The Sants - Leaving You Baby

Well I have had a busy week as I thought but I feel really good about it. Hate that I'm too tired to upload nightly. Hate that I won't be able to scrounge for records for the next 3 months.

The Outcasts - Set Me Free

Well we lost power for 27 hours but overall the storm was not too bad for us with just some downed limbs and leaves. I start my hectic work/field placement schedule tomorrow so I am hoping to do at least 2-3 postings during the week.

The Live Wires - The Mask

Hopefully I will have power and cable tomorrow night so I can post. I am not expecting the winds to be as bad for us as it looks like the hurricane may make landfall about 100 miles from us.

American Breed- Don't Forget About Me

Well looks like we are going to have us a Hurricane. If the track continues as they predict then I will "enjoy" tropical force winds on Saturday as we are east of the I-90 corridor. I've experienced wind gusts up to 80 mile an hour before and it is no picnic. But it is much worse at night!.
Missed last night as my wife was in a car accident (she is just fine) but she totaled my new Toyota. Cars can be replaced but people can't. The car was a mangled mess and I have only one word for her surviving the wreck and walking out of the hospital with cuts and bruises...GOD!

Cyntriks - Missy

Hit the beach today. Waves were a bit rough...I imagine due to the Hurricane that is possibly coming our way, which I sure hope does not. It has been awhile since one has hit us and I can tell you it is not a fun experience in the middle of the night.
Here is a NC garage 45.

The Rising Sons - Candy Man & The Devil's Got My Woman

Here is a double sided 45 I have searched for years for. Features Taj Mahal, Ry Cooder and Jesse Kincaid. And I found a copy with the rare insert....sweet

Carl Perkins - Matchbox

Finished up my reading for class tomorrow and was even able to see the final Harry Potter movie. To celebrate, here is a classic

Mary Wells - I'm Learning & He's A Lover

Well the dog is fine. One hour after bouncing off the front of a mini van he wanted to play tug of war. I'm having a heart attack and he wants to play. I missed last night so I thought I would do a double sided upload of a 45/PS I picked up recently.

The Fourmost - If You Cry

Another busy day. I have a few days of vacation coming up but won't be going anywhere. I guess I could cry about

Ok, its 9pm and I need the prayers of my blogger friends. My black lab (see picture) pushed the front screen door open while my wife was on the porch about 30 minutes ago and ran full blast (I think he saw a cat across the street) and was hit by a car...he bounced off and kept running. He seems ok with some minor cuts but is walking . We can't get up with the vet so do me a favor and pray for my dog Bently.

Neon Philharmonic - Morning Girl

Catchy little pop song. I was suprised how much I really dig this 45.

Independence Hall - Party Line

What a long day. Sundays should be about relaxing not being as busy as I was. Just can't get enough of the is a cover version

Kinks - The Village Green Preservation Society

My favorite Kinks song. I searched far and wide for this one and finally found me a copy of this very elusive 45.God save the Kinks.

Kinks - Days

Countdown continues with my 2nd favorite Kinks 45.

Kinks - Sunny Afternoon

Great song with probably one of the greatest lyrics in all of rock music...
My girlfriend's gone off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty
Now I'm sitting here
Sipping at my ice cold beer
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

Kinks - Waterloo Sunset

Here is another brilliant 45 that was huge in the UK but again went nowhere here. This was released on Reprise twice...once in the 60's and once as a b side in the early 70s.

Kinks - Autumn Almanac

Another brilliant song that was overlooked here in the states.

Kinks - Picture Book

I so love the Kinks I think I will share some of my all time faves. Some of these 45s are so difficult to find and Saturday's upload will be my all time favorite. Of course I will stick solely with the Reprise 45s for this week.
I was so amazed when HP used this song a few years ago in their commercial but thought it was perfect. I found a clip of them singing this. Check out youtube for another clip that starts off with Last of the Stream Powered Trains...brilliant!

Teddy Boys - Where Have All The Good Times Gone

We had planned on seeing the final Harry Potter movie today but it did not happen...spent the day going through my record boxes, taping songs and scanning.  Kinks cover

Honk - Don't Take Anything

Here is an obscure country rock 45 from 1970. Picked it up about 6 months ago at a record show.

Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit

Probably the most famous song from Billie Holiday. I love her voice...I remember dancing with friends in a Denver snowstorm on Friday night with Billie Holiday blaring from the car stereo...

Kak -I've Got Time

Nice little countryish 60's 45.
