Paul Kelly - Forty Miles to Saturday Night

There does not seem to be enough time to record 45's and thus this blog suffers. But I am rewarding patience with a treat. Paul Kelly is a treasure!  Of course Paul Kelly changed the name of his group to a more politically correct name [the "Messangers"].and then later went solo. He continues to be very active. I found a video on Youtube when Paul had hair!

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Afro

I saw the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion in a small club in Denver right after this song was released. They played with such energy which I thought was absolutely amazing because there were only about 50 people who showed up. Afterwards Jon sat at the bar with a beer and was accessible to all. So, close your eyes and imagine the following fantasy. President elect Trump is having his inaugural get together and the stage is empty. The blues explosion walk on stage, plug in and Jon starts his wailing and they blow the roof off the dump while the president elect has this sickening horrified look on his face. Welcome to 2017!

Stevie Wonder - What Christmas Means To Me

Merry Christmas. This was a down year in locating new and fantastic Christmas 45s to add to my collection. But I did find this lucky charm, rarity that has been on my want list for some time.

The Jam - Down In The Tube Station At Midnight

It has been too long since my last post. Call it a mixture of lack of time, lack of opportunity and shear laziness. This blog has not gone as I would have liked over the past year. Let's see if I can do better in 2017.
I was a late comer to finding out about the Jam. They were not very popular in the states and that is a shame. Some of their US 45's are hard to find and I am fortunate to have all of them [I think].

Jay And The Americans - Sunday And Me

It has been a busy month with work, the Hurricane etc. We lost power for 3 days and had some minor damage and were blessed compared to all those who lost everything. But I am back with a bang, a not so rare 45 [I believe this was the first hit single Neil Diamond wrote] with a very rare promo only picture sleeve. Searched for years for this and lucked into a copy dirt cheap.
