Afro Mania  performed by Preston Epps  1967
Recommended by tinks [profile]

An absolutely mind-melting stormer from the king of the bongos, Preston Epps. Epps hit it big in the late 50s with the tune "Bongo Rock" (which was covered to terrific effect by Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band in the early 70s). This tune goes beyond the novelty aspect of the previous hit, though, into some crazy hyper-speed tempos and incredible breaks.

from the single Afro Mania (Jo-Jo 101)

Las Estatuas de Marfil  performed by Los Yaki  1967
Recommended by tinks [profile]

Tijuana's favorites race through a tough Question Mark-esque organ 'n' handclap version of "The Philly Freeze".

from Volumen 2 (Pickwick Mexico)
available on CD - La Gran Epoca de Los Yaki (EMI Latin)

  19 Jul 05 ·RCA76: I absolutely love this group, right on!
3-2-1-Ah  performed by Los Canarios  1967
Recommended by tinks [profile]

These Canary Islands boys try their best to disguise their accents on this snarling proto-Stooges number with almost militaristic drumming and ethereal backing vocals. The flip to the club classic "Get on Your Knees".

from the single 3-2-1-Ah (Calla)
available on CD - Planetary Pebbles 2: Exitos a-Go-Go (AIP)

  20 Oct 03 ·shaka_klaus: i love this! great stuff!
The Day You Take One, You Have to Take the Other  performed by The Marvelettes  1967
Recommended by tinks [profile]

Classic uptempo Motown girl sound! Fits the Berry Gordy formula so perfectly that it should have been a huge hit. Features a terrific bubbling bassline and mesmerizing finger snaps!

from The Marvelettes (Tamla)

  19 Apr 01 ·scrubbles: Ooooh, I dig this song - gotta love those Smokey Robinson lyrics! "A little bad comes along with every good/You've got to take the bitter with the sweet."
  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Reminds me of 'Don't Mess With Bill'. Quite an old fashioned sound for 1967...The Marvelettes didn't seem to really keep up with the times. Good though.
Hello, Hello  performed by Claudine Longet  1967
Recommended by tinks [profile]

Oh, the breathy coquettishness of it all!! When she asks "Would you like some of my tangerine?", I just melt.

from Claudine (A&M)
available on CD - The Very Best of (Varese Sarabande)

  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: This was also done by a group called The Sopwith Camel' in 1966...that's good too.
