The Creature


Some of these are genuinely funny. Others, well, not so much. There's only so far you can go with the same schtick...

Enjoy!

You are my girl


Found this one recently for five bucks. Five Bucks! I didn't think i'd ever own an actual physical copy, but here it is in all of it's sizzlin bacon glory... One of my all time favorite monster/novelty songs. Hope you dig it as much as i do.
Enjoy!

2000 LB. Werewolf



I shouldn't need to tell any Junk Shop Juke Box visitors how great the Norton records label is, but just in case there is a rock and roll fan out there in internetland who just woke up from a 30 year coma- Norton Records is the coolest! Check out their Website and order everything you can afford.

It's been a full year since the storm, the flood, and the clean-up effort- and they are still offering the "Hurricane Sandy Survivor Pack." For 20 bucks you get a randomly selected pack of ten 45s from their massive catalog, which were rescued from the disaster. They've been cleaned and stripped of their picture sleeves, all you need is the music anyway...

I got a ton of cool stuff: Esquerita, The Sonics, Roy Orbison, and Arthur Lee 45s to name a few... If you like records, and have 20 bucks to spare, order this right away. You WILL NOT be disappointed when that package arrives in your mailbox, i guarantee you that. (No- I'm not a shill for Norton or anything, i just really dig who they are and what they do.)

Just in time for Halloween week, today's selection is one of the records i got from my Norton HSSP purchase. I don't know anything about The Neandrethals, and probably never would have heard this 1:36 of garage rock awesomeness if i hadn't taken a chance...

Enjoy!

Draculena


Of all the Halloween/monster song collections i own, i had never heard this tune till i found the record last summer. Produced by Mr Hand Jive himself, and on the 60's orange/yellow swirl label, I was sure it was going to be a winner... And i was right.

Enjoy!

We already heard this one when i found it, like in March or something. I'm posting it again because it's a great tune for the season. One of my favorites.

Enjoy!

I'm the wolfman



I only have a handful of monster/scary songs that i haven't already posted in the past. Enough to get me from now until Halloween proper anyway. So here goes.

I'm the wolfman baby!

Divine!




Today is (or would have been) Divine's birthday, so here are a few of his/her songs to celebrate that fact. 1980s electro-pop aint really my bag, but i  can make an exception in this case since it's Divine. I don't necessarily enjoy this kind of stuff, but since i'm a fan of the performer, it somehow makes it enjoyable to me... I am glad i own these records, even though i never actually listen to them...

Check out THIS ONE from the JSJB archives if you want to hear Divine kick out some serious rock and roll jams.

Happy birthday Divine!

I'm so beautiful


walk like a man


show me around



HERE are scans of the sleeves, labels, and MP3s of these three. I omitted the b-side of walk like a man because it's just an instrumental throw-away track.

Great big friendly town Chicago



We'll conclude Chicago week with a tune by my favorite singing grandma, Dora Hall. "Great big friendly town Chicago" is one of about a zillion 45s she made in the 60s and 70s that nobody ever heard... Here's a LINK to check out if you want to read more about Dora and her "singing career." (I'd recommend it. It's a quick, funny, and informative read.)

Enjoy!

Chicago cares about the Bears


This seems like the kind of thing that would have been released to cash in on Bears mania in 1986, what with their trip to the super bowl that year and all (or was that 1985?) Who knows, I don't watch football. Never have, and never will. I collect 45 rpm records by and about the city in which i live. Just so happens that some of the records i find are about sports teams that i know nothing about...

Take it or leave it.

Inner circles of Chicago


Hey- I simply stated that the songs this week would be about the city, or at have the word 'Chicago' in the titles, or something. Actually, i never really stated what "Chicago week" was going to be exactly. I kinda just threw it out there on a whim... Either way, I never said the records were all going to be exciting and fun (or even good.)
They just are what they are.

Enjoy!

Chicago, my home town


Chicago is a vocal and outspoken town, and from what i've come to understand, the folks here always have been. I think it might be time for another batch of records celebrating that fact.

For the next week (or so) it's nothing but Chicago songs here at ye olde Junk shoppe juke box.

Let's get it going with this gem.
Chicago Chicago, That's my home town!

Enjoy!

Banana pad riot





Here's a little punk rock for your ear holes...

I know- the labels look like two different records, color wise. It's banana colored vinyl either way. That's just what my scanner does sometimes. I don't know why. Maybe because its a cheap piece of crap... Anyway- Dig the sounds.

Of the four tunes, i'm particularly fond of the YFF's "Doin the banana split." It's a pretty righteous tribute to the songs celebrating the many short lived dance crazes of the 1960s.

Enjoy!
