Jimi Hendrix Experience - 51st Anniversary

The "b" side to Jimi's 1st 45. I have a copy of the rare Picture Sleeve that came with this but it is beyond trashed. Someone cut a hole in the middle of both sides and completely cut the seams so it is in 2 pieces- Why oh why oh why would someone do this???. Not even worth scanning.

The Ventures - Theme From A Summer Place

A pretty song done Ventures style. Follow up to Hawaii Five O- dented the bottom of the charts at #83. It was their last top 100 release. My quest for stock and promo copies of Ventures 45's continues

The Tokens - Tonight I Fell In Love

Here is one of the 45's I bought at the auction at the start of the month. I have looked for it for ages. It's nothing valuable but it proved to be a somewhat difficult 45 for me to find.

The Move- The Disturbance

I managed to run around a little today and went to a few antique stores I had wanted to hit for some time but struck out. I had seen them while at work on the way to other towns so I had them mentally tucked away. What a waste. I went to one and found a bunch of 45's and albums, took them up and was told the prices were inside the jacket. The first one I checked had a hundred dollar price tag on it..."what? Are you kidding me?" The albums were not in that great shape and were worth a buck a piece at best and the cheapest one was $25. The 45's...try $20 bucks a piece. I put them back and wished them luck. Hell, I went to an auction on February 2nd and bought about 180 45's for $110 dollars and that included a copy of the Beatles Please Please Me with the rare VJ Picture Sleeve in VG+ to NM condition [and that is a pricey item]. Here is a recent's the b side of Night of Fear, which I believe is their first 45.

Nino Tempo April Stevens - Wings Of Love

How do we make sense of murder? Three individuals were brutally murdered in Chapel Hill and there are no answers that will soothe or make things better. I had worked with the father of the two women many many years ago. You could not ask for a nicer more caring man. No family on this earth should suffer such tragedy, such sadness. I pray that there is some comfort for them in their time of grief.
