A pretty song done Ventures style. Follow up to Hawaii Five O- dented the bottom of the charts at #83. It was their last top 100 release. My quest for stock and promo copies of Ventures 45's continues

I managed to run around a little today and went to a few antique stores I had wanted to hit for some time but struck out. I had seen them while at work on the way to other towns so I had them mentally tucked away. What a waste. I went to one and found a bunch of 45's and albums, took them up and was told the prices were inside the jacket. The first one I checked had a hundred dollar price tag on it..."what? Are you kidding me?" The albums were not in that great shape and were worth a buck a piece at best and the cheapest one was $25. The 45's...try $20 bucks a piece. I put them back and wished them luck. Hell, I went to an auction on February 2nd and bought about 180 45's for $110 dollars and that included a copy of the Beatles Please Please Me with the rare VJ Picture Sleeve in VG+ to NM condition [and that is a pricey item]. Here is a recent find...it's the b side of Night of Fear, which I believe is their first 45.

How do we make sense of murder? Three individuals were brutally murdered in Chapel Hill and there are no answers that will soothe or make things better. I had worked with the father of the two women many many years ago. You could not ask for a nicer more caring man. No family on this earth should suffer such tragedy, such sadness. I pray that there is some comfort for them in their time of grief.
