Live at the Haunted House - May 18, 1968
Fresh news from the fine folks over at Soul Sides: Rhino Handmade has just released a limited run of 5000 copies of Live at the Haunted House (May 18, 1968), featuring the first incarnation of the Watts 103rd, as well as a limited edition set titled Puckey Puckey: Jams and Outtakes 1970-71. Both of these sound as savory as a plate of smoked brisket, and arrive just in time for summer. Head on over to Soul Sides for the complete lowdown and a taste of the Haunted House set.

Amazing album. The original cover was better, though. It had the group sitting amongst some cheesy Greek columns, looking like they had just got done partying with Socrates. Wildly beatnik! And to think that the Haunted House was Zardi's Jassland before that, where Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie and a host of bebop era greats made Hollywood Boulevard swing.
