Black Skinned Blue Eyed Boys – Equals
Notable as one of the U.K.’s first interracial bands, the Equals stormed through the mid-’60s and beyond with songwriting chops, potent live shows, and a sound that fused pop, blues, maximum R&B, and elements of ska and bluebeat. Original vocalist Eddy Grant would go on to a healthy solo career after the Equals splintered in the early ’70s, but various versions of the band led by co-founding member Pat Lloyd soldiered on as their early material was discovered by new generations of fans.

Done It Again – Space Invadas
Steve Spacek’s plaintive-as-honey voice shines anywhere. He’s sounding especially and putting out with Space Invadas partner Geoff Barrow. “Do It Again” gets some of its charge from the relatively raw backdrops Spacek sings against. A cool interpretation of “Making It Better” by The Barons (1971).
A Funk for Fela – Minimoogli
Happy (Make You Happy) – Max Sedgley
