Uniques - Dog Tracks & Cortez

Yikes, I need to force myself to music blog or I won't. School is in full swing and I am running running studying running studying...etc. My record searching days will be few until next graduation next May. Found this in Myrtle Beach a few weeks back. This was not the Joe Stampley group.

Tina Britt - The Real Thing

I've been slack this week. Guess I wanted to relax a bit as school starts tomorrow. I have not had to go to a class room since the end of April so I need to get my mind motivated and back into it. But this is my final 2 semesters and the Master's diploma is the prize. I'm going to be super busy so I don't expect any time to look for records.

Dovells - Dragster On The Prowl

Car songs were the rage but no so much from east coast bands, especially in 1962.

Velvet Underground - White Light White Heat

On my Thursday trip I found this shop that had boxes of 45's under a table. This was the 2nd 45 I looked at in box #1 and my eyes just about popped out of my head.

Winston Jones - Looking For A Home

I had a little road trip planned before school starts in a week but my plans fell through. Disappointed but resilient, I chose to hit some places I had not gone to before since I had had a few days off from work. I ended up finding about a dozen 45's yesterday and it was a good haul. I found this 45 in a little shop that had a whole bunch of 60s soul 45s. It looked interesting so I took a chance. I found a reference on the web and this is apparently a pricey soul 45 from a Brooklyn label. The interesting thing is the label on this copy. The picture I found showed the label as Flames 101. My guess is this may be a test pressing or early advance as the etching matches the label F-101. The apparent typed writing is faint and backwards and I could not make out what it says. Any thoughts on this appreciated

Gospel Clefs - Out Of The Fiery Furnace & Behind Every Dark Cloud

When I first started this blog I thought I would do a gospel sunday night and this 45 was planned on being one of the first. However, I had misplaced it. Imagine my joy today as I was organizing and going through a few boxes of stuff I had not looked through in awhile and there it was.
