“Baby Rice,” by Paul Humphreys & Cool Aid Chemists

Funky LA 45Paul Humphreys & Cool Aid Chemists put out a self-titled album in 1969 that contained this track, and the a-side to the Funky LA 45 (on Lizard). I picked this up in a lot of funky 45s a few years back, and found “Baby Rice” to be the standout. I spun this at a wedding once, and the mother of the bride asked me to stop playing circus music and bring back the James Brown. Wounded, I obliged.

“Heart of the City,” by Larry Chernicoff

gallery of air coverLarry Chernicoff’s 1984 album Gallery of Air has some really interesting sounds on it, but this one, “Heart of the City,” seems really modern and familiar to me. I acquired this record by chance in a big lot I bought several years ago. As it says on Chernicoff’s site, this one’s out of print, and unavailable on CD, but he’s selling the remaining vinyl copies for $12 a piece. A steal! I’ve even played this out at the bar from time to time.

Again, I included this on the original Record Jumble disc I did a few years ago. Image is from his site. Glad to see he’s got quite a website out there.
