbia, 1966)
The Shirelles : I Met Him On Sunday (Decca, 1958* whoops!)
The Lovelites : I Found Me A Lover (Bandera, 1967)
The Dolls : This Is Our Day (Maltese, 1965)
The Du-Ettes : Please Forgive Me (One-Der-Ful, 1965)

06. Funk In Your Trunk - An hour of funky 45s
It’s been a long hot month since I’ve last put up an hour long podcast so I’m psyched today to give you a nice assortment of funky 45s to help make August more bearable. I hesitate to call this selection “funk” in the clean and pure sense because there’s a lot of co-mingling going on in here. To be honest, that’s how I like things. Mix it up, mush it up.
I do hope you’re paying extra close attention to this mix because it has some very very very serious records in it. I’ve actually been wanting to post a lot of them as singles but haven’t gotten to it and, well, they seemed to fit here and I figured, better to give them a home now.
I could literally go through almost all of these tracks and explain why I love them and why they deserve more than a cursory listen while you’re biking to work so let me just suggest you give this mix some time because there are some really heavy tracks on this mix.
I hope you enjoy!
-George / Snack Attack.

07. Singles Mixer - Volume Two
Afternoon everyone. I’ve been meaning to get to this volume of Singles Mixer where we collect up all the individual 45s I post on the blog here into an hour long podcast but you know how time slips away…
Anyhow, I’m in the process of migrating all the data to a new server and figured this was a good time to pull down all the singles even though it took much longer than I had hoped.
Enjoy these 45s, their original posts will remain on the blog so you can learn more about each of the tracks (that’s why we’re all here in the first place!) by just scrolling back a little bit. There are some moments where the continuity is a little awkward but the quality of each of the tracks lets you see past whatever missteps there are in time and style.
I’m actually not too far off from Volume Three at this point so keep your eyes open for that coming real soon…
Anyhow, tracklist is below.

08. Courtney’s Birthday Mix!
My good pals were putting together a birthday party at their beautiful house in the woods of Western Mass and asked me to put together a mix. Though I don’t think this mix reflects how I would have dj'ed the party if I were mixing live it covers a lot of territory. It is meant to be “dance-y” but it kind of goes off track a few times (on purpose!) though ultimately I’m happy with (I even ended with slow dances!) and is great for driving (maybe less so for partying?) Most tracks haven’t made it up here on the blog so I thought, even though it’s a little out of unusual, it was worth posting and gives you some new tracks to check out!
Hope you enjoy!

09. Singles Mixer Volume Three!
Here’s the latest collection of the 45s up on the site. Almost an hour of awesome R&B, soul and sweet, sweet sounds. As usual the original posts will remain for reference. There are a couple of “multi-song” posts in here so you’ll notice a little repetition but it’s for a reason, swing on back a few posts and find out why!
Things have been really busy in my personal life so I haven’t given the blog as much love as it needs but I’ll keep plucking away as time allows. In addition just picked up a new laptop, nothing fancy but it gets the job done, so that should help.
Had some good luck with records lately so hopefully get to share soon.
As always, thanks for listening and enjoy the music!

10. Been Wrong So Long: Deep Soul Podcast
Been a bit of a slow month here at the blog, sorry for the lack of action but I’m contending with a healthy number of distractions. That being said, I have a been slowly re-building my digital library of 45s (this time on an external drive!) so I should be able to start putting together some nice hour long mixes that represent some nice corners of my collection.
Today’s podcast is by no means my ‘specialty.’ As I’m always inclined to search out more mid-tempo dance friendly stuff, when I’m forced to choose between two records the deeper, slower tracks are usually the first to be thinned out of the “to buy” pile. Still, I have my more relaxed moments when I like to sit down and have my heart ripped out and stomped in a puddle of tears Plus, if the stereotype holds up, as the days pass and my hair continues to grey and thin, I’ll be drawn more and more into the slower tunes with age.
That being said, while these records aren’t the most obscure they aren’t merely toss-offs in my collection, they’re true-blue favorites that get plenty of air time in my universe and I am excited to bring to you! There are a number of records in here I would have liked to spend more time talking about but I’ll let you take them all in as a grouping.
Hope you enjoy these tracks as much as I do!

11. You’ll Lose A Good Thing: 60 minutes of (sad) soul
Afternoon Everyone! Despite the fact I know people would much rather listen to an hour long podcast than me posting individual records it has been some time since I’ve put together a long form mix. It’s primarily because of time restrictions but I’m making a better effort to get some more up since “more long mixes” is one of the main pieces of feedback I get about this blog.
So, today’s mix was originally going to be a lot of sad and slow songs as the unifying theme but I felt compelled to mix it up at least in tempo if not tone though there are a few tracks in here that are upbeat.
A few notes about the mix. It’s a “Butler Burger” with the Jerry Butler/Curtis Mayfield/Calvin Carter composition “He Will Break Your Heart” book-ending the mix. I’ve been particularly obsessed with the Laura Lee version that closes things out as of late and love how she handles such a beautiful and heavy song with a slight air of whimsy while never abandoning the sadness and longing built into the song.
I’m not going to go on at length about each 45 in this mix but I do want to point out the Nina Simone record as one that has been on my want list forever and is just an absolute monster. I could basically listen to her breath and get emotional these days but this track is wild.
The Spellbinders 45 was a record I just stumbled upon while listening to piles of records I didn’t know and boy what a find! Great up-tempo Northern Soul goodness. Also kind of a curiosity is the Sam The Sham track which is a B-side on the Ju Ju Hand 45 which is really nothing special, but the flip “Big City Lights” really caught my ear.
There are also some deep favorites of mine in the Donnie Elbert (probably one of my favorite vocalists of all time), Irma Thomas and Byrdie Green 45s. All very heavy performances that stay with you long after the tone arm has auto-returned.
Ok, I’ll let the music speak for itself on this mix and I hope you enjoy these records as much as I do and that they help you through your days, nights, weeks and seasons.

12. Coming On Strong
Back with another hour long podcast and in record time but first want to make a few apologies and points of clarification. I was looking back at the blog and realized there are a few tracks in the most recent podcast that were in my last mix! It’d been so long I totally forgot what was in there and had some duplicates. Although they’re amazing and all these songs deserve repeated and attentive listenings it’s a bit silly considering the number of records that could take their place the second time around.
Not that anyone cares tooooo much but I had repeated hard drive / computer crashes where I lost all my “digitizing” work and only now have begun to rebuild all those tracks (on an external hard drive this time), though I don’t have any of the photographs or biographical information that they had previously. As such, my mental organization of what’s what has been sort of muddied. Anyhow, may happen again and they’re great songs so no big loss.
Today’s mix is, not unlike the previous one, lacking a definitive theme other than being a great pile of mostly upbeat 45s. The opening track by Brenda Lee is a favorite and I had actually been planning on a post with a few other versions of that song but realized I could make this whole blog about “versions” and didn’t want that to happen. Still, definitely worth checking out the excellent versions by Don Bryant and Tony Ritchie, the former will prob get a post at some point anyhow and the later is a little outside of what I usually cover here but enjoy nevertheless!
The two other 45s I want to single out here are the Brenton Wood track which is absolutely bananas. The flip is an instrumental that is earth shakingly good. Funky Funky wah-wah and so great production and a little bit of a curve ball for his discography which I want to say is quite a remarkable collection. Too frequently he’s pigeon-holed into near-corniness one hit wonder territory with Oogum Boogum Song and Gimme A Little Sign but he’s got a remarkable collection of records with his name on them and it’s worth your time in almost every case.
Finally want to call attention to the Isley Brothers track. Early in their career, on Atlantic and just an amazing, frantic side. I’ve only tried dj'ing this twice and both times people did not not how to deal with it. Waiting for a crowd that knows the line between a circle pit and doing the monkey.
Ok, hope you enjoy the post and just a reminder, all the hour long podcasts going back to when I launched this version of the blog can be accessed on the left side of the page by clicking “hour long podcasts.”
I’ll be taking down the 20 oldest singles and combining them into another Singles Mixer podcast so if you’re like me and prefer to listen to them individually I’d get those now. As always, the post will remain up for biographical reference etc.
Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy!

As always, these mixes just assemble the 45s as they’re posted so there may be some singles that may not seem terribly congruous but I’ve heard from lots of people they don’t care as much for the individual posts and I like having all the songs that were written about available. So, here you go! Singles Mixer Volume Four.

14. Keep An Eye On Love Podcast: An Hour of Sad & Sweet Soul 45s
Welcome back to Musical Episode for another hour long podcast featuring a few favorite 45s from my collection. I know it’s safe and honest to say that about almost every record I post here(I’m known for saying “THIS IS MY JAM” 3 or 4 times a day) but today’s batch truly features a few 45′s I lean on the most for mental health and emotional stability.
The opening track “Heart Full of Love” by LA’s Invincibles, is one that I recommend approaching with caution, it is, in my estimation, one of the most evocative records in my collection carrying enormous power while remaining stark and restrained. The same goes for tracks such as Darondo’s Bay Area heavyweight “Didn’t I” and Jesse Boone’s haunting Georgian “No Particular One.” All these records make their mark and almost overwhelm the listener with their quiet. Towards the end of the mix notice Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland’s “Do What You Set Out To Do" which can barely get started while dealing with his blues-drenched despair at the inevitable end at hand.
A few of the more upbeat tracks (well, upbeat relative to the other tracks in this mix…) including Gwen McCrae’s classic “90 Percent of Me”, Ernestine Anderson’s vaguely Brazilian “Keep an Eye on Love” and Emanuel Lasky’s “I Need Somebody” -which I know is a little scratchy at the outset but listen to the production- add a little bit of momentum to help keep things moving.
This podcast features a lot of records I return to with (probably an alarming) frequency and I hope you’re able to enjoy them as much- if not as often- as I do.
Dig in and come back for seconds!

15. Sophisticated Funk : An Hour of Groovin 45′s
After a long hiatus I’m happy to present another hour long podcast of funky 45s for all of you out there. I know the long form podcast is more popular with folks so I’m sorry for the long delay in between these type of posts.
I just got back from a great trip to Virginia where I scooped up tons of great records which I’ve barely begun to process but definitely lit a little bit of fire. None of the (excellent) records featured today were picked up on the trip but have been floating in a folder of digitized records I’ve been wanting to write about and I figured if they’re not going to get individual posts after this long of a wait I might as well let the live in a mix.
While I had longer posts planned for lots of these records a couple of notes on the mix will have to suffice.
The track that opens the mix is a favorite. Steve Colt, a white dude from Boston giving it his best James Brown and definitely delivers with some ultra heavy drums. The Johnny Guitar Watson track is later than a lot of 45s I usually feature here but I’ve always dug how funky it is and the sing-a-long solo is a favorite. Marsha Hunt’s “Oh No! Not The Beast Day” is an absolute monster from first to last. Jean Knight’s “Do Me” is a funky, synthed up sort of re-tread of Mr. Big Stuff but has enough punch to really stand on its own.
Along with the synth-laden 70′s numbers I kept the mix a little closer to my standard fare with Ken Jones and his killer “Chicken Pot Pie”, the jazzy “Afro-Desia” and the slow burns or John Roberts and J. Gardner.
There’s a range of songs here, some slow, some groovy, some are in the pocket funk but they’re all great tracks I know you’ll enjoy so I’ll let it rest and let you listen!
Till next time,
-Snack Attack / George

16. This is our fifth installment of “Singles Mixer” which collects the last batch of 45s posted on the site into one hour (or so) long mix. As such the flow of these mixes might be unusual and in instances where I have posted multiple versions of a song you may hear the same song in different versions. In this mixer I actually eliminated the Linda Jones version of I’ll Be Sweeter because the record was a little crackly for my tastes. Otherwise, a great batch of 45′s and the posts all remain so if you’re interested in the history of the records you can always read up later on!
Thanks for listening, I hope these records bring some peace into your world.
