Emitt Rhodes - With My Face On The Floor

I never understood why Emitt Rhodes was never a superstar. What a brilliant 45 that received no attention. Emitt was definitely a record label casualty. Matter of fact, the record store where I first bought a mint UK copy of his debut for a buck was also a casualty. Maybe it's a conspiracy?

Chosen Few - Baby Don't Do It

Another nice North Carolina find. Divishare seems to be working again and I think I will bounce around using different sites.

Lou Donaldson - Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky

What a stressful week this has been. I came home with a headache that was slowly going away after 3 Excedrin an hour before I came home. I was greeted with Burritos and Chile Relanos for dinner. I still have the headache but dinner was grand!
Picked this one earlier this year

Smokey Robinson and the Miracles- If You Can Want

Had a busy week that took me away from the blog. My wife's car broke down and of course it was pouring rain as I was trying to get it going. Turns out Saturns were notorious for having ignition cylinder problems. Yesterday I retiled the bathroom floor and 12 hours later I finished and trust me when I say my body and fingers are feeling it today. Thought I had better upload now while I feel up to it.
Here is a Smokey Robinson and The Miracles 45 released after I Second That Emotion. I had never heard this song before I found the 45. It was a hit reaching #11 and just goes to show that unless it was a smash hit radio all but has forgotten gems like this.

Lightnin' Slim - I'm Tired Waitin Baby

Well I found another site for media sharing that I am going to give a try. This 45 is nothing pretty to look at but it plays better than it looks

Divishare issues

I have had posts ready the past 3 days but due to divishare issues of freezing when I upload a song I am a bit flustered so bear with me. I am not sure if there are any other "free" sites out there but due to my budget that is what it must be. If anyone knows of any other sites that offer the ability to upload a and store an mp3, with the ability to embed a player in a blog I would appreciate the info.

On a more positive note, I had a pretty good Friday and Saturday of finding a bunch of lp's and 45s. Tons of weird unknown 1970's promos. Not sure if anything will eventually make this blog but it was fun finding stuff cheap. Also found a bunch of Hank Williams lp's and Ventures lp's that I did not have.
