    Managed to get one of the last 3 Soul Slabs from the site as I didn't get out yesterday. Looking forward to it!

    Huh, weird. It said only 3 remaining when I ordered, now you can just order. Well, whatever, can't wait to get it.

    Well plus $5 shipping if he's a prime member

    And no, did not know out of the wilderness on the albums a remake. Hmm. I wasn't too thrilled with the first single from the album, off to sample this remake

    Edit - slightly slower groove but still sounds alright to me. Still have high hopes for this one!

    yeah for some reason their media mail shipments take 3 times longer than if I ship media mail from my home. I should probably just pay the extra $5 for priority but I'm Balancing being cheap with buying direct

    If you haven't grabbed the latest 45 from Benjamin & The Dreamdancers - DO IT! It's great!

    Also, I got the notification that my copy of The Como Mamas LP has shipped!

    I just nonchalantly picked up a white copy of the Como Mamas LP (in fact my buddy who works at the shop literally just handed me a copy assuming I would want it) ... and when I input it into Discogs I see copies for sale at $95? Isn't that kinda crazy??

    Anyway, great great album. Those ladies sound so good with a backing band! A+

    I listened to it last night ... KILLER stuff. They went for an early '60s gospel-soul groove on this one, and even mixed it in mono. For an acappella group, the ladies respond beautifully to having a funky band behind them.

    The white vinyl pressing is very quiet and the mastering is impeccable.

    Another solid winner from Daptone!
