I'm crying



Sometimes these Hit records give the real songs a run for their money. The Spartas take on the Animals classic is actually a pretty respectable version.

Enjoy!

Habitual Sex Offenders


They're having a half price blowout at one of my local record shops, so i picked up a bunch of crappy 90s punk 45s last week. Most of them had already been marked down, so at 50 cents to a buck each i could afford to take a few chances.

The Habitual Sex Offenders was the funniest band name of the bunch, the cream of the crop if you will. It turned out to be a pretty decent trio of sloppily played and poorly produced punk rock tunes too. I'm digging this one quite a bit. This is the kind of shit i would have listened to when i was in high school. Some things never change i guess...

Enjoy!

Tribute to Richard J Daley


I don't give a shit about politics or politicians... Especially ones who died when i was still learning how to walk... I live here now but I'm not a native Chicagoan, so i got no love for the guy.
But hey- That's just me.

Two facts remain however- Today is (or would have been) Richard J Daley's birthday, and i own this 45. So dere's dat anyway...

This record is what it is.

Enjoy!

How does that grab you darlin



I've picked up a few Dora Hall 45s over the last two years or so, and could tell they were special, i just didn't know why. I recently read an article that explained her "singing career" in more detail, and then by chance came across four more of her records last week.
I think this might be my new collecting obsession.


From the Unofficial Dora Hall website:
DORA HALL was the undisputed queen of vanity entertainment. Dora's husband was Leo Hulseman, the founder of the immensely successful Solo Cup Company, and a man who was quite happy to delve into Solo's apparently bottomless coffers to finance dozens of record releases by his wife, all of which were given away free of charge with packages of plastic cups and plates during the 1960's. Not content with her "success" in the record business, in the 1970's and 1980's Dora branched out with several full-blown Solo-financed TV specials designed to make her a star--despite the fact that she was an elderly grandmother with limited show business experience.

Mrs. Mother U.S.A.


This ain't exactly the happiest Mothers day record i've ever heard. The last couple a lines damn near brought a tear to my eye the first time i listened to it...

Happy Mother's day to all you mothers out there. Without you- we wouldn't be here. Thank you for bringing us into the world.

Enjoy!

I call my baby STP


I'm back ladies and gents. I was up in Milwaukee over the weekend. I hit some cool record shops among other things. Picked up some good cheap junk 45s, as well as some 80s punk reissues that i've been looking for forever. .

I'm back home, so let's keep it local for now. Here's a fine little ditty from Chicago's own Del-vetts. Their third and final single from 1966.
Enjoy!

Great idea- Road trips are so much fun!

Um, I don't know...  I don't think i'll be able to make it after all... Have fun though- Send me a post card...



Enjoy!

Heileman's beer song



Fount this relic at the record show a couple few weeks ago. At some point, someone was trying to get $2.00 for it (which i would have gladly paid.) Luckily for me it was in the cheapo, stacked underneath the table of 'real records' boxes. When all was said and done, i think i gave the guy 25 bucks for more than 60 45s, including this one... Good deal. The sleeve is a little trashed, but you get what you pay for. Nearly 60 years old, it's a miracle the sleeve is still with the record at all.

enjoy!
