Full of Love

I recently found this 45 in my collection. At first I thought it was released by Pepe Rivera and couldn’t find much information on it but then I realized the band is actually called Nombres (also Los Nombres) and this 45 features Pepe Rivera. The 45 was released in the mid-1970s on Lorain Sounds, a … Continue reading Full of Love

Long Black Veil

I’ve written about my love for the song Long Black Veil before. Imagine my surprise when listening to a Barry White album this weekend and realized he too recorded a version of the song! Barry’s version stands out because it’s an instrumental track with a lead psychedelic guitar leading you through the song. I was … Continue reading Long Black Veil

That means we sang a lot of … Continue reading How Great Thou Art

Is There Any Love

Whoa…I stumbled on this song by Trevor Dandy while driving into work this morning thanks to the great Numero compilation, Good God! A Gospel Funk Hymnal. According to Numero’s site, the song “has since gone on to be sampled by a plethora of artists, including Kid Cudi, Ghostface Killah, Monsters of Folk, and Common.” I … Continue reading Is There Any Love
