Last summer i found a bag of more than 80 of these at a church garage sale on the south side. I think i gave the guy seven bucks for all of them.
Any Sox fans out there need a copy? Shoot me a message...
Last year i had the good fortune of going to a meet & greet autograph session at the ball park. I got Ozzie Guillen to sign two copies for me (he was on the '85 team), and he held up the line to tell me all about his vintage juke box in his home in Venezuela. Not even making this up. He was excited when i gave him two copies of his own. He said "I can't wait to listen to this," and i could tell that he actually meant it. I also got Harold Baines and Greg walkers autographs (both on the '85 team as well), and gave them their own copies. None of them remembered it.
I've tried on a few occasions to find information on Wayne Mayfield and/or this record, but the internets come up short. I would like to say your welcome to all White Sox fans out there, as i am single-handedly responsible for giving this one back to all of cyberspace. This song went unheard for 25 years or so, and if i hadn't rescued these records, it would still be long forgotten... You are welcome. You are all very welcome.
Some White Sox fan page on Tumblr stole my label scan and MP3 after the first time i posted it last summer, and who knows where it was linked from there. We'll see where it ends up after this post.
