James Brown - Santa Claus Go Straight to The Ghetto

Well this was a pathetic waste of a day on the prowl for records. I went to a nearby city and community and found 1 45 for .50 in one shop and 10 for a buck in another. Mostly what I found was extremely high priced crap, in some cases 45's that looked like they had been soaked in a water bath and then the place wanted 1.50 for them...or another place with beat up lp's for 29.99. Then the kicker was when I got home I dropped the sack with the 45's and chipped 2 of them and cracked one...at least it was only 30 cents worth of damage and they were worth nothing.
If nothing else, what is Christmas without a little James Brown.

Johnny Horton - They Shined Up Rudolph's Nose

This week has gone by much too quickly. I am glad I still on vacation next week. I have plenty I need to take care of around home that I have not yet done. And of course I have a plan to run around tomorrow looking for records. I have a little day trip planned for a town and surrounding area that I have never really spent time scrounging about.
My parents had a copy of Johnny Horton's greatest hits and when I was growing up I used to play it all the time. Of course I have my own copy but come to think of it I have not listened to it in ages. Apparently there is a pricey rare picture sleeve for this 45

Jessie Mae Hemphill - Merry Christmas Pretty Baby

How about a little Christmas blues. I picked this one up at my favorite record stop this past summer. And it's autographed to boot!
