JEFFREY MORGAN'S MEDIA BLACKOUT #749.494.120!
Gordon Davis - Shaft (Warner Bros.) :: Can you dig it?
with Diona Davies and Wayne Adams - The Wedding Dance Of The Widow Bride (Jericho
Beach) :: It's not every day you hear an album that begins: "I'm internationally recognized as a really, really lucky
guy. Everybody knows that I'm the lucky Jew."
The Book Of Lists
- The Book Of Lists (Scratch) :: I meant to type "shitfaced Brit psychedelia" but I'll honor my typo as
a hidden intention and admit that "stiafes brit psychedcecia" is a much better way to describe this Jarvis Bowie
meets Suede Floyd glam pop album.
Dustin Cole with The
Specialest - Try And Love Me (Scratch) :: Crystal clear vocals on cavortin' cruise control drift languidly
over a barren backwash of minimal and at times deeply distorted in the red instrumentals.
Isaac Hayes - "Theme From Shaft" (Stax) :: Right on.
Amplified Heat - Amplified Heat (Arclight) :: Feelthy mungified Texas rock that's
stronger than dirt and sounds just like Lemmy fronting Blue Cheer. Bonus points for stealing the intro from Rush's "Any
Way I Can" and reinverting it.
ALO - Roses & Clover
(Brushfire) :: Track one on this professionally spit-polished platter is derivative enough of the Springsteen Allmans to get
my attention and original enough to keep it until I start groovin' on the tasty Simon & Fabfunkle vibe.
The Bay-Kays - "Son Of Shaft" (Stax) :: Hot buttered jive turkeys.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Various Artists - Stax 50th Anniversary
Celebration (Stax) :: Stax wax is bax to celebrate its 50th birthday with a snatch-smokin' bag of hot reefer releases
that're both old and new. This twofer hit from the original box set is not just required listening, it's a 100 percent cumpulsory
pussy-poundin' screw-e-delic delight. So ditch those effete Motown pansies and drop down for the real honey-humpin' happening.
Be seeing you!
