The Tiki's - Stop - Look - Listen - Cream In My Coffee



Today we get a carefree little garage surf type rocker. Nothing hard or edgy about it but a nice little nugget of early 60's pop rock surfer culture. Cream in my Coffee even has a little blues and soul vibe going on. I coul dsee these tunes being in some B Grade Beach movie. Cool little 45. Dig it!

Great Funky Instrumental with with a serious groove and bad ass bass and keyboard work.

Toni Wine - Toni's Tune - River Deep - Mountain High


Another one to file under "what the fuck"? Not sure who Toni Wine is but she is obviously one sick human. If this record was made for children then you will know what a sadistic person Toni was because this will only give your child NIGHTMARES! I can't even begin to understand that there are actually song writing credits as well, since the sounds are obviously that of one of Satan's haunted Jack-In-The Boxes! And just what is with the banging in the background? Caskets closing and babies yawning.... just weird man, weird....

It never ceases to amaze me how many screwy & fucked up records there are in the world and just what were these people thinking when they pressed them?

Happy Nightmares!!!

Edit: Here the Wiki Low Down on Miss Toni Wine : If you so desire... Oh yeah, and i just found out this is from 1967.

Further edit for Mister Mark: I've added the flip!

Drivin Dynamics - So Fine - Sully 917



Driving Dynamics: Featuring early Randy Meisner of The Eagles

Nebraska garage rock combo the Drivin' Dynamics formed in the state's Gering-Scottbluff area in late 1961. Singer/bassist Randy Meisner, guitarists Larry Soto and Richard Rohnke, and drummer John Ankeny made their debut at a private party and within weeks landed a gig in support of Bobby Vee. Throughout 1962 the Drivin' Dynamics appeared regularly at the Henry, NE, dancehall Little Moon Lake. With little competition, they quickly emerged as the region's most popular rock & roll outfit. Rohnke left the lineup in late 1962 to enter the military, prompting the addition of saxophonist Paul Asmus. Soon after, the Drivin' Dynamics self-released their debut four-song EP, featuring the instrumental original "Sidewinder." After a New Year's Eve gig, Ankeny also announced plans to enlist, and upon adding Soto's younger brother Bobby, the group began touring beyond the western Nebraska circuit, promoting their appearances via Oklahoma City's 50,000-watt radio station KOMA. In the wake of Beatlemania, the Drivin' Dynamics updated their repertoire, adding British Invasion covers alongside their traditional R&B staples. They also expanded their roster, recruiting lead guitarist Dave Margheim and pianist Steve Cassells. In mid-1965 the group signed to Ray Ruff's Sully label to cut their second single, "So Fine." The record fared well regionally, and by year's end the Drivin' Dynamics were regularly playing locales as distant as Rapid City, SD, often outdrawing national acts in the process. In February 1966 the Drivin' Dynamics traveled to Denver to compete in a battle of the bands contest, coming in second to local favorites the Soul Survivors. Soon after, Meisner accepted the Soul Survivors' offer to join their ranks and relocated with them to California, where the act renamed itself the Poor. Meisner later resurfaced in the country-rock combo Poco before ascending to multi-platinum success as a member of the Eagles. In the meanwhile, the Drivin' Dynamics returned to Nebraska before going on temporary hiatus. The Soto brothers reunited the band in mid-1967, and while close to three dozen new members rotated through the lineup in the decades to follow, upon their 2000 induction into the Nebraska Music Hall of Fame the group was honored as the longest-running rock act in state history. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Pan Earth - The Mandingo



Some killer funk jams here from 1975 on the Family Spirt record label. 75 is a little late in the funk game w/ most tunes by then crossing over into the disco category but these hold pretty true. Some Funky & FUZZY & buzzy guitars help the cause as well! If you follow this blog at all ya know how the devil feels about fuzzy guitars!!! I think the instrumental version is even better/fuzzier where the git can really be heard w/ out the vox... As for Pan Earth i know nothing. I took a shot based on title alone, and thinking it might be disco because of the year i almost didn't, but i'm glad i did as this one has made a bunch of mixes and comps for friends. Hope you dig it as much as me...?

The Lords - Fire - And At Night



The Lords were the most long-living and successful beat band of West Germany. The band's main headquarter was Düsseldorf/North Rhine-Westphalia. No other German band was so active during more than 40 years.

In 1959, The Lords started out as a skiffle band in Berlin using partly custom-made instruments. In 1964 when Beatlemania and the British Invasion swept across the world, they turned into "Germany's First Beat Music Act" and developed their classic style for which they are still known in Germany today. In the period from 1965 until 1969 they had 11 hits in West German pop charts. Their first hit single from 1964 was Shakin' All Over (originally recorded by Johnny Kidd & The Pirates in 1960). Their other hits included the blues traditional Poor Boy in 1965, Poison Ivy in 1965 (originally by The Coasters, 1959), the Baptist traditional Gloryland in 1967, and Rockin' pneumonia in 1967 (originally by Huey "Piano" Smith & the Clowns). They also appeared as supporting act of The Kinks and The Who on German tours of the two English bands, and performed on the contemporary TV music program Beat-Club several times. These Beat-Club performances are still repeated on German TV well into the 2000s, being largely responsible for today's classic image of The Lords back then. Their 1960s cover versions of Shakin' all over, Poison Ivy, and Gloryland still get much more airtime on German radio today compared to the original, earlier, or later recordings of these songs by English and American performers whose versions are therefore comparably unknown in Germany.

And at night was the A Side, but for me Fire is where it is at! This is pretty wild...
