12" Spotlight The Feelies - Invitation

It's been a busy several weeks. A few weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night a little nauseated with a stomach bug. So feeling puny put a stop to my plans to hit some yard sales and yard work. And the rain stopped my yard work plans. I did not get around to uploading the Feelies prior to the Colorado -Arizona game and of course CU lost. Then last week I was plain lazy (I was really planning on recording some more 12" singles and I could not find them. I have gone through all my boxes/shelves and I have found I am missing a good dozen or more. I am at a loss as to where they are???? My big fear is they got mixed up in a some records I donated and if so I am just sick sick sick about it. So, with that going on I did not upload the Feelies and CU was annihilated by Oregon. So today, I'm uploading the Feelies as we need a win against Wazzu. I know that the Feelies are not having anything to do with the Buffs winning or losing but it is a good excuse to upload them.

12" Single Spotlight- The Church- Destination

I was looking back to see if I had uploaded any Church items. I found I had listed their 1st US 45. Upon reading that post, I found I was going through some adversity but I have to admit, I don't remember what adversity that is. I think it could have been my father's failing health but to be honest, I just don't remember. It also showed me that we bounce back from adversity. I have had periods of great adversity and stress over the last year but I have maintained my sanity through prayer, exercise, and self care. I am in a very good place but that does not mean that there weren't days where I was so stressed my mind was just scattered.I took time out to engage in mindfulness activities. The mind is going to wander, it's going to go the worst possible scenario and that is so irrational but also so human. LOL...to think this rant/observation started just because I wanted to see if I had uploaded anything from a group.
So back to the Church. This was the 1st 12"single off Starfish, the breakthrough LP from the Church. I remember the 1st time I heard that LP. KTCL in Ft Collins Colorado would play a new LP one night a week at 10pm. I was listening the night this was played. I loved it. I bought it and later on that summer drove to Denver to see them live. Phenomenal song! This started me down the path of buying just about everything I could get my hands on. This won't be the only 12" Church spotlight

Eddie Floyd - Big Bird

The Feelies did the trick Saturday night as Colorado beat Arizona State. I was a happy, but an extremely tired man. They have a bye week this week so the Feelies have a 2 week reprieve...
Here is a soul classic I searched high and low for and finally ran across a copy in February when I was in Florida. Yep, I am a bit slow with my uploads
