Indy Show Finds

Hello, everyone. Today was a good day for me record-wise. I just got back from the Indy record show this afternoon and managed to get a nice haul with only $60 to spend. Thankfully, I mostly paid $1 for each of them, with a few exceptions, but everything I got was $5 or under. I don't often get days like this, as I end up spending in the $20-$50 range for a good portion of the 45s I get, more if I get into a bidding war on eBay. But not this time. I found a lot of good soul and jazz 45s, which I now share with you below:

Fontella Bass and Bobby McClure: You'll Miss Me (When I'm Gone) (Checker)
Tommie Young: Everybody's Got A Little Devil In Their Soul (Soul Power)
Billy Stewart: Secret Love (Chess)
Little Milton: I Know What I Want (Checker)
Chuck Berry: Nadine (Is It You) (Chess)
Les McCann: Burnin' Coal (Atlantic)
Les McCann and Eddie Harris: Cold Duck/Compared To What (Atlantic)
Dave "Baby" Cortez: Belly Rub Parts 1 and 2 (Roulette)
Dave "Baby" Cortez: Funky Robot Parts 1 and 2 (All Platinum)
King Curtis: Mess Around (Capitol)
King Curtis and the Kingpins: Cook-Out (Atco)
Sandy Nelson: Drummin' Up A Storm (Imperial)
Clifton Chenier: Frog Legs (Bell)
The Jazz Crusaders: Jackson! (Chisa)
Herbie Mann: Memphis Two-Step/Soul Man (Embryo)
Herbie Mann: Push Push Parts 1 and 2 (Embryo)
The Bar-Kays: Dance, Dance, Dance (Volt)
Groove Holmes: Flyjack/Night Glider (Groove Merchant)
Mongo Santamaria: WInd Jammer (Atlantic)
Rimshots: Save That Thing (A-1)
Hank Ballard and the Midnighters: Shaky Mae/I Love and Care For You (King)
Ace Cannon: Amen (Hi)
Willie Mitchell: Restless (Hi)
Willie Mitchell: Breaking Point (Hi)
Freddie Hubbard: Red Clay Parts 1 and 2 (CTI)
Afrique: Soul Makossa/Hot Mud (Mainstream)
Googie Rene: The Slide Parts 1 and 2 (Hi-Oldies)
Jimmy McCracklin: Let's Do It All/Just Like It Is (Imperial)
Bobby Marchan: Shake Your Tambourine (Cameo)
The People's Choice: I Likes To Do It/Big Ladies Man (Phil-L.A. Of Soul)

Well, that about does it. As usual, hope you enjoyed checkin' it out. Just wanted to share 'em with you. Comments and questions are always appreciated. In the meantime, I look forward to my next digging excursion.....whenever that is. (This is going to be a slightly difficult month for record digging because two DVD box sets ....Popeye (1933-1938) and Woody Woodpecker and Friends....are coming out and I MUST HAVE THEM BOTH! But that's perhaps a subject for another time.)

how is that Clifton Chenier: Frog Legs on Bell? i've been buying a lot on bell lately...

Todd Lucas said...

I love the Clifton Chenier disc.

Brian Marshall said...

Yes, the Clifton Chenier disc is indeed a good one. One side's uptempo, the other, "Black Gal," is more bluesy. On either side, the accordion really kicks in! I'm not a zydeco expert or anything, but I know good stuff when I hear it and this one's indeed a keeper! Too bad my copy's a little beat, but you know how it goes.

Any others you're curious about?

Dave said...

you can't go wrong with Mongo's Atlantic 45s. Windjammer is a good one.

Brian Marshall said...

"Wind Jammer" is definitely one of my faves this round and has been getting a lot of spins around here. I'm also really digging Herbie Mann's "Memphis Two-Step," Groove Holmes' "Night Glider," The Rimshots "Save That Thing" and the two Willie Mitchells. And "Push Push" is great, too, especially when the guitar work kicks in on Part 2.
