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!

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Afro

I saw the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion in a small club in Denver right after this song was released. They played with such energy which I thought was absolutely amazing because there were only about 50 people who showed up. Afterwards Jon sat at the bar with a beer and was accessible to all. So, close your eyes and imagine the following fantasy. President elect Trump is having his inaugural get together and the stage is empty. The blues explosion walk on stage, plug in and Jon starts his wailing and they blow the roof off the dump while the president elect has this sickening horrified look on his face. Welcome to 2017!
