Tuff Darts - Who's Been Sleeping Here

I thought I would start the week out with a killer Powerpop 45. I find it difficult to believe this is not more in demand and is really cheap considering the prices for some of the Sire 45's out there (see Ramones from last week). I found their LP this past year and one can pick it up for hardly anything

Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs - Thunder N Lightnin

 I picked this beauty up the same time I picked up the Say I am/What I am 45's back in 2018. I always see Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs 45's but they are always the same ones---Sugar Shack, Daisy Petal Pickin, Bottle of Wine. I never see the mid 60's Dot 45's anywhere and they are some of his finest

Ramones - I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend

 Ah, the frenzy of an auction. I ran across this online record auction that was being held from the collection of this late 50's early 60's teen recording artist. It started last night (lp's and 78's) and ended tonight (45's). There were some real nice 45's offered but the prices were more than I wanted to pay. I did win some 60's Motown picture sleeves and some Jan and Dean 45's and Picture Sleeves (was missing 2 of them) which will be real nice for the 45's I have. I have a few more bids out there. I am pretty sure they are going to sock the hell out of me for "time spent packing, shipping materials and cost of shipping." But what the hell..

I mentioned last week I have been on a powerpop kick...While the Ramones were punk, they also were powerpop. And yes, I probably paid a buck for this

The Minders- Listen the Bugle Calls

 A little Tuesday Prework upload. I was in slo mo this morning and did not get on the treadmill- which means at some point today I will need to on it...damn! 

This 45 came from the CARA club release from 2020. I joined the club pretty much for just a few of the releases and have been pleasantly surprised by the 45s. I had never heard of the Minders and I definitely need to hear more from them after this...reminded me of the Apples In Stereo

Gary Lewis And The Playboys - Hayride

How about a little sunshine music after all the heavy ones last week. I picked this one up last summer. What is funny is that I bought this big lot of 2000 45's from a connection and there must have been 4 or 5 copies of the stock copy in the lot. Have had the promo for a while
