rudy lambert - love / let's stick together
   

johnny heartsman was one of those legendary characters. the veteran bay area bluesmen spoke of him with awe and reverence. they talked about a man who played on hundreds of 45s from the mid 1950s until the late 1960s. heartsman was a master guitar and keyboard player, a fine arranger, and subtle vocalist. he could let loose on the organ as well as flute, the latter he proves on rudy lambert's amazing double-sider which was released on the tiny club 7 label some time in the late 1960s.

tr-161:
wayne carter - mad mouth woman / wahoo, wahoo, wahoo
   

in the early 1970s wayne carter recorded these two beautiful sides together with drummer virgil "pat" patton and saxophonist luther taylor. wayne was a supper club musician, which meant, "funk was not permitted." this standard precluded him from selling his record at gigs. so he tucked his records away, handing out a few to friends and family without any professional distribution. this is probably the reason why any of his three 45rpm singles are so damn hard to find nowadays. it was high-time for a re-issue of his two finest recordings, and here you go!
wahoo, wahoo, wahoo and mad mouth woman are also featured on the 12" ep wayne carter & the organ twisters (mootrey's studio ms-9022).
