Chicken crazy!


I've said it before, and i'll say it again. A record with the word 'Chicken' in the title is pretty much guaranteed to be a great song. This one right here is proof.

Say- Miss Lady- What's yo fav'rite meat?!
Enjoy!

Ain't gonna eat out my heart anymore


I don't know who's responsible for these re-issue bootlegs of classic Nuggets/Pebbles tunes, but god damn, i glad someone's finally doing it. Original b-sides, reproductions of the original labels, the works. I've picked up a handful of them here and there, and while they are a bit on the pricey side, they're worth the money considering what an authentic version of one of these records would cost.

Here's The Chob, and their amateurish yet charmingly sincere take on the Young Rascals classic.
Enjoy!

Have a good time

In my travels (and on my budget,) i almost exclusively shop for 45s in junk shops, flea markets, and bargain bins. It's not often that i run across sides as great as this one for the prices i'm willing to spend on music that sounds like this... But it does happen occasionally.

Here's one from a stack of blues 45s i picked up last spring that ran me three for a dollar. I actually haggled with the guy on the price. He was asking 50 cents each for his records, and i talked him down.

Enjoy!

Bite back


1980's hard rock really aint my bag... I like it when i hear it for the most part, but i don't necessarily seek out singles like this. I don't know anything about this band or even when or how i ended up with this 45. It's not a bad little slice of low-rent early 80s cock rock though.
I kinda dig it. Hopefully you will too.

Enjoy!

I Sold my heart to the junk man

Flea market - day two. Hoping to actually maybe make some money today...

This record has a minor skip, but considering the subject matter, i'd say it's actually in pretty good shape for what it is.

Enjoy!

Long Tall Texan

What celebration of country music (even one as half-assed as mine) would be complete without a song about ones allegiance to the great state of Texas?
Especially when it's represented with a rock and roll song...

Enjoy!

In the jailhouse now



So far in Country music week, i've featured records that tackle such topics such as drinking beer with ones buddies, driving a truck, and dealing with a no good woman the old fashioned way.
The usual stuff. What else is there, you ask? Well, there's always prison. Short stays, or long stays, prison is always a real drag.

Here's a song about it.
Enjoy!

Red necks white socks and blue ribbon beer

November 4th was the start of country music week here in America. Unfortunately, it was a bit overshadowed this year by that whole presidential election deal. Here at Junk Shop Juke Box, we have decided to do our part by celebrating a bit late this year and playing country music records for just as long as we damn well please... 
To kick things off, how about a little Red White and Blue- Necks, socks, and beer that is...
Enjoy!

Nixon's the only one



As you and i both know, election day will be upon us here in the good ole United States of America in just a few short days. This is a big one folks. The one where we elect our new commander in chief.

Here at Junk Shop Juke Box, we have carefully selected several records to lead up to this most historic occasion, and will be posting them all week leading up to the big day. The first Tuesday after the first Monday of November that is. In 2012's case, the 6th.

Without further ado, lets jjust get right down to the politics at hand... We'll kick it off with a catchy little campaign ditty that even though it's nearly a four minute song, only has two actual lines. Not to tell us anything about the man or what he plans to do for the people, just to simply tell us that he's the one... Which- i suppose he was.

Warning- This melody will get stuck in your head. Don't blame me if you feel a strong urge to do a write-in for Nixon when it comes time for you to go to your local polling place... You were warned.

Enjoy!
