VA - Orig. Wild Flower Reggae Hits LP 74


Excellent early reggae release from featuring the producers on the cover.  I was looking for band names but did not see them so I think just the same band.

JACK JONES - Where Is Love LP


Jack is in the younger classic crooner school doing a cover of the Doors, 'Light My Fire' in full cocktail hour mayhem.  He scores quite highly I would say by the exertion.

DONOVAN - Best Of LP


Any Donovan is good Donovan in my book but these are some really early songs.  Doesn't include my fave by him 'Season of the Witch' but still stone cold classics!

BOBBY GOLDSBORO - Word Pictures LP


I'm telling you these recent finds are taking me right back to the womb for God's Sake.  I think the last time I heard 'I Am A Rock' was in the early seventies  before kindergarten!!  The rest of the tunes are real classics too and this marks my first 'Christmas' song to be posted for this year in the all-time classic he does called 'Look Around You (It's Christmas Time).  Great Goodwill find!

Johnny Mathis - Johnny's Greatest Hits CD 77


I still haven't listened to this guy but I know he was touring the Northern USA this year and fit right into my crooner theme this week and next.  Too many pops to include all of them this week.  The vinyl of course I listen to while recording but CD's I cannot.

ELO's Greatest Hits CD 99


SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Just disregard the left half from this Goodwill CD find.  Also the first song 'Evil Woman' was another casualty to the dreaded 'DISC ROT!'.

TERRY JACKS and the poppy family featuring Susan Jacks [K-tel] LP 76 w Seasons In The Sun LP 74


REPOST Request:  Here's what I wrote before:  This is some good stuff, that's why K-tel devotes a rare complete vinyl to just one artist.  Wish there were more of this kind of thing--I put the title hit song back to back in the song listing and you can hear how great the K-tel vinyl sounds!  Couple more familiar songs from my youthful radio listening.

FINGERPRINTZ - st EP 79 w The Very Dab LP 79 w Distinguishing Marks LP 80 w Beat Escape EP 81 w Beat Noir LP 81


REPOST Request:  Here is a blurb from discog:  Scottish New Wave band founded in 1978, with a first single issued in January 1979. The debut album issued in September of the same year saw them without their original singer and main songwriter Jimme O'Neill taking over lead vocals.

NEGATIVLAND - st LP 80 w Escape From Noise CD w Points LP 81 w Escape From Noise CD 87



REPOST Request:  I know I have more but couldn't find like the U2 release and live.  My SST friend introduced the 'Escape From Noise' CD to me right when the new CD sound was 'happenin' and it really blew me away as we kept replaying parts and listening to it as a good CD player tester.
