Hello and Some Recent Finds

I'm finally back. I haven't been around around recently for various reasons. Mainly, I had a bad sinus cold a few weeks ago, that turned into an ear infection and, finally, a shattered eardrum. I'm doing great now and my hearing is almost back to normal but I felt pretty lousy there for awhile. Amazing how weak something like that can leave you.

Because of my infirmary, I had to miss the St. Louis record show earlier this month. However, I've managed to get out in the wild and do some digging. So, in lieu of a list of record show finds, I thought that I'd share some of the other records I've picked up over the past month or so. There's a little bit of everything here.

Any chance of getting these as mp3's? Especially the Jackie Wilson and Linda Hopkins one, been after that since it was released! Cheers
