Blume - “Do It Now” (Mad City) - Great funky 45 that unfortunately has an audible scratch. Until I can find another copy, it will have to do. As a chronic procrastinator, this 45 should be my mantra.

  • What Does It Take (The Ten Plagues)
  • By: The 5th Cup featuring Theodore Bikel
  • 168 Plays

The 5th Cup featuring Theodore Bikel -  ”What Does It Take (The Ten Plagues)” -  Yup, Passover funk jazz. A collaboration between composer Gershon Kingsley and poet Bikel, this album is like a corny Jewish version of a ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ style religious concept LP ode to the seder. What up to Paul Martin, who first hipped me to this.

Foxy - “Trouble” (Double Shot) - Super funky and super cheap 45 that can be found for a couple of dollars easily. I’m fascinated by this one because I have posted another version of this track by Brenton Wood that is done in such a completely different style. Check it here:
