OK, I had an interesting day today...I did happen to stop at one of my local thrift stores, one I stopped at just a few days ago...I was in the vicinity of this musical instrument store that I'd bought vinyl from in the past and thought I'd see if they had anything new...The owner said he got rid of the vinyl section, because he didn't have anything new since the last time I came in and that no one had brought any vinyl in for him to sell...He did say that if that changes, he may bring it back if he finds more room for it, so there is still hope...Still, I told him that at least ONE person (namely me) is VERY bummed about that! :(

Apparently, some little place called 2nd & Charles (my favorite place to buy records, by the way) has taken a lot of the vinyl business away from him... :-k

But, like I said, hopefully it's not gone for good, since there is plenty of business to go around, and I'm sure there are musicians who are also record collectors and like to have both loves in one place...

In any case, to console myself, I went and visited the nearby thrift store that I mentioned earlier, and although I should put this in the "Budget Record" thread, as they were 50 cents apiece, I did pick up about 20 45's that were not there the last time I visited, so today I came away with the following...

Note: I know a few of the artists, but if you guys can tell me more about any of these, I'm all ears...

1. JIMMY LEE & JOHNNY MATHIS (I don't think it's THAT Johnny Mathis... :-k) Can't You - Want You? b/w The Fun Is Over (Chess)
2. LOUIE INNIS Hearts Of Stone b/w There's A Red Hot Fire In The Old Locomotive (King)
3. HANK WILLIAMS & HIS DRIFTING COWBOYS Weary Blues From Waitin' b/w I Can't Escape From You (MGM)
4. THE DU DROPPERS Talk That Talk b/w Give Me Some Consideration (Groove)
5. THE FIVE KEYS Ling, Ting, Tong b/w I'm Alone (Capitol)
6. TONY BENNETT It's Too Soon To Know b/w Close Your Eyes (Columbia)
7. THE GLOBE TROTTERS My Gal Sal b/w At Sundown (King) (Related to the Harlem Globetrotters?)
8. CHARLIE ADAMS Hey Liberace! b/w Will You Love Me When I'm Old (Columbia)
9. JOHNNIE AND JACK Sincerely b/w Carry On (RCA Victor)
10. MEMPHIS SLIM AND HIS HOUSE ROCKERS Memphis Slim U.S.A. b/w Blues All Around My Head (United) (Red vinyl pressing)
11. TERRY FELL AND THE FELLERS You Don't Give A Hang About Me b/w Get Aboard My Wagon ("X" label pressing)
12. PEGGY KING Any Questions b/w You Never Gave It A Try (Columbia) (Wasn't she on a Dragnet episode? :-k)
13. THE FABULOUS JOE HOUSTON Shtiggy Boom b/w Joe's Gone (RPM)
14. JIMMY NEWMAN AND HIS RHYTHM BOYS Darling b/w You Didn't Have To Go (Khoury's)
15. THE YORK BROTHERS You're My Every Dream Come True b/w Why Don't You Open The Door (King)
16. THE EVERLY BROTHERS Bye Bye Love b/w I Wonder If I Care As Much (Cadence)

A couple of Hank Williams tributes, I think...

17. JACK CARDWELL Two Arms b/w The Death Of Hank Williams (King)
18. HAWKSHAW HAWKINS Picking Sweethearts b/w The Life Of Hank Williams (Also on King...What's the deal on those? "Answer" records to each other? :-k)

And then, a holiday favorite...

19. PERRY COMO Home For The Holidays b/w Silk Stockings (RCA Victor)

A weird one...

20. "The Hartz Mountain Parakeet Training Record"

and finally...a better picture sleeve for a classic! D

21. ELVIS PRESLEY Hound Dog b/w Don't Be Cruel

Funny thing is...I happened to hear "Hound Dog" on a 78' rpm in a Wurlitzer jukebox today (strictly by accident!), as well, but that's another story I will reveal soon...

Seems like another mixed bag of old country, R&B, doo wop and pop, but again, if you know any more about those artists and/or records, fill me in! :)

The Hsrtz Mountain Trainer? Is that the one that has the woman's voice on one track (side?) and the bird on the other? We had one like that...I think it was HM.
I've been curious as to what happened to it... what a blast from the past!

I ordered one of those “lot of 50” random country 45s from eBay.

Surprisingly they arrived unbroken and in fairly clean condition.

Vacuum cleaned about 20 so far and listened to 10.

Not being a country music fan I am unfamiliar with all but a couple of the artists but it is amusing listening to all the sad stories.

I have to say the musical accompaniment is great stuff.

I love those "grab bags" of 45's, wblynch...I bought a couple of those from Nina's Discount Oldies back in the day...They are now Oldies.com. Just for the record, what were some of the artists in your batch? :-k

Sorry VinylMaster, I was away.

I’ve listened to all 100 sides and there’s some really good stuff in there and some okay.

A few artists that are most familiar are
Johnny Cash (Lonesome to the Bone)
Frankie Lane (Blowin Wild)
Willie Nelson (Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain)
The Aimes Brothers (Wrong Again)
Kay Starr (The Last Song and Dance)
Tennessee Ernie Ford (sixteen tons)
Merle Travis (Louisiana Boogie)
Buck Owens (Rollin in my Sweet Baby’s Arms)
Jim Stafford (My Girl Bill)
Slim Whitman (Now and Then There’s a Fool)

And a bunch of real country stuff from people I don’t know but is fun to hear

I received a copy of Carl Perkins Blue Suede Shoes/ Honey Don't on Sun Records for Christmas. I listened to it today.

Just found at a second hand shop around the corner a good copy of Frankie Avalon's "Venus"/"I'm broke" in its original sleeve in better shape than my 1959 one (played so often on my RCA changer at parties.)
For 1€, I didn't hesitate much!
Cheers,

Hugh
