Bobby Loveless - Nite Owl

I have another version of this from another group that is killer as well. But who can beat the original

Buckinghams - Hey Baby

I had a long 2 days of sitting in a work shop in Raleigh but it was worth it. There is nothing like getting home, kicking off the shoes and reclining back and relaxing.
Tonight's post is one of those "I normally don't post these casual hit records" posts. I picked this up a few months ago at a thrift shop [cheap and in fantastic shape], and I heard it on the radio a few days ago and quite frankly forgot what a fantastic song this was. I guess that is the good thing about being my own "blog boss"....I can indulge in music that strikes my fance.

The T-Bones - The Midnight Hour

Quite uneventful weekend with zero effort or motivation to look for vinyl. I work next weekend so it should be a few weeks before I get back on the vinyl hunt. I did go through some boxes I had yesterday and found a few items I had set aside to listen to. Turned out I had a couple lo fi garage 45's with at least 1 if not both from North Carolina...sweet. Also a novelty Halloween 45. I love it when even when not on the hunt a gem or two is found.
I posted the other side of the Acetate in the past. Here is the other side of this unreleased [as far as I can tell] song

Rex Garvin and the Mighty Cravers - Emulsified

Happy for the weekend. First version of this I ever heard was from Yo La Tengo on Fakebook [included a youtube clip]. Finally snagged me an original copy and a promo to boot

Paul Revere & The Raider - Have Love Will Travel

I read that Paul Revere of the Raiders died yesterday. I almost posted this last night.
I don't believe they are not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Shame yet. Many of the artists whose music is heard on oldies station's daily are not in. Would someone rectify that and give these artists their due recognition!

Love - Laughing Stock

I went to an auction a few blocks from my house today. They had a ton of records but I came away empty handed. The LP's were in terrible shape and the they had 10 lots of 45's (probably a total of 1500 to 2000) 45's. No one bid and they ended up offering the lots of 45's for $10 a lot. I ended up passing...too much newer country and the older 45's were not in the greatest of condition. It would have ended up costing me $150 if I wanted them and they had a phone in bidder for $10 a lot. I just could not justify it.
A nice LOVE B Side from a nice recent pickup
