Miracle of Easter


The real miracle here is the fact that i was able to sit through the nearly three minutes of this record without puking on my turntable. Christ, what a way to start your day. Talk about a tummy ache...

Happy zombie Jesus day!
Enjoy!

Delicious


Ladies and gentlemen, here now for your listening enjoyment is how the other half lives.

Jim Backus and friend enjoying a little bubbly and good times. This record never fails to crack me up... They must have actually been good and drunk when they recorded this. Their laughter is too real.

Enjoy!

Talkin Trash


One of my favorite styles of music from the 50s and 60s, and i don't even know what it's called- or if it even really has a proper label. It's the one with a generic musical backing track and a dude talking to (or at) a woman who may or may not be talking back, or in this case- laughing uncontrollably.

In this one, the fellow is getting nowhere with the lady. He's got a new car,  brought her chocolates, got his only suit cleaned,  and she just laughs... Non stop. Laughing at the poor sap. Finally he tells her to shut up, and the song is over. It's a beautiful thing.

Enjoy!

Next time we'll hear how the other half lives. Some sloppy piano music behind a drunken giggle fest at a snooty restaurant. One of my all time favorites. Stay tuned.

Dante's Inferno


This has been a favorite of mine for many a year. I finally found my very own copy this past weekend at the great big record show out in the suburbs...

This here is some of the best 50 cents i've spent in a long while.
Enjoy!

I wish i had a body like Robert Baker


I consulted the supposedly all knowing interwebs trying to figure out who Robert Baker is/was, and came up with nothing on this one. Squat. Zero. Zippo. Nada. Not a gal-dang bit of information to be had. I guess it's not really much of a loss, because it's a pretty mediocre song, but still... I suppose it might be worthy of a chuckle or two if i knew who Robert Baker was, but since i don't, the humor is lost on me...
Anyone out there have any information?
Anyone?

I do like the crappy 'artwork' on the label though.

Enjoy!

Joe's Joint


We're not talking about that kind of joint here... Or that kind either.
Some more information provided by a JSJB fan.
The artist on this was a guy named Cliff Ferré, who recorded a number of these dirty ditties. In fact there was an LP released, now fairly hard to find: Check out the cover HERE.


Enjoy!

(I'm in with) the out crowd




Attention Chicago internet browsers!

Sunday, March 24th I will be doing an all vinyl DJ night at Club Foot, 1824 W. Augusta, in Chicago, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the birth of my old lady, Laura. Doors open at 8:00 PM, I'll make with the tunes around 9:00. 

I'll be spinning the dirtiest, scratchiest, stupidest, thrift-storiest, 45s that i've managed get my greasy hands on. Sounds will include, but not be limited to: Old Soul songs about chicken, 50s Rock and roll songs about cars, Honky-tonk songs about drankin beer, and 60s Garage rock songs about no good women. You know, the usual stuff you hear around here. and plenty of other cool sounds from decades past to stuff in your ear holes.







Warn your friends!
Tell your enemies!

If that aint enough for you, they sell booze at the joint too (The drunker you are, the better my inept bumbling at the turntables will sound) and there may or may not be cake...


I'm in with the out crowd.
Enjoy!

We're pretty quick



Holy crap! I love the fact that someone has been bootlegging these old garage rock Nuggets classics. I only discovered them a little less than a year ago, but I assume they've been around a while. They were probably released in limited quantities, so i've decided i'm headed to the record shop where i bought this one and grabbing whatever else i see. I got a DJ gig lined up in a few weeks, and i gotta stock up on good tunes. (I'll keep the local crowd posted as to when and where that's gonna be.)
Enjoy!

You'll never tame me


It's been a busy month here at Junk Shop Juke Box headquarters, working full time again, so i never got around to recording/scanning all the Hit Records sides i have for "Hit Records Month." If you missed it, I mentioned that a while back, HERE.) I'm going to make a serious effort to try to do it for April though...
But who knows what will actually happen- You'll never tame me!
