Tommy Roe - Everytime A Bluebird Cries

I remember when I was around 9 or 10 my grandfather bought a bunch of albums and gave me the rock n roll albums. One of the albums was Tommy Roe's greatest hits on ABC. I used to listen to it all the time. Slowly over the years I have picked up most of his 45s on ABC and I am only missing a few . I bought this one in the last few months and it is one of his few picture sleeves and one of his harder to find picture sleeve. Not one of his most noteworthy 45s but it has grown on me

MC5 - Kick Out The Jams

We've had the worst cold snap the past 2 days than we have had in quite a while. I picked this classic up from a guy that sold records for over 30 years and primarily dealt in albums. Every once in a while he would get 45's and sold them incredibly cheap.I had bought mail order from him for over 5 years.  He died in November 2012 and I found out as I sent him a check for some 45's and I never got them and the check was not cashed. Looked him up on the internet and found an obituary. This was one of the last purchases I made from him. This is the rare preview pressing. Henry, may you be with God!

Liverpool Set- Walkin The Dog

Here is another cool 45 from the Liverpool Set. I think they do a nice cover of this classic. Picked this up at the last record show in Raleigh.

Etta James - I'd Rather Go Blind

This song blows me away each time I listen to it. What a voice. I've included a youtube clip of Beyonce doing it in Cadillac Records. Beyonce was fantastic in that and I don't listen to her.

Manfred Mann - The One In The Middle

Ok, I have slouched off a bit over the past week. I did not mean to but got caught up in work and now I am back in school for the final 4 month countdown of graduate school. You know the drill...will upload when I can but I think my school load will be fairly manageable. One of my fave Manfred Mann 45's.
