Goldberg-Miller Blues Band - The Mother Song

 I picked up this beauty years ago. It was one of those magical moments. There was an estate sale and it was cancelled due to rain. I went back by and the owner was there and said, "The sale will be next week". I asked if they had any records and she said, "I have a big box of 45's, come on in" Her father had been a DJ and sure enough was a box of 400+ 45's she sold me for $40. I have featured quite a few of them in this blog over the years. What was amazing about this one was the promo with the hard to find picture sleeve and of course the 2 page letter to DJ's. Of course Steve Miller went on to bigger fame.

Jan & Dean - From All Over The World

Theme song from the T.A.M.I. show. This was not the most popular Jan & Dean song but I think it is catchy and it comes with a fantastic picture sleeve.

Don And The Goodtimes - I Could Be So Good To You

I think I will have a picture sleeve week. Spent a little while yesterday scanning after I was able to get rid of an intense headache. This was not a big hit but it is a catchy little song

Remains - Once Before

I picked the stock copy of this 45 up in South Carolina a few weeks ago. I've had the original promo as well as the Sundazed reissue for years

Ventures Special Album Spot Commercial #2 Underground Fire

It was a scorcher today...103 in the town I worked out of today. I would normally say perfect beach weather to get wet but there has been a rash of shark attacks at the beach so I guess one would be best served to go to a pool. Only pool I have access to is my dog's wading pool and he's not sharing.

As I write this I am listening to a nice Gene Ammons Jazz album I picked up Saturday. Very relaxing. It was tempting to skip out on an upload tonight but I promised part 2 of the Ventures Radio commercial 45's. I love the announcer on this one... "A heavy liquid sheet of heat" or "stripped, a pagan subterranean ritual"...pretty heavy stuff, man.

A recent follower relayed there was a commercial released for the Hawaii Five O release so I guess there is another on my search list.

Sparkles - No Friend Of Mine

I picked up a few albums [for me] and some 78's [for my friend] at the flea market this morning. I came home, made some home made jalepeno poppers stuffed with cream cheese and grilled them for a snack while I listened to a Hank Williams LP I bought today. It's kinda funny mentioning Hank Williams as he is night and day different than tonight's upload. But Hank Williams has special meaning for me thanks to Grandpa. I think back to when we used to go to flea markets or yard sales and how he would buy everything vinyl up. I do know Grandpa would have easily given me the Sparkles.

 I first heard this song due to the Ohio band The Cynics when they covered it. When I eventually heard the original it was a must find but has proven very illusive. Until now, that is. Thanks to my friend Craig in Maryland who sent me this unplayed 45 from 1967.

One last thought, I hate it that Divishare became funky and is unusable leaving me with years of posts that have no sound. If there are any past posts that anyone wants to hear, drop me a comment and I will gladly upload it.

Wow this was a long long week and I'm happy it is the weekend. My friend sent me a box of records today including the 45 that will be posted tomorrow night....a fantastic slice of 60's punk that I have searched forever for. Tonight's 45 was from my find in South Carolina last week and is a South Carolina soul 45. I have a garage single on this label as well that I picked up last year.

Jeff Daniels - Switch Blade Sam

I've been a bit lazy with the uploads but maybe this rockin number will make up for it

The Ventures - Album Spot Commercial #1 The Horse

This was one of those really really long days. I had problems with my work computer and I am hoping it is not down for the count....that will really set me back with all the work I have to get done. But it is what it is...at least it's not my home computer.

I'm sitting here listening to the MOON lp again. Wow what a fantastic album. I had posted one of their singles previously and all I have to say is "Thank you Charlie" for giving me this lp...I'm glad it is not your cup of tea.
Tonight is one of the hardest Ventures 45's to find. Liberty put out to my knowledge 2 Promo radio spot 45' commercials with this one being the first. I'm lucky to have both but this one set me back a few clams.
I put both sides on this

The Newbeats - Thou Shalt Not Steal

I had a busy but productive day. Completed some yard work, recorded some 45's to the computer. Then a friend of mine called me and told me some things he picked up today and will be sending me. I am psyched as one of the 45's is something I have searched forever for and it will be here before the end of the week. I hope it is here in time for Saturday's post!!! Went to have dinner with another friend and his wife and on the way dropped off some 45's to another friend. He had a copy of the MOON lp on Imperial. I just finished listening to it twice. Fantastic!!!!

Here is one I picked up yesterday- I didn't feel like waiting too long. Soulful and encourages us to be honest. What better way to end a Sunday.

Models - Bend Me Shape Me

I had a very good day today. I got up early and ventured into South Carolina. I met a real nice guy and bought some good records from him that should make this blog someday
