Mystics - Snoopy

 I picked this up a month ago. From what I can gather, this was a loose cover of the Vibrations My Girl Sloopy and inspired the McCoys after they heard it. Of course the McCoys had the monster version and the Mystics are an obscure footnote

Slim Short & The Kays - Black Steer Swing

Rare blue label JCP 45. Yes, it is rough sounding.

Willie Tee - Walking Up A One Way Street

I'm still fighting this nasty crud and wish I would be just done with it. It sure has affected my motivation to post to this blog consistently. Here is a fantastic classic on promo Atlantic.

Ventures - Telstar

I've been fighting a nasty sinus infection the past 10 days. Seems like I write those words at least a few times a year. The one I'm dealing with now has been particularly nasty and kept me out of work 3 days last week. I'm starting some new medicine tonight so I am hopeful the tide will turn this week. I went to a little record show yesterday (even the misery of my sinus issues could not keep me away). Picked a few interesting things for my collection but most of the prices were over inflated. Here is the b side to the recent Ventures post- again one of those interesting Ventures reissue liberty All Time Hit Series 45's.

Palace Guard- Saturday's Child

Here is one I picked up a few weeks ago. Written by David Gates who would later hit the big time himself in "Bread". I believe Emitt Rhodes was still in the band for this single.

The Festivals - I'll Always Love You

Picked up a few 45's yesterday. Probably play at home and not go anywhere tomorrow...but next week is a different story! Friday Soul Night features a 45 I picked up a few months ago.

Huckleberry Mudflap - Blue Surf

I posted a Huckleberry Mudflap 45 earlier this year and it garnered a lot of views. This was the first one I ever picked up. A fantastic slice of popsike.
