It's been very busy around here between foot and ankle issues with me and Nathan preparing for Record Store Day. I had to go to Ankle Foot Orthotic braces, or AFO braces. Needed for gimpy, physically challenged attempts at crate digging. So, carbon fibre and Kevlar save the crate digger's day. So Allard Blue Rockers are now a key tool when record hunting.

So, without ado, TheCzarsOf45 give you today's new off beat 45 single. It is actually Cuban Mambo meets jazz and has nice vocal asides. So, to quote the often cool Xavier Cugat, "Yum, Yum, Delicious" so we have before you "Watermelon Man". Cuban bongo beats meet jazz big band. Mercury hit this classic out of the park. Estimate that this 45 was issued sometime in 1963. And it's a vinyl pressing DJ single in Green Label livery. And was well loved and used on air.
