Monkey Mind – 12/24/2012

Hope you like the mess this week. I think that Red Krayola song belongs after the Gabor Szabo/Bobby Womack. I’m sure of it, actually. Enjoy. The find of the week is that odd Roots of Hip Hop collection of early- and mid-20th century blues “raps” on Harte Records. The 1970 Scott Dunbar reissue on Fat Possum is a nice treasure, too.
