Bill Hjerpe - Navigation Blues

My wife is right. I have Obsessive Compulsive tendencies (records). I am aware of it and it really hit home this morning while organizing some 45's. I found I had some Ventures duplicates with label variations for El Cumbanchero so I uploaded the pictures. How many variations do I need.
 For tonight,  I always loved this one and recently picked up the picture sleeve for it. I also decided to upload a song to my other blog, the neglected one.

Mark Radice - Richest Man In The World

My blog is obviously at the mercy of circumstances outside my control. Look at how many posts I have made using Divishare that are unplayable. All I can do is move forward and hope that what I use stays put for awhile.
On a happier note,  how about another Mark Radice song....too bad the others are buried in Divishare

Quadrangle - She's Too Familiar Now

I spent a cold morning running around and only found 10 45's. During that time I listened to the last Saturday morning Bill Kelly Program on the Underground Garage as they are moving his time slot. Big drag to that one as his program is the best.
This 45 was on my want list for ages. This copy has found a good home.

Robb and Dean Douglas - I Can Make It With You

Been a busy time and I have had no time for the blog. Plus the other site I was using identified I had already exceeded my free use. So, I'm experimenting with other options and hope to learn to embed the mp3's into the post. We shall see.

I went to record store day early last Saturday and was about the 50th person in line. The store opened about 8am and I arrived just before 6am. It was a beautiful morning and I sat on the sidewalk enjoying the weather and drinking some coffee. It ended up being a very long day due to other issues [long damn story]. But I bought most of the stuff I wanted so overall I can't complain.

I always liked the Poco Seco Singers version of this 45 and found this about a month ago

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.
