    Goodby Old Friends LP (1978)

I'm not quite sure who in the Bay Area discovered this, but a bunch of sealed copies reared its ugly head on here in the mid 00s.  It's become one of those mythical raers that will cost you a car payment to acquire (unless you seek out the reissue which doesn't look all that common either).  This is an insanely eclectic private press latin funk jazz rock gospel record from the Bay Area.  It's got a bunch of ripping tracks on it like the latin funk jazz rock gospel song "Rejoice".  The opening cut "He's Coming" has tons of raw uptempo funky jazz action with a Santana-like rhythm section.  But wait, there's more!  This album has a  2 minute "breakface" moment on the steady latin groover epic "Te Amo" half way through the song.  It's funky and tough and guaranteed to appease the crate diggers.
