THE PRETTY THINGS – PARACHUTE (1970)

What do you get when you combine the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks, and Pink Floyd? Why, the Pretty Things! Okay! According to wikipedia (you know, the Truth), this British Invasion band “made it” in the UK, but sadly never in the Land of the Double-Down. Until now!
The medley at the beginning: (“Good Mr. Square” at 1.49 is the shit.)

DARONDO – LET MY PEOPLE GO (2006)

Luv N Haight released this compilation of rare 70s soul tracks by this dude Darondo, and we thank them for that.

DJ CAM – MAD BLUNTED JAZZ (1995)
The name really says it all. Cam sorta belongs to the downtempo genre, but this first album (both studio and live tracks) is really just some nice jazz/hip-hop stuff.

MAGNUM – FULLY LOADED (1974)
Funk, soul, psychedelic, etc. Love that album cover.
