My new years wish for you


Happy new year!
Here's the flip side of that awful Christmas message one i posted a week ago. Sorry about all the noise, 25 cent piece of crap... I actually think i paid way too much for it...

Have fun.

Globetrottin


Well, it's no Sweet Georgia Brown, but it's still a pretty righteous jam.

I don't know a whole lot about the Tornadoes, they must have released a whole LP of this stuff back in the day... Even if they didn't, my ears tell me that this one was recorded at the same time as their smash runaway hit "Telstar." You got Joe Meek, who's credited as songwriter, behind the board pressing buttons and twiddling the knobs while the tape was rolling on this number too.

Dig it.

did you ever have to make up your mind


"Hit" records was a label in the sixties who specialized in releasing half-assed covers of popular songs of the day, aimed at the music buyer on a budget (or the young music lover's thrifty and/or square parents, who didn't know any better.) These records went for like 30 cents, where as an actual Lovin' Spoonful single probably would have ran upwards of a whole dollar at the time. So it is what it is. Nowadays, you and me know it as what you'd call 'a cheap knockoff.' This one's actually a not a half bad version though. Considering the source material.

I recently found 7 or 8 more of these, most songs i know the original versions of, and two that stumped even me... Now i'm obsessed with everything on this label.

Enjoy!

Mope-itty Mope Stomp


As i said in my last post i just picked up a shitload of cheapo 45s and transferred over 100 sides this weekend, so i'm back in business.
I used to run my real turntable/receiver directly into my computer using Final Vinyl, and the recordings sounded pretty decent. Now i'm using my old portable Ion usb job, and the results are a little, well, not so much. But these transfers will have to do...
I'll spare you my sob story, but it's all i've got to work with at the moment, and will be for the forseeable future... So if it's super high fidelity you are looking for, you're in the wrong place. If it's lousy recordings of obscure, unusual, and/or largely forgotten 45s personally rescued from the trash by yours truly, then stay tuned, because i got a heap of new sounds coming your way.

Let's get it going with the old Mope-itty Mope Stomp!

Jesus come help me


My Christmas gift to myself this year was the thrill of wasting a few hours flipping through crate after crate of dusty old 45s at my new favorite record shop. (See what i did there) I picked up over a hundred scratchy old 25-centers for my (and your) listening enjoyment. I don't really have the bread to spare for such frivolous purchases right now, but what the hell- It's Christmas fer crissakes! Nobody else was gonna buy them for me...

Hot off the turntable- I just spun this one and thought it would also make a good holiday post...

Jesus, come help me.

Dear Mr Jesus


Here's one for the man. The myth. The legend...
The reason for the season.
In my 25+ years of collecting, this has got to be the most horrible record i've ever heard. Ever.

Hope yours is a good one.

Dear Mr Jesus


...and- The flip side: Love Sharon

I like christmas


That's not a statement, it's just the title of the stupid record. I fucking hate Christmas. Especially this year.
Christ, the fact that shit like this even exists is half the reason why... Bet you can't even make it through the whole three minutes it's so bad.

Bah humbug!



Now this, this is more like it.

Whole lotta love




What can i say, these Dread Zeppelin records still crack me up after all these years. "Featuring the Memphis Hornies, and the Michael Jordanaires." Come on people now. This stuff is comedic genius.
Good times. Good. Times.
When you're done here, check out the FLIP SIDE too, it's a real hoot.

Whole lotta love

Stronger than dirt




The Mummies were one of, if not thee, greatest punk rock bands in the history of recorded sound. Way back when, this was the very first record of theirs i ever heard.

Sorry about the shitty low-res scans. This is just how i did them when i first started converting records, and never re scanned it (and never will.) Don't like it? Too bad. You get what you pay for.

Stronger Than Dirt.
Enjoy!
