Melting Pot

Our first all vinyl show of 2013, featuring a few records I’ve already gotten here in the new year (including the Ray Barretto Acid gold label copy I recently flipped out over at new store Gimme Gimme Records in Highland Park!). The weather here in LA had a lot to do with the second hour of the show. The rain had all pushed through and we were left with clear, breezy and cool skies that always seems to bring to mind parts of John Handy’s “If Only We Knew.” I so rarely play it (I think once on the Blue Note at Album 88, once on the KCRW.COM show I used to do) because it’s such a long song at close to 27 minutes. Every second is well worth it. Same goes for “Blues On A Westside,” which I’ve already talked about here. Closing out with “Looking At Tomorrow” from John Mayall and Eric Clapton reminded how happy I am to own that “Roots” record yet again…look for more on that later in the week. Until then enjoy these sounds, I’ll be taking a Super Bowl break from the show this Sunday but I’ll leave you in the capable hands of Seano from KPFK’s Soundwaves. Back in a couple weeks with lots and lots of new music and hopefully a suprise or two.
