The whole towns batty about Cincinnati


I'm not a Cincinnati fan, so i don't know if they play this one at the ball park or what, but it's old. They are still called the 'Red Legs' on the label.

Here's a bit from their wikipedia page explaining the short lived name change:
Twice in the 1950s (the McCarthy era), the Reds, fearing that their traditional club nickname would associate them with the threat of Communism, officially changed the name of the team to the "Cincinnati Redlegs". From 1956 to 1960, the club's logo was altered to remove the term "REDS" from the inside of the "wishbone C" symbol. The "REDS" reappeared on the 1961 uniforms, but the point of the C was removed, leaving a smooth, non-wishbone curve. The traditional home-uniform logo was restored in 1967.

I found two copies of this record in a dirty milk crate at a yard sale in Kentucky last summer. One of them was cracked, this is the other one.

Go sports!

You can see clearly now


My girlfriend picked this up for me recently at an estate sale. Neither of us remembers John Coleman, as she was a matter days old in March of 1973 (Postmarked on the mailer) and i was still a bun in the oven with a few months left to cook...

I did a little googlin. It seems that John was a Chicago TV weatherman at the time. It's one of those flexi records, and in my sleeve has not one, not two, but three copies of it. Anyone out there a John Coleman fan? Send a personal message. We'll work something out. I don't need three copies of this...

Enjoy!

Smokin at 33


It must have been an accident the first time i heard Boston's Smokin 45 played at 33, but oh what a perfect accident it turned out to be. After that, listening to this record at the wrong speed became  another thing that my friends and i did. Ahh, simpler times they were. First- smoke a joint in the garage, Second- go upstairs and jam out to some Boston and laugh our asses off... 

We tried other records at the wrong speed. We tried everything we had at least once, but no other song lent itself to this treatment as well as Smokin. The punk stuff i listened to at the time was fast too, the Misfits for example. When slowed down the tempo was right but the guitars were so low that it was unlistenable... Smokin is a fast song in the key of A, 45 to 33 slows it down just enough to really bring out that 3/4 boogie and give it a serious groove. The guitars are right on the edge of being seriously heavy and ridiculous. And it's still not even six minutes long...

The 'Stoner Rock' genre as we know it today didn't quite exist when i was in high school. It was in it's infant stages anyway, so this is what my friends and i did when we got tired of listening to Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.

Enjoy!
