I did not have to travel to Hungary on a record buying trip to hear the haunting psych funk beats of the track “Selda” by Diger Rokwell because he plays out in Perth and I caught some of his crazy moves last night at Mojos.

Check out “Selda” at Diger Rokwell on Myspace –

The villa in Tuscany,  a drive  in the sportscar to Monte Carlo or perhaps a late night of cocktails and dancing  in Soho. Make sure we have the BASF reel to reel ready because Claude is selecting and he has promised some very groovy essential and obscure library, boogaloo, sixties go go and big beat – surely it would have to be only Volume 1 of a series

if you like this and you are going to London then go here or here or if going to Melbourne go here or perhaps here

marsha hunt large latest

I had this crazy track on Andy Votels’s 2005 comp on Family Records Vertigo Mixed but did not know who sung it. I had seen the photos of Marsha Hunt but did not know she was a singer – in fact the singer of the track.

(Oh No - Not THe Beast Day - Marsha Hunt

(Oh No - Not The Beast Day - Marsha Hunt

Here it is from the 45


Here it is on Vertigo Mixed – heavier and funkier – nicely done Mr Votel

Marsha Hunt was born in Philadelphia, PA, went to University of California Berkley, and eventually ended up in the UK. While in the UK, American painter David Hockney hooked her up as with a job as a background singer for for Alexis Korner’s new band Free At Last. As she ran with that crowd, she would meet John Mayall, where she was initiated into the Blues and the music business, rehearsing, touring, and making music all day everyday. She has sung with Bluesology, and almost joined The Soft Machine, but ended up with Ferris Wheel. In 1968 she starred in the theater production Hair in London, and immediately after that (actually the night of the first show), the whirlwind ride known as her career took off. She was photographed by Patrick Lichfield nude for British Vogue magazine, and male suitors all over London began to line up. She has been linked musically to a who’s who of musicians in the London scene: John Mayall, Elton John, Marc Bolan, and is the mother of a child with Mick Jagger. The opportunities would line up as well. She released a cover of Dr. John’s “I Walk On Gilded Splinters” on the Track Record Label (founded by the Who managers Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp) in 1969, and a follow up full length Woman Child.


..and she put on a nice show – check out the dance troupe and the crazy dancing at about 2:16 and then again 3:10 …
