Single Shot: Max Berlin- "Elle et Moi"

Max Berlin's "Elle et Moi" is a smooth rhythmic 1978 french disco track with whispered male vocals. Sounds a bit like a slow jam for sleazy old men. Regardless, this track is totally classic.

Ersen- Metelik / Yine Seni Tanirim (1974)

A rare and excellent 1974 single from Turkish-psych hero, Ersen Dinleten. Top notch. Especially the B-side.

Soreng Santi- "Iron Man" (Finders Keepers)

Amazing Thai version of Black Sabbath's "Iron Man"!!! Recently released on 7" by Finders Keepers in an edition of 500. Now sold out- I'm happy to report that my copy is in the mail! In the meantime, I did manage to scrounge up a digital copy of the "Iron Man" A-side from The Cover Lovers. This kind of thing is what I'm all about. Will definitely post the B-Side as soon as this record is in my hands.

Recently Discovered: Blind Blake- "Night and Day Blues/ Sun to Sun" (Paramount 13123)

Just found this on the Old Hat Records Site.
The biography of Blind Blake remains sketchy, but his recorded legacy is rich and his status as a guitar master is unquestioned. Blake’s repertoire of blues and ragtime was showcased by a string of popular releases on the Paramount label between 1926 and 1932. After that, Blind Blake simply vanished from the historical register.

Blind Blake’s music has long been enjoyed by blues enthusiasts through a series of reissues beginning in the LP era. There were gaps in his body of work, however. One disc that eluded collectors was Paramount 13123, recorded at Blake’s penultimate session of January 1932, a time when Paramount’s fortunes were fast crumbling. By then the company was shipping only minuscule quantities of records to select dealers and distributors, and few have survived to the present day.

Paramount 13123 finally came to light in 2007 when it was retrieved from an old steamer trunk in a trailer park in Raleigh, NC, and acquired by Marshall Wyatt of Old Hat Records.

Side A: Night & Day Blues
Side B: Sun to Sun

Strafe's "Set It Off" is a hard hitting electro classic from 1984. The download also includes the 1986 remix. This track is totally addictive.

Single Shot: Ninjaman- New Throat Fi Chat

This Ninjaman track is ridiculous! An amazing left-field dancehall rarity that samples C+C Music Factory with what sounds like a no-wave/Hollertronix dance beat. How did this song even happen? Its basically so busted that its completely amazing. Why is he talking about telegrams? And also, where the party at?

SIngle Shot: Ian Darby- "Taking The Waterfront By Force"

Ridiculously good electro rarity from 1984. Those analog synth lines are just dripping with the most wistful 80s minor key melodiousness imaginable. This is the unicorn dance track of my childhood dreams. A tip for the hipsters: You probably need this for your next quasi-romantic mixtape.
