Larry Bright “Bloodhound” (Tide, 1962)
Get your enjoys, Jonathan Toubin Soul Proprietor, New York Night Train

Originally Published on Feb 24, 2017 - In one of the most wildest runs in L.A. history, the infinitely under-rated Larry Bright cut a hair-raising stack of wax for some the west coast’s top labels - Del Fi, Tide, Original Sound, Rendezvous, etc. And both sides of this holy obscurity are up there with the best of ‘em. Bright came to California from Corpus Christie, hit the jackpot with his first record “Mojo Workout,” and spent the next decade sporadically knocking ‘em dead on record and on stage but never could scale his mountain of legal battles, personal problems, and bad luck. Everyone from The Kingsmen to Bill Cosby recorded “Mojo Workout” and Downliners Sect did “One Ugly Child.”

You're listening to my daily addition to the New York Night Train Party Platter playlist. Each track here is recorded directly from my original 45s (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 danc
e parties, this channel is an attempt to stop and focus on one record at a time in hopes to personally learn more about each one and at the same time turn you on to the artists, tracks, labels, etc. I'm just hipping myself to a lot of these records for the first time as well - so you can view this as our journey to learning more about cool old records together! But mostly I hope this music moves you as much as it moves me.
