Soul Stirrers - Until Jesus Calls Me Home

What a busy day. Diggin through the radio station find today and found a few cool 45's like tonight's post. Sam Cooke had the perfect voice for spiritual songs. Look, another "B" side

Dee Dee Warwick - Yours Until Tomorrow

Friday night soul. I have so much cool 45's I have picked up the last few months but have had limited chance to scan and record them. That is not a bad thing as I have plenty of stuff scanned and recorded and I will get to the new stuff. This is one of those 45's I picked up earlier in the year. A killer Goffen and King song, I have always loved any version of this song. I have a version by Baby Ray that kills...I can't believe I have not uploaded that on...hmmm, another on the list of things to do. So it seems Open Drive has made some changes and I can't make an audio player. So I played around with watching a youtube video on embedding an audio player. Seems to work just fine.

Chuck Berry - Come On

My favorite Chuck Berry song. I have looked for this for quite a while and found it in Maryland thanks to my new record collector friend. I love it when that elusive item comes your way..

Dixie Humming Birds - I'll Keep On Living After I Die

Yes, I have been off the blog for a bit. But I have had a busy few weeks. First, I went at the start of the month to see my friend in Maryland for a few days. Had a great time and in the process made a new record collector friend. I managed to score some nice 45's from him, of which tonight's post is one of them [although the 45 is somewhat rough condition]. I have some fantastic Peacock 45's but had never seen any on red vinyl and I picked up 2. Perfect gospel.

As I was driving home from Maryland I was thinking how I have way too many records and need to start selling them to free up space but then what do I do, I go and buy  about 12,000 45s earlier this week. I won't go into the whole story here but I they were from an unpicked find- yes unpicked. There are bit more Country 45's than I would have liked [probably at least half of the find] but the rest were 60's [with some 70's] rock and soul and most are promos. Found some items I have looked for awhile for, although I have not had the opportunity to go through all the boxes and boxes and boxes. I figure to set up a website at some point to start trying to sell stuff I don't want. Stay tuned.
