BILLY LARKIN & THE DELEGATES - PIGMY (part 1)


This is the type of record that I like to refer to as a "driving down the road feeling cool" jam; I copped that description from an old pal of mine who, after getting a mix tape of soul/jazz & funk/ jazz from another friend said "yeah, those are the kind of songs that you play in your car and you just feel real cool when you're driving". I agree; the type of tunes that feel like your own personal soundtrack that may not be a car chase through the streets of San Francisco but at least makes the mundane errands or commute just a little bit groovier.

Billy Larkin was a Portland, OR based Hammond B-3 organist, and he cut a DEEP groove here on this massive cut; an instrumental of monumental proportions.

from 1964...
