    I just picked up "Pure Cane Sugar". It is a blast from the present that sounds like the past. I am amazed at how they got the lo-fi sound of the 60s and 70s nailed. When the drummer hits the cymbal, it sounds like breaking crystal. Some serious mojo not unlike some lost tracks of the JB's. A fun disc!

    5-year bump!! :D

    I got Sugarman's Boogaloo a few years back and just assumed it was an old bargain bin LP that somehow miraculously got reissued on CD. And it really got under my skin.

    Last night I looked them up on iTunes and checked out Sweet Spot. It actually made me laugh out loud it was so ****ing cool.

    It blows me away that this stuff isn't from 1968 at all. These guys actually have a MySpace page! :p

    If you're like me and you've got a soft spot for deep-fried Hammond organ Soul, definitely check these guys out.

    I love the Sugarman 3!! Im a HUGE fan of Daptone records and everything they put out. Neal Sugarman is a great play and so is everyone else in the group.
