I can't wait till you hear this week's batch of goodies. Plump and juicy, phenomenal recordings are low-hanging everywhere online, awaiting your frenzied lunges. Take a peak at my selections, then follow the links to the blogs hosting them.
Highlights this week include a seldom-seen Warner Bros. release by a brother-sister act (Smokey & His Sister), a Japanese funk unit that channels the JBs with outrageous aplomb (Osaka Monaurail), and a two-disc compilation of Aboriginal country music from Down Under (Buried Country). Wow!
