Jan Davis - Flamenco Funk - 1969

This morning I ventured off to Van Nuys Blvd in search of things of which to take pictures. The street has lots of flavor and there were a few interesting things to shoot. There are also several thrift stores and I thought I would check one out to see what the record selection was like. Because it is a different demographic than Burbank I wondered if I would find some different records. Boy was I in luck. This store had hundreds of hip-hop records from about 10-13 years ago. Clearly a DJ dumped his entire collection in there. I picked up a bunch of records that will eventually make it here. However this record made this list for the first record to digitize. The moment I heard the opening track of Walk Don't Run done with a Flamenco guitar I knew this was going to be the first record up. The whole record is an interesting mix of jazz and funk mixed with Flamenco guitar. You don't hear that every day. On the liner note on the back of the jacket the write writes, "If you think that doing the Frug, Jerk, Watusi or Pony to flamenco guitar music sounds utterly ridiculous; a few weeks ago I would have agreed. Not so anymore." So yes this is a one of a kind type of thing. So hopefully you'll enjoy it.

I do want to apologize that there is a low frequency hum on the rip. I may re-rip it. After getting this all up and done I think I figured out what the problem was with my stereo. In the mean time...
