House Of Jack - James Royal

There are too many groovy mod 45s out there to mention, however James Royal's funky number "House of Jack" tops my ever-expanding list of personal favorites. The grand introduction sounds like something from an epic Tarantino showdown. The rest of this 1969 party anthem has an undeniably delightful "good time or bust" vibe throughout. Listen for yourself and see if you don't get hooked.

A 1965 release of Nat Adderley/Oscar Brown's "Work Song".


  1. Hey man, you are awesome...
    "Rodrigues" has taken the intro for his movie "Planet Terror".
    Never thought of hearing the whole song.
    Thank you so much!

  2. Thanks for the kind words and for helping me pin the music to the exact movie. It sounded really familiar! Not quite Tarantino, but Rodriguez is that same ballpark. I've always appreciated directors who crate dig and offer unique soundtracks to accompany their movies. Tarantino is also known for discovering some great vinyl gems.
