Screaming Trees- Time Speaks Her Golden Tongue

I've had the opportunity to watch some music documentaries over the past weekend on Amazon and I've enjoyed everyone one of them- one on the Residents, one on The Knack, one on Sun Ra. Highly recommended!
It seems like there are quite a bit classic reunions going on. I read Dream Syndicate will be putting out a new LP, The Feelies put one out in February. The Chills had a RSD 45, the Afghan Whigs have a new one on Sub Pop [recommended]. Scott Miller & Game Theory will have a Posthumous release  soon [my pre-ordered copy should arrive in a few months thank you very much].   So it's tie for the  Screaming Trees, time to get on the band wagon. Of course I doubt that will ultimately happen, but we can always ask. I remember when I first picked up this classic [double black vinyl] right when it was released. What a front cover. And the songs were killer. I later picked up a copies on white vinyl and then of course the nearly impossible to find red vinyl [rumored to be band copies and limited to 60 copies]. Of course I'm not in the band but I did luck into a copy. Happy Mother's Day and Happy Sub Pop Sunday

Leopards - Psychedelic Boy

I bought this years ago from BOMP mail order. I eventually sold it or traded it. That always bugged me a bit so I searched out for another copy and recently found one. I used to see this all the time but of course that was when I did not want a copy. Things seem to dry up when you want it. This copy comes with the insert and nice VOXX sleeve. The LP that this came from is on my listening rotation.

Afghan Whigs - Come See About Me

I have been away from having a Sub Pop night. Here is a classic cover version from the Afghan Whigs with their video as well. They have a new album coming out in a few months. I pre-ordered my copy last week.

Reverend Cleophus Robinson - He's Done Great Things

I went to Raleigh today for a Record show but came away with little to show for it. There were few people with 45's and some people had ridiculous prices on regular thrift store stock 45's you can find for a nickle. You might say the most enjoyable part of my morning was the banana bread and Starbucks coffee. So I sit here relaxing before I hit the mattress and enjoy the good Reverend. I picked this up a few weeks ago on my little spree.

The Other Half - Mr. Pharmacist

The big complaint is time. I just don't have time to record and scan to this blog as much as I would like.  I don't even have the time to search for records as I have in the past. But that being said, I did take yesterday off and hit my favorite little record spot. I found some interesting things but scored one major find that I have been on the prowl for over the years. It is finds like this that makes it all worth while.

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!
