I'm not messing around. I've been meaning to hep you to Excavation. It's like some black hole of Dallas soul. Seriously, page after page of regional 45s and LPs, with a high percentage righteously tight. Here's just a couple. The first one, "El Segundo" by the Jives just slays me. It's this fluid funky groove that's kind of hard to place. The asshole description would be the Archie Bell and the Drells' back up band meets Fela, with a bass solo that borders on dub-lite. Whatever, it's very cool. The other song is a completely random selection to give you an idea of what the fruits of random clicking can be. You will get sucked in.
