from Chicago Saturday Night in the Rain
Basically been neglecting my disco records for a couple years. However, couple weeks ago went to Disco Unusual Social Club where Love Chim, Lee Douglas and Lono Brazil set it off on the dancefloor. Totally inspired me to get back on the horse. Put this one together last night. Feel free to dig in...
I hear River Chim's got a few new things cooking too?

from A Flick of My Musical Wrist
Forget where this mix is even from but it rules my office on the regular. Today's no different. Friday, feeling fancy free. Cruising... and the Rother track just came on. TTTTTT
"Hey Señorita" by The Penguins
from The Doo Wop Box II
Piano, hand drums, hand claps and KILLER vocals. At 1:03 it starts getting deep but by the time the most triumphant/defiant "doo wops" ever come in at 1:23, it's pure fire.
"Voices of Other Times" by Brian Auger's Oblivion Express
from Closer To It
Smoothest groove and such a heartfelt vocal. Guitar solo sounds like it could be the inspiration for Santana's on "Game of Love" for some reason, but I dig that jam too.
"Collie Weed" by Shinehead
"Give Praise to Jah/ The trees are in bloom/ As they first were/ On King Soloman's tomb."
Have a breezy weekend , Chims.
"This Summer Night" by Bertrand Burgalat feat. Robert Wyatt
from Chéri B.B.
When creating your breezy summer jams, please include Robert Wyatt whenever possible. LOVE this.
"Drinking Muddy Water (Mono Mix)" by The Yardbirds
from Little Games
The "aaaaaaahhhhhhhaaaaaaaaa" vocals on this are so psych and haunting. Let's boogie.
"Summer in the City Mix" by v/a
from Recorded at Market Frenzy Studios
Chims-- It's been a while. Made this mix last week on the first warm day of the year in Chicago as the sun was going down. Trying to keep it mellow while the temperature rises in this city. Some Chimney stone classics in here.

from Live in studio on Current TV
Never really was into these guys the first time around. Dunno why really... Got curious about this performance and checked it out. Super impressed. Kraut/Hazlewood goodness... no hits.
"Early In The Morning" by The Stone Lightning Band
from Feel Free To Turn Up
Chims. Hope you have all been well. I've been taking an eye in the sky (tip of the hat to Clunk) approach to the Chimney lately but wanted to post this Elmore James tune for FFF. Feeling SO free to start a blues band. BONUS vid (thanks Luscious) of our Black Cat Bones cover below.
