Jackie Wilson and Count Basie - Chain Gang

I hit the bi-annual record show in Carrboro NC today and I have to say it was a pretty pathetic showing. I walked out with nothing. There were few people with 45's, several of the individuals had overpriced scratched slabs of wax and one seller said, "the rare stuff is the box here below". I did not look, he had crazy high prices on the generic crap....another seller had boxes of nothing of interest unpriced. Albums were ridiculously priced. I had better luck at the flea market but even there I picked up a dozen 45's, a Del Shannon LP and the Beach Boys Stack o Wax UK import LP.

The Stone Circus - Mr. Grey

I had to work today so no searching for records. However, a nice box of 45's arrived in the mail. There is a guy that has record auctions 4 or 5 times per year and I don't remember how I found out about him but I have probably been bidding for 10+ years. He always has a nice selection of stuff all over the map and minimum bid is a buck. I won a bunch in his last auction and they came in the mail today. Tonight's posting was in the box. I bid more than a buck but not much.  Interesting that the label has 3 minutes 5 seconds but it actually plays just over 2 minutes...was the album version longer?

What do you want reposted??????

Divishare appears to be working  on resolving  the issue. If they  eventually  do not, I probably will pick and choose what to upload from past posts due to time constaints. Feel free to let me know what you want back up. I will probably  go forth with using the new player.

Hank Williams - Ready To Go Home

Not sure what the issue with Divishare is but it won't let me upload anything let alone play previous files. I'm trying another program, hope this works.
Here is a Hank Williams 45 I picked up last week at my favorite shop. It's a little rough around the edges but worth a listen.

DivShare issues

DivShare seems to be having some issues, or rather, I am having issues with it. I noticed it last weekend after it was down awhile. I hope to find a solution soon. In the meantime, I'll tell you a story of last Saturday. I drove in the rain to see my step son last Saturday, take him out to lunch and he happens to have moved to a town where my favorite record store is. I went there first, found some cool 45s then hit a record show in another town. Made a mistake of buying some 45's from a jerk I have bought from before. He sold me crap last time and this time he over charged me [of course I did not figure that out until I got home] and one of the 45's had a bad warp and another one was cracked worthless. He was squirrely when I started to look the 45's over and distracted me. Of course I figured all this out when I got home. And then I remember he did that last time. I am not a big fan of dishonesty so I hope he liked my money, because it's the last he will ever get from me. There is another record show tomorrow but I decided not to go. It's not a very good one and I know he will be there and I'm still seething from last week.
