VA - PEBBLES Vol. One LP 79

Pinnacle to the development of rock music and the Paisley Underground movement of the 1980's.  Features:  The Litter, The Preachers, The Floyd Dakil Combo, The Outcasts, The Squires, The Grains Of Sand, The Ju Ju's, The Haunted (one of my fave songs the 1-2-5), The Soup Greens, The Wig, Positively 13 O'Clock, Kim Fowley, The Elastik Band, The Split Ends, The Shadows Of Knight and Beaver Patrol.

VA - LIVE AT CBGB's The Home of Underground Rock 2LP 76

Kind of sad that it is closed now.  I found this classic double album in the Good Will bins in mint shape!  It features bands I have posted in the past but also a couple of new ones to me:  Tuff Darts, The Shirts, Mink DeVille, The Laughing Dogs, Manster (gotta find more by them!!), Sun, Stuart's Hammer and The Miamis.

THE RAMONES - It's Alive 2LP 79

PLEASE SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Figured it was about time to post this all-time classic live double album since it is getting revamped for upcoming Record Store Day where they will repress it and add another show near the same time.


You will recognize the first of these instrumental tunes called 'Smokie' as it is one of the classics used for my old made for TV posted CD rip of 'rockin' instrumentals'.  Another no-cover Good Will find.

KAY STARR - The Shining Star LP w Portrait of a Starr LP

I am surprised I have never heard of her as she is very good.

VA - Million Dollar Sellers Citadel Record Club The Longines Symphonette Society LP

Some minty old compilations featuring:  T.E. Ford, Kay Starr (see today's post by her!), Les Baxter, Dean Martin, Les Paul and Mary Ford, Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole, Nelson Riddle, Kingston Trio, Jo Stafford, The Crew Cuts, Georgia Gibbs, Ralph Marterie, Frankie Laine, The Diamonds, Patti Page, Rusty Draper, Sarah Vaughan, Eddie Heywood, Dinah Washington, Ames Brothers and Les Brown, The McGuire Sisters, Al Hibbler, Russ Morgan, Alan Dale, Bert Kaempfert, Teresa Brewer, Warren Covington, The Four Aces and Leroy Anderson.

VA - Today's Gold LP 72

Wow this is a fabulous old compilation with some different versions of big hit songs like by Sly and the Family Stone that I need for my collection.  Also:  Carole King, Blood, Sweat and Tears, The Who, Mac Davis, Chi Coltrane, Mama Cass, Looking Glass, The Association, Argent, The Rascals, The Chambers Brothers, The Addrisi Brothers, Pacific Gas And Electric, Donnie Brooks, Christie, The Hollies, Tommy Roe Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds and Giorgio.  Just wish it was in a little better condition.  

Richard And Patti Roberts - Something Good Is Going To Happen To You LP

Some more 'Jesus Music' stuff as I dig through my piles.  We'll see if a keeper by if it grows on me.

QUINCY JONES - Walking In Space LP 69

PLEASE SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  I found this one with no cover.  It contains some tunes he did for the Broadway version of HAIR musical.  Also, one vocal tune at the end that is familiar with 'Oh Happy Day'.

WAYNE NEWTON - Walkilng On New Grass LP

So yeah, I never realized he sounds kind of like a female singer in his early days.

SHEB WOOLEY or do you say BEN COLDER - st LP 79

Purple people eater creator!  That song let my imagination race as a youngster hearing it on the radio all the time.  Quite hilarious the other songs and there are a lot.  Kooky stuff ala Cledus Maggard and the Citizen's Band, John Zacherle sounds like him a little with his monster mash album I had posted or storybook tales like Fivepenny Piece below from the 60's-70's. mixed with Pat Henry Cole.

Jade Warrior - Last Autumn's Dream LP 72

Wow, nice find of this British Prog Rock band!!  They have a couple more I should seek out.

5 Penny Piece - Both Sides Of Fivepenny Piece LP 78

Kind of like Sheb Wooley above, from a magical land somewhere over the rainbow!

The Best of Motorhead Tape 76

REPOST Request:  Damn, this is an old post I did from 2009!  What a classic though.

PETER SCHILLING - Error In The System LP 83 w Major Tom EP 93 w Things To Come LP 85 w The Different Story (World Of Lust And Crime) LP 89

REPOST and ADD ON:  Found the one on the bottom recently.  Don't want to slag on Bowie but I think I like his Major Tom better and that was his biggest hit.

MEN AT WORK - Business As Usual LP 81

Well this Good Will find in minty shape really became a good tester this weekend for the elliptical stylus settings.  I worked out a new line-in volume setting at 53% (vs. old of 76%) as I used the speakers during adjustment instead of headphones I had used before.  Plus I had heard some treble turds on some of the new rips.  You will notice it this week.

D.B. COOPER - Every Man A King EP 80 w Buy American LP 80

I know this one will grow on me with repeat listens as kind of a generic E. Costello sound.

LEIF GARRETT - Feel The Need LP 78

Another minty vinyl find at Good Will.  This guy I remember from TV growing up and on this he really shows his music appreciation with some excellent song covers.
