Dug Dug’s ‎– Smog (1972)

HEAVY Mexican garage-psych!  One of my top albums in this genre, I’m actively looking for the other albums in Los Dug Dug’s discography, but they’re not easy to track down in the wild!  Discogs is cheating, no challenge in that (for me).

Grupo Oz ‎– Grupo Oz (1972)

This lp is a 2011 reissue of a rare platter of early 70′s Mexican funk, originally only relased in Mexico and Spain.  It’s pretty laid back and American sounding, similar to War, Mandrill, Santana.

Beginning Of The End ‎– Beginning Of The End (1976)

Morning funk jams, via the Bahamas. Strut Records reissued both albums from their brief discography, including the more popular 1971 debut,  “Funky Nassau”. This followup album features a decidedly more finessed approach, relying on more American sounding arragements than their debut.  It’s got deep tracks, but it sounds far more tailored to my ears.  Mind you, when you’re tailoring towards Temptations/Four Tops and Blaxploitation it’s gonna sound great, and it does.  Check the music link, decide for yourselves.  If you dig it, these reissues sound great on wax.  Original analog master tapes, beautifully mastered and pressed.  I want all my reissues to be like this one.

The impact Oasis had in the 90’s cannot be understated, and they helped bring British rock music back into the mainstream. Their songs help define a generation of youth culture as Noel Gallagher’s perfect songwriting met the brash swagger of his brother, Liam. It was lightening in a bottle, and they become one of the biggest, most popular bands in the world.

Their influence can still be heard…

Lost Bob Marley live recordings rescued from hotel basement

From The Guardian

Live recordings of Bob Marley and the Wailers, which were found by chance after spending 40 years in a damp hotel basement, are to appear at auction.

The reel-to-reel analogue tapes were recovered during the clearance of a hotel in Little Venice, west London, but, with water damage, mould and grime oozing out, they looked beyond repair and were going to be binned.

But after a…
