Get While the Gettin's Good.
Spent some quality time w/ a bunch of assholes :) this weekend. After copious amounts of top-shelf tequila and salted peanuts, we managed to drag our sorry asses out to a record show near Lancaster P.A for some self-mortification. Bad haircuts, elitism and funny pants aside, soul and Doo-Wop, as usual, are the main events, but for an equal opportunity offender like myself, there are bargains to be had.
Link Wray - Jack the Ripper, Rumble & Mr. Guitar (LP Swan 510)
Billy "The Kid" Emerson - Little Fine Healthy Thing / Something for Nothing (Sun 233)
Billy Riley - Flyin' Saucer Rock & Roll / I Want You Baby (Sun 260)
Rudy Grazell - Judy / I Think of You (Sun 290)
Ray Smith - Rockin' Bandit / Sail Away (Sun 319)
Harold Andrews & the Exciters - Foggy / Party Time (MRM 402)
Originals - Sleepless Hours / Anna (Jackpot 48012)
Meters - Sissy Strut / Here Comes the Meter Man (Josie 1005)
Swags - Rockin' Matilda / Blowing the Blues (Del-Fi 4143)
Delegates - Pigmy Part 1 / Pepper (no Pigmy Part 2 ???) (Aura 88120)
Noc-A-Bouts - Jungle Safari / Session (United Artists 126)
King Curtis & the Nobles - Soul Twist / Twisting Time (Enjoy 1000)
Being more than happy w/ my meager haul, there were indeed some dusky jewels floating around, including a heavy-hitter specializing in pre-war Vocalian blues. Some bird even had two (?!?!) copies of Devil's coveted Majic Ship LP ($1500 apiece my ass).
Oh well, sometimes its fun just to look.
