Entries in General Crook (2)


New Digs | November 2017

Lp's have continued to take a bake seat with to my renewed focus on 45's - but that doesn't mean I'm still not drifting over for a topline forage while in my usual spots. Some killer longtime wants have finally popped up piqued my interest as of late. It's almost as if the record Godz are reminding me that treasures are still to be found and will be here when I come back to the "heavy" side. Here's a rundown of some of the gently used tunes I've brought home over the last month. 


Rufus Thomas - Did You Heard Me? (Stax, 1972)

Charles Earland - The Dynamite Brothers (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (Prestige, 1974)

General Crook - S/T (Wand, 1974)

Betsy Legg - Betsy (BCG Records, 1971)

Tony Joe White - Tony Joe (Monument, 1970)

Dee Felice Trio - In Heat (Bethlehem, 1969)


General Crook - "Do It For Me"

This is one of the funky 45's I picked up a couple months ago at the record show when it swung through town. I had never heard the song, and had little familiarity with General Crook's mid-70's output, but I was hopeful the 7” would sound as good as it looked. This is my first record score from the Down To Earth label, and after a solid introduction, I now know to keep my eyes peeled for their other releases. Happy diggin'!
