Jay And The Techniques- Dancin Mood

I thought I would do a surprise and upload a Friday Night Soul dancer. I have been fortunate to have a couple copies of this fantastic dancer in my life and both copies looked like they had never been played. I think I'll keep this one.

The BRYM-MARS - Keep On Goin / Brighter Than The Stars

Nice North Carolina 45 with a garage and soul feel. I picked this up this summer and have just been lazy on uploading. Most releases on this label are from the Embers.
I picked up some Christmas 45s over the past year but again my laziness did not get them recorded. Maybe next I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and hopefully I can spend a little more time on this blog next year

The Fireballs- Say I Am

I was thinking this week how I used to ask for listener requests. It has been years since I have done that so I thought I would put that out there. Any requests please feel free to send them to me. Might get me active with posting

Tonight I have a 45(s) I searched far and wide for. Managed to get it directly from a person who access to a warehouse in New Mexico that was related to Norman Petty and they were unplayed stone mint. So The Fireballs released this as What I am...went nowhere. Tommy James & The Shondells covered it as Say I Am and had a smash it with it. FIreballs re-released it as Say I Am--Nothing. Killer versions

Ronnie & The Del-Aires - Drag

Yesterday was the first day in ages that I have had the chance to go vinyl diggin...and what a day it was. I ended up bringing home 130 45's and 6 lp's. Alot of the 45's were beautiful near mint promos like this one.

Leon Hayward - Pain In My Heart

I was sitting here today cleaning some 45's I have not had a chance to listen to or clean and realized it's been ages since my last post. It has been a hectic time since my last post. We had returned from our family reunion and I posted the Carl Perkins 45. Then in late August my father died and we drove back to Colorado. I did some record searching just to keep my mind occupied as it was obviously difficult. Then we no more and get back from Colorado and Hurricane Florence hits...what a few months. So, this Leon Hayward 45 was one I was cleaning today...pretty sweet sounding song if you ask me

Carl Perkins- Dixie Fried

Yes, I am still around- just super busy. My computer crashed in May and had to buy a new one and of course I could not find my Roxio program. Good thing was I was turned on to a free audio program. My finding records has somewhat slowed down. My wife, dog and I went on a trip to Colorado and my wife let me hit some record stores on the way. I was really disappointed in the Denver stores...they used to be amazing. Favorites on the way was the Love Garden in Kansas, Independent Records in Colorado Springs, Shangri La and Goner Records in Memphis. The 45 for tonight is one I have been searching years for and it was fitting I found it in Memphis. I see tons of Carl Perkins 45's but somehow this one has eluded me.
