Bohannon – Stop & Go
Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Bohannon – Stop & Go

Image: 1616310 Even if Hamilton Bohannon had never started his
own solo musical project, he would have a long and
rich background to his name. Before the 60s had
ended he’d played in local bands with Jimi Hendrix,
toured as a drummer with Stevie Wonder, and
served as the bandleader and arranger at Motown,
providing backing for top-like acts like Smokey
Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, and many
more. Gradually he made his way to Los Angeles to
sign with Dakar Records in 1972, recording and
releasing his debut album the next year, after
recruiting a backing band which included session
giants like Ray Parker Jr, Wah Wah Watson, Eddie
Watkins, and Leroy Emmanuel, to name but a few.
Stop & Go was released in 1973, and featured a
tried and true formula of hard-hitting, bass-heavy,
accented disco-funk. Although the album was only
a muted success on the Hot 100 charts, it excelled
on the club charts, making dancefloor hits out of
tracks like “The Pimp Walk”, “It’s Time For Peace”,
and “The Stop & Go.” It also featured Bohannon’s
most well-known tracks, in the club banger “Save
Their Souls”, which over time became a
frequently-used well of sampling material, notably
on tracks by Jay-Z, Large Professor, Kool G Rap,
Public Enemy, and DJ Vadim, among many others.

Image: 1615556 $2 from each copy of Smile Now, Cry Later sold on Black Friday Record Store Day 2017
will go to The Greater Houston Community Foundation to help with relief for areas of
Texas that were affected by Hurricane Harvey
When it comes to living legends in the Texas and Latin Music pantheon, few have been at it longer and are more revered by their fans and peers than vocalist,
songwriter and bandleader Sunny Ozuna. Born and raised in San Antonio, where he still resides, Sunny became a star right out of high school in the late ‘50s and
hasn’t looked back in the six decades since.
After releasing dozens of albums since the mid-1960s (in Spanish and English), Sunny still keeps a busy schedule and loves performing as much as he did as a
teenager. His classic 45s regularly change hands for hundreds of dollars among collectors around the world, affirming his timeless appeal.
As a logical next step after Big Crown’s excellent (and Sunny-approved) Mr. Brown Eyed Soul compilation from September, the label has started digging into the
vaults of Sunny’s Key-Loc Records label to unearth some legit soul classics – which are hard to find even in San Antonio, and clean originals will cost you a pretty
penny if you ever luck into one – and have not been on vinyl since the late ‘60s. Each has been remastered and includes original album art.
First up is Smile Now, Cry Later, a 12-song platter which first hit in 1966. As with most Sunny LPs, this is a mix of soulful originals – most notably, “Smile Now,
Cry Later” and “Put Me In Jail” – and provocative, wide-ranging covers. Cases in point on the tributes side of this great album include the Sam & Dave shouter
“Hold On I’m Comin’”, “Forever,” made famous by both the Marvelettes and Marvin Gaye, and a song that Sunny performs to this day, and the ‘60s Louis Prima
crooner special “Just A Gigolo.”
The band is tight, the sound is honest, the vocals are dusky and deep, and the album is an undeniable soul and Texas music classic, ready to be discovered by a
whole new generation of music fans. Dive in and be ready for a permasmile, thanks to that patented Sunny sound.

Each has been remastered and includes original album art.
Second in the reissue series is The Missing Link, a 10-cut, all instrumental album, and the tracklist is a wild ride indeed. Ranging from hip soul – James Brown’s
“Soul Pride,” The Inclines’ Muscle Shoals groover “Pressure Cooker,” and the Meters classic “Cissy Strut” – to a wide swath of ‘60s Texas Latin party essentials (“Uno,” “Rosita Bonita” and “La Pecosita”), the Sunliners are in top form all throughout. It won’t take much to envision a San Antonio backyard BBQ in the early ‘70s with this long player spinning in the background, on repeat.
Instrumental party albums were all the rage back when this hit in the late ‘60s, and Sunny Ozuna and crew show here that they could groove with the best of them. Throw it on, break out the back deck smoker, and let the good tunes roll.

Insight & Damu The Fudgemunk (Y Society) – Travel At Your Own Pace (BF RSD)
Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Insight & Damu The Fudgemunk (Y Society) – Travel At Your Own Pace (BF RSD)

Image: 1615578 In 2006 Insight the Truncator (Boston) and Damu the Fudgemunk
(Washington DC), started recording their debut album under the moniker
Y Society. Entitled, Travel at Your Own Pace (TAYOP) the album was frst
released in October 2007. In hindsight, the year would be one of the
last years where albums were designed for long term digestion, and a
handful of releases from the era survived as undisputed classics to the
masses. Today, conceptual albums are almost archaic in a genre built
upon storytelling and themes.
With TAYOP, Insight and Damu put the message in the music. The album
title served the two as a roadmap to completion of its 13 songs and in
return, the fnished product serves as a navigation aid to the listener
maneuvering through life within themselves and absorbing the outside
world. From adventures of fscal responsibility and imaginative tales of
time travel to deconstructing one’s obstructions and beyond, Insight’s
rhymes confdently steer the listener on whatever path they have chosen
for themselves. The goal of the album is to empower. From start to fnish,
the array of uplifting lyrics is somewhat like modern day proverbs, but
not proverbial.
Musically, Damu the Fudgemunk pulls from a deep body of in?uences,
that give it its unique identity and charm while paying homage to the
foundations of their predecessors. The Legendary Marley Marl cosigned
the album as a “refreshing” effort of the times. For a project of such
character, the general reception does not re?ect the magnitude of
acclaim by it’s cult following. Receiving mixed reviews in a foggy time
in the industry, Travel at Your Own Pace still managed to sell out of it’s
original production. However, it has been long out of print for a decade.
In response, original vinyl pressings have fetched several hundreds of
dollars per copy in the used online markets of Discogs and eBay. The
progressing careers of both Insight and Damu in addition to their label,
Redefnition Records (also celebrating 10 years) prove that in a murky
2007, they all knew where they were traveling and how to arrive. Even
with their growth, a Travel at Your Own Pace repress has remained an
inevitable inquiry and recurring expectation to loyal supporters. The
answer is here and the wait is fnally over.
