Record Show Recap and More

This past Sunday was the date of the latest record show in St. Louis. I was able to go and dig up a few treasures. I thought that I'd list them for you but, first, a couple of other items.

Vincent the Soul Chef of the tremendous Fufu Stew blog is going to join us later in the week for our very first guest mix. Vincent has already forwarded the tracklist to me and it looks fantastic. I hope to have it up and going before the weekend, so be sure to check back.

Next, I wanted to share a new website with you, namely RnB45.com. They have features, including sound files, plus a full-fledged message board. The focus is r&b from the early 1950's to the mid 1960's but discussion of early rock and roll, doo-wop, garage rock, soul and other music of the time is also welcome. Please pay them a visit and sign up, if you're so inclined.

Yeah, lots of dollar and two dollar cheapies in there. As you can see, it was a particlarly good show for 45's.

Devil Dick said...

man i need to get in your dollar bins...

I can not complain at all though, i just scored about 400 45's for 10 bucks, not all that great but a few keepers for sure. I'm just too lazy to post them.
