Roger & The Gypsies



"Pass the Hatchet, Pts. 1 & 2" by Roger & The Gypsies on London, albeit an Argentinian (or so I'm asuming, it came from Buenos Aires) pressing. Plays at 33 1/3 rather than 45 rpm. There's a little guy in the lower corner of the other side of the sleeve as well ...

Are there anymore seven b recordings with international pressings?

Jeebus! How cool is that? Now my mind is filled with images of South Americans listening to Eddie Bo scream "Chop it! Chop it!".

I was kinda sorta hoping it'd be in Spanish (note that "Pasame el Hacha"), but ... well, I'm still trying to figure out the 33 1/3 thing ...

What I'm really looking for is "Soy carpintero"

WOW! Hard to believe.

The 33 1/3 thing is stranger still. I have a James Brown instrumental EP, on a Smash 7" ('Grits & Soul')with 6 tunes that plays at 33 1/3; but squeezing three songs per side is the reason for that. . .

I think I have something similar by Eddie Mitchell ...
