VA – Rubber Soul Clap, Volume 1 (2010)



Various Artists – Rubber Soul Clap, Volume 1
Private pressing 2010
Flabbergasted Vibes Special Products (FBV-01)

This fun little compilation was something I had put together as a holiday gift for a friend last year, with promises to put together a second volume that is still unfinished. The idea should be pretty obvious – exploring the long arm of influence of the fabulous foursome into the furthest reaches of funkiness. They shall be named in the interest of this blog surviving a little longer, nor shall any song titles be listed here other than in the back cover art above. Some of the selections are well-known, even over-played, others much less so. Lots of cool stuff here, but I think The Crusaders probably steal the show. I hope you enjoy it, and – who knows? – maybe Volume 2 will see the light of day before year’s end…

  2. Awesome thank you! <3

  3. Really cool stuff, I love Donny Hathaway's cover of "Jealous Guy". Looking forward to part 2 when it eventually arrives. Cheers.

  4. Ola Flabbergast,

    Nice compil of BeatleSoul, and on my birthday too. Still, I love your site first & foremost for the wonderful Brazilian Sounds & Stories that you post. A propos Musica Brasileira: would you know who is the (female) singer of (Anibal Alves de Almeida's) Chorando Sim? The song is featured in Philippe de Broca's action-comedy That Man From Rio (1964), with the rest of the score by Georges Delerue. Your help would be appreciated!

    Keep up the great work. Grs Barry
