Doc & Sal
“Laughing to Keep From Crying”


Recorded for the Dynamic record label, “Laughing to Keep from Crying” was issued as a fierce double-sider 45 with “Can’t Get You Off My Mind” on the flip. Both tunes written by the legendary Ricky Davila (KEDA 1540AM). – JJL



Little Jr. Jesse & The Teardrops
“Ain’t No Big Thing”


Originally recorded by the Radiants in 1965, “Ain’t No Big Thing” has become a soul staple and interpreted by quite a few different artists. Here, one time radio DJ, Little Jr. Jesse, is with his Teardrops unleashing what could be one of the definitive versions. Side note: peep Esteban Jordan’s version for a killer alternative. – JJL
