Boys Next Door - I Could See Me Dancing With You

I took advantage of my time away from studies to record some tunes to the computer. The Boys Next Door were cool...and I love this "b" side...enjoy!

Paul Revere & The Raiders - Cinderella Sunshine

Excellent last class today. Now I am out of school until the 20th. How about my favorite PR & The Raiders 45. Anybody seen a picture sleeve on this one. I've seen reference of one but I don't think there was one.

Little Eva - KeepYour Hands Off My Baby

What a hot and miserable day. Finished my paper and finalizing my 2nd project that is due. Looking forward to a few weeks off from school. I always hated the labels on 45s related to Bell Records, Amy Records and Dimension as they easily rub off the writing....whose bright idea was that anyway

T.C. Atlantic - Twent Years Ago (in Speedy's Kitchen)

My paper is starting to come alive but it had better as it is due on Saturday. I will be glad for the 3 week break until fall classes start.

John David and the Cinders - No, Not My Heart

Tonight I'm in the mood for a raver, and since I was asked to flip this baby over I did. Never say I don't aim to please.

John David and the Cinders- Day Before Tomorrow

Ok, so the other side is a raver and would probably go over much better but I felt like a moody ballad.

Autosalvage - Rampant Generalities

I had planned on an upload last night but was wiped out. I imagine my uploads will slow down a bit come the start of September as I will be working late, and it remains to be seen if I will turn the lap top on when I get home.

George and Teddy and the Condors - Nite People Make It

Spent the day in the library working on my last paper for this class.

Mid Knights - Somebody Somewhere Needs You

I had a terrible headache this afternoon that nearly went into a migraine. Thank God for muscle relaxers and the 3 hour nap I took when I got home from work. But that put me behind on working on school stuff...damn! So, another quick post..

Astro-Notes - Monkey Workout

Hope everyone had a good start to the week. I'm back to the grind tomorrow. How about a little frat music for a Monday

Thyme - Love To Love

I took a break last night from everything but a movie. It was a nice back to a routine.

East Coast Run - I Felt The Earth Move

I was tied up with working on my school project on Skype last night with several classmates and was too beat afterwards to upload....since we are putting finishing touches on tonight, I thought I would upload early. I've noticed that some of my uploads have had a mixed reaction with many Aces or good and equal number of fair or yuck. I try to be good and not do things to get a reaction but tonight I thought I would upload something I figure few will like. I know nothing about this group..I think it is a North Carolina label and group but my limited research on it gave me no information.

Knight Bros- Temptation 'Bout To Get Me

I have been working all evening on our project for school and it is coming along nicely! Only have time for a quick post as I need sleep. My initial thought was to say FI, but it only takes 5 minutes to do...need to be consistent! So enjoy this classic. The Rascals do a killer version of this as well

The Craig - I Must Be Mad

Only thing to say about today was that it was blistering miserably sticky boiling hot. I think it was over 100 with the heat index. I'm sitting here with a nice glass of lemonade, working on my project and thought I would take a break...enjoy this recent pick up

Don & the Goodtimes - Turn On

I've spent the last 4 hours or so working on my project for Saturday and I feel as if I am spinning my wheels....looks like a little more library time is in order tomorrow.

Friars - Leave It To Me

Took an hour or so to copy some newer pick ups from the past month to my computer. I needed the break away from school work

Lyrics - Mr. Man

So I put the fnishing touches on my paper this morning and went to class. In the afternoon, our professor offered to review papers as they were not due until 11:55pm tonight. Well, she had some issues with my paper so I had to do revisions which I just finished and emailed off. Now for some rock and rolllllllllllllllllllllll

Thomas Bailey - Wish I Was Back

This was a recent find from last month. This has been a stressful week at work, as well as work on my paper. I felt like a blusey depressing song tonight. You know what that means....I must find us a bouncy sunshine bubblegum song for tomorrow night to bounce back.

Elliot Small - Girls Are Made For Lovin

I'm not so wordy tonight....paper is getting me down a bit. Looks like I will have a little library time tomorrow night. I picked this soul 45 in the run down building I have written about in the past.

Mark Radice - Natural Morning

I find record collecting sometimes to be a matter of luck, guess work, perseverance, begging, and sometimes flat out weighing the finances. Take the post from last night, I pure lucked into that 45. Some of the most valuable items in my collection have come from luck and guess work. I have a pretty good working knowlege of records but not as as good as many of my followers. I am in awe of your knowlege. I will often buy a record if it looks out of the norm. Sometimes it is so bad I am sad I spent money on it. Sometimes my toes curl it is so good. I don't have the financial means to drop $400 bucks for a record. I salivate over many items that are outside my means. That is where luck and perseverance comes in. It is the thrill of the hunt. Going to a junk shop and pulling out a stack of 45's and seeing endless Helen Ready and Anne Murray 45's and then bam, that promo Doors single is right in the middle. Talk about many times have I been tempted to stop flipping through LP's because of all the polka or mitch miller lp's I am looking at? I keep going because of positive reinforcement of my memories. Like the time I found at a yard sale a huge box of polka lp's and forced myself to look through them all. They were all in perfect condition crap, but you know what the last 2 lp's were? An early sealed Johnny Cash lp on Columbia, and a perfect in the shrink wrap with the 1.97 price tag, probably never ever ever ever played Meet the Beatles...a buck a piece my dear friends. Or the time at the Salvation Army where I was looking through beat to hell copies of Andy Williams lp's only to come across a perfect copy of Velvet Undergrounds debut LP......35 cents!
Yes, those finds are fewer and fewer these days. But when they happen, all is right with the universe. Yow, this is the most I have written in ages...guess my working on my paper is getting my creative juices going....If I would have written about empowerment, social justice and self determination I could have included this in my!
This was a recent pickup. I never was into teeny boppers but this song is just too catchy. I believe it was his first release when he was 8 or 9 years old. This song was supposedly recorded by Frankie Valli....would love to hear his version. I uploaded other Mark Radice singles last year and I have one more to get to sometime in the next year.

the Satans - Makin Deals & Lines and Squares

I thought I would upload a firecracker double sider for the 4th


Sunday, July 03, 2011

Sight and Sound - Alley, Alley

Nice little bubblegum sounding Fontana 45.

Saturday, July 02, 2011

Blue Beats - Extra Girl

Nice day out of school and I took advantage hitting some yard sales, making a few pretty nice scores. But tomorrow it is back to working on my paper. For our Saturday night songs, we have a brillant obscure 45 I absolutely love. Great sleeve as well.

Pamela Webb - Hold On I'm Comin

This was a recent pick up within the last month. A pretty heavy version of the Sam & Dave classic.
