This is the continuing series I will post every other day while i'm out of town, thanks to Jonathan Toubin DJ of New York Night Train
Many of the best 1960s East L.A. chicano rock'n'roll recordings, are lo-fi garagey versions of soul dance hits rocked up with passion and distortion. Thee incredible Cannibal and The Headhunters' fast and muscular take on James Brown is a classic exemplar of this phenomenon at its finest. Soul power! Don't fight it! Feel it!
This is my daily addition to the New York Night Train Party Platter playlist. Each track here is recorded directly from the original 45 (no bootlegs, reproductions, etc) to give you an idea of what the real deal authentic vinyl sounds like. COME BACK EVERY DAY FOR A NEW FIX! Because the records pass so quickly at my parties, this channel is an attempt to stop and focus on one record at a time in hopes that it'll turn you on to the artists, tracks, labels, etc. But mostly I hope this music moves you as much as it moves me.
Get your enjoys,
Soul Proprietor, New York Night Train
