Take it off! Take it off!

La Mascara Que Canta!  RCA Mexico    This reminds me of DeNiro as boxer Jake LaMotta in “Raging Bull” – over-the-hill and washed up, reciting poetry at a strip club.

Heroes

“Songs and Stories About the Justice League of America” starring The Flash, Plastic Man, Metamorpho (The Element Man), Wonder Woman and Aquaman!   And the villians!   Fumo, The Fire Giant; The Plastic Men; Brunhilde; Mr. Big and, my favorite, The Dehydrator (naturally Aquaman hates him).   This is an LP from 1975 on POWER Records, a division of Peter Pan Records.

Holmes, sweet Holmes

groove Front

Richard “Groove” Holmes   “Six Million Dollar Man” (1975) Flying Dutchman Records   Arrangements by Oliver Nelson.     300 lps of funky organ jazz from the big man behind the B3!

One of Groove Holmes’ best albums of the 70s — thanks to some electric blacksploitation arrangements from the great Oliver Nelson! The format’s a bit tighter here than on some of Holmes’ Groove Merchant albums from the earlier part of the decade — an approach that’s almost like soundtrack scoring at times, but which allows Groove to stretch out a bit more on the solos, and take things way past the already-funky head arrangements penned by Nelson. Mike Wofford’s also on the record, throwing in some great electric piano and Arp in underneath Holmes’ own funky Hammond — and other players include Tom Scott, David T Walker, and Oscar Brashear — who all contribute nicely to the record. Titles include “Disc-o-Mite”, “Salsa de Alma”, “Dumpy Mama”, “Mama’s Groove”, “125th & 7th Ave”, and “Six Million Dollar Man”, the theme from the TV show! © 1996-2010, Dusty Groove America, Inc.
