As the Family Vibes explain on the last song on here: “Take a look at me! I don’t look too bad once I’m cleaned up.” So in the spirit of second chances and soap and water, here are a bunch of records (mostly) discovered covered with scum / dirt / mold / garbage / what have you and restored to glory by diligent cleaning and begrudging love and care. We will probably bring if not play most of these with the guys from Cold Showers tonight at Big Freak! (At the Black Boar bar—1630 Colorado Blvd. in Eagle Rock! 10 PM and free!) This mix inspired by a Sunday afternoon at Records L.A. and finding an Abner Jay LP at the antique store. (Under “COMEDY”!) Some awesome filthy 45s got left off here due to time drama but that’s the good thing about garbage—there’s always more when you need it.
