A Recent Bunch of Finds

Howdy y'all! This is the other half of this blog echoing Todd's wishes to all for a Happy Tuesday. While he was at the St. Louis record show, I was here in Indianapolis at the Indianapolis record show. As for myself, I live in the Southern part of Indy in an incorporated town called Southport. I'm not blessed with the abundance of places to find records Todd is, but I do have my moments. Here now are a few of those moments from the month or so gone by, including the small haul I made at the Indy record show. Goes something like this:

Jerry O: (Funky) Four Corners (Boo-Ga-Loo)
Syl Johnson: I'll Take Those Skinny Legs (Twinight)
Marva Whitney: You Got To Have A Job (If You Don't Work, You Can't Eat) (King)
Freddy King: Driving Sideways (Federal)
Lee Fields: She's A Love Maker (London)
Houston Outlaws: Sweet Thing (Westbound)
Maurice and the Radiants: I've Got To Dance To Keep My Baby (Chess)

Booker T and the MGS: Soul Clap '69 (Stax)
Bobby Rush: Chicken Heads (Galaxy)
The G-Cleffs: Ka-Ding-Dong (Pilgrim)
Earl Washington: Wolf Call (Checker)
Tasso-Cain and the Matadors: Viet Nam Beat (Cy)
King Curtis: Beatnick Hoedown (ABC-Paramount)

That about does it. I'm thinking about featuring a few of these on this blog in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, I do not have MP3 capacity yet and probably won't for a long time. I'll have to see how Todd does with his MP3 set-up....whatever that is. In the meantime, stay tuned for more vinyl madness from the two of us on It's Great Shakes.
