the-13th-floor-steppin-out-front

The one and only album we’ve ever seen from The 13th Floor – a hip little combo from St Louis, produced here by Oliver Sain in a great blend of jazz, soul, and funk! There’s a depth here that...

rasputins-stash-front

A killer debut from Rasputin Stash, a funky group who work with all the long-haired inspiration you’d expect from their name! The groove is a mix of guitars and tight horns – undercut by the kind of heavy basslines...

jackie-wilson-beautiful-day-front

The Jackie Wilson style soars into the 70s – in a mode that’s definitely different than Wilson’s Brunswick work of a decade before – but which also show’s a really bold evolution in style! Jackie’s in the higher end...

Creation 1974 Creation front cover

Review by RDTEN1 This collection’s tentative claim to fame probably rests with the fact it was an early release by Leon Patillo. Patillo went on to a mid-’70s stint with Santana and then fame as a Christian singer and...
