Bobby Womack - Across 110th Street

Del Shannon - The Answer To Everything

Spending hours playing promo country 45's influenced this upload. This was a B side to a minor hit of his but I prefer this side. This has a country feel to me and I think Del would have made a fantastic country singer. One of my earlier posts featured Johnny Carver doing a Del Shannon song and I would have loved to have heard him sing it. The grand haul yesterday had 3 Del Shannon 45's in but alas, they were not the 2 I'm looking for.

Bobby Fuller Four - Never To Be Forgotten

I made the haul of a century today. I was out running errands and had to go to the nearest Petsmart for something. There was road construction and I ended up going the wrong direction. I turned around in this parking lot and behind this store was this little flea market. It was more of a shop that had Nascar collectibles. I walked in and asked he had any records. He said "yea, follow me. Here are some albums" (about 15) and we walked around a corner and he pointed under this table and there were 2 HUGE boxes of 45s. I asked how much they were and he said 10 cents a piece and he got them from a radio station that closed. I looked at a few and realized I would be buying a bunch so I said, "how much for all of them", and he said "30 dollars". I quickly gave him the money and we loaded them in the car. By my guestimation I would say there are over 3000- yes THREE THOUSAND 45's! I have spent the last 8 hours going through them. Probably over 1500 are promo country. The rest are promo and stock 60's garage, rock and soul 45s. I found items I have wanted for ages. Can't wait till I have a break from school so I can copy them. Stay tuned!

MFQ - Don't You Wonder

One question: Why was this not all over the radio in 1968?

Another recent find and yes, a cover version

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Mauds - When Something Is Wrong With My Baby

One of my all time faves. Brilliant cover of the Sam & Dave classic

Spirit - Uncle Jack

Another recent pickup. I never was a huge Spirit fan but there are a few songs such as this, Nature's Way, Fresh Garbage, Mr. Skin that I like very much.

Joe Jones - California Sun

I always liked California Sun by the Rivieras. Imagine my surprise when I recently found this single and learned the Rivieras version was a cover version.  It was one of many classics written by Henry Glover, who also worked with many artists and was instrumental in encouraging the Hawks to go out on their own and become the BAND.

The New Lime - That Girl

I've been attempting to upload this for serveral days but divishare has not been cooperating. But finally I have succeeded.
My last class of the semester was Saturday and I have a complete week off before getting back into the school grind on the 12th. My intent was to upload songs every night since Saturday but I would get home, get busy and totally spaced it and then the divishare issue. I did spend some time Sunday scanning and recording to the computer so I have some songs ready to go. I went to the record show the previous Sunday and did pretty well. I bought nearly 100 45's from one guy for less than a buck a piece, and also picked up some RSD left overs that I had wanted. For tonights upload enjoy a record show find from last week.
