Paris - A Change Is Gonna Come

Here is a pick up from a few months ago. Of course it is not as killer as Sam Cooke's version but I don't think I have heard a bad version of this song.

The Atlantics - Bombora

Yesterday was a haze as I had some kind of stomach/24 hour bug and it smashed me. I spent my day today recovering, lying on the couch watching bad TV.  I picked up this 45 with 2 other Atlantic's 45s. This is my 2nd Atlantic's post.

Dave Clark Five - Forget

I scanned a bunch of 45's in the computer. I have an excel spreadsheet with my collection in it but sometimes I am amazed at what I have forgotten I have.

Richard Harris - The Yard Went On Forever

I was never a fan of Richard Harris (the singer) or Jimmy Webb's music. That being said, I found this 45 oddly appealing.

13th Power I See A Change Is Gonna Come

Today was my one Saturday a month to work so that means I can play next Saturday....wish I could play all week as well but Daddy has to pay the bills and also needs $$ to buy minty 45's and picture sleeves like this post

Del Shannon - Ginny In The Mirror

Well the snow/ice storm has socked us but real good. I've enjoyed the time off from work

The Dragons - Elephant Stomp

It's Instrumental Monday night. This group featured "Captain" Darryl Dragon (the Captain and Tennille). Thought I would upload this for the poor captain as he is suffering from a neurological condition and Tennille recently filed for divorce after 39 years of marriage.

Lothar & The Hand People - Have Mercy

One of the 45's I bought yesterday had a nasty crack (Zombies)...I am going to have to do a much better job...Luckily it was cheepo but still.
I have always loved promo 45's and have always had questions on why Capitol did not have many Beatle or Beach Boys promos and the ones they did were from 67 and beyond.

The Ceeds - You Won't Do That

It was a cold day at the flea market but I found a few 45's, then went to one of my new favorite places and bought another 20 or so 45's including some nice white label promo soul 45's.
I picked this one up in Colorado in August from someone I met long ago. I went to his house and bought a ton of 45's and this was included. We both had no clue about the origins of this and I found out later that this is a Colorado band from I believe Colorado Springs or Manitou Springs. A very nice find it was.

Elmore James - Make My Dreams Come True

Another recent pickup.. I probably could have cleaned it up a little better. The vinyl actually looks pretty clean, afraid I may need a new needle. .I'm going to hopefully hit the place I found this at tomorrow and maybe I'll find some more goodies

Roky Erickson - The Interpreter

Yep...lazy last night. Watched a few documentaries on Netflix -Teen a go go-  60's Ft Worth Garage scene - highly recommended, & A documentary on the Greenwhich Village Folk scene). Tonight I have a documentary on Roky Erickson playing.  Hmmm....why not post one of his solo 45's from 1977...yeah, a little newer than I usually post but I do like this song

Marke 5 - Pay

The Super Bowl is tomorrow so I went shopping today for the ingredients for my fabulous Green Chili- it's my tradition for the past 20 years. This time tomorrow I will be enjoying smothered burritos.
Tonight's post is another fantastic JCP release but take a lesson from my mistake...This 45 is a perfect example of why it is important to play & inspect any internet 45 purchase. I bought this 6 months ago and stored it away not playing it until recently, when I discovered much to my dismay that there was a crack in the vinyl. At least it still played
