Quadrangle - She's Too Familiar Now

I spent a cold morning running around and only found 10 45's. During that time I listened to the last Saturday morning Bill Kelly Program on the Underground Garage as they are moving his time slot. Big drag to that one as his program is the best.
This 45 was on my want list for ages. This copy has found a good home.

Robb and Dean Douglas - I Can Make It With You

Been a busy time and I have had no time for the blog. Plus the other site I was using identified I had already exceeded my free use. So, I'm experimenting with other options and hope to learn to embed the mp3's into the post. We shall see.

I went to record store day early last Saturday and was about the 50th person in line. The store opened about 8am and I arrived just before 6am. It was a beautiful morning and I sat on the sidewalk enjoying the weather and drinking some coffee. It ended up being a very long day due to other issues [long damn story]. But I bought most of the stuff I wanted so overall I can't complain.

I always liked the Poco Seco Singers version of this 45 and found this about a month ago

Jackie Wilson and Count Basie - Chain Gang

I hit the bi-annual record show in Carrboro NC today and I have to say it was a pretty pathetic showing. I walked out with nothing. There were few people with 45's, several of the individuals had overpriced scratched slabs of wax and one seller said, "the rare stuff is the box here below". I did not look, he had crazy high prices on the generic crap....another seller had boxes of nothing of interest unpriced. Albums were ridiculously priced. I had better luck at the flea market but even there I picked up a dozen 45's, a Del Shannon LP and the Beach Boys Stack o Wax UK import LP.

The Stone Circus - Mr. Grey

I had to work today so no searching for records. However, a nice box of 45's arrived in the mail. There is a guy that has record auctions 4 or 5 times per year and I don't remember how I found out about him but I have probably been bidding for 10+ years. He always has a nice selection of stuff all over the map and minimum bid is a buck. I won a bunch in his last auction and they came in the mail today. Tonight's posting was in the box. I bid more than a buck but not much.  Interesting that the label has 3 minutes 5 seconds but it actually plays just over 2 minutes...was the album version longer?
