The second 2010's band I have ever posted beyond my sister's friend's band 'Pill Hill'.  Was recommended by the discogs seller so I added it to my purchase and was worth it.

Polyrock - st EP 80

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  One of those bands that would appear regularly on the old First Avenue Club calendars in the early eighties because they were 'picked to click' by RCA.

Tar Babies - Honey Bubble LP 89

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Since I started this bloggin' thang back in 2008, before the time of Discogs, I am now starting to use it and am finding glaring holes in my core punkish stuff like I never had this album but the others were in my top album catagory.  The band who had an answer with the album before this to when Meat Puppets III came out.  From WI.

Mike Harrison - Rainbow Rider LP 75

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  R.I.P. to Mike a couple weeks ago, one of the finest vocalists to have performed, from Spooky Tooth.

Up with People! LP 64 65 w In Hollywood LP 65 w st LP 77

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Amazing what the Universe brings you when you open yourself up to it's forces!  Got all three of these at one time at a random lunch break stop at God's Own Goodwill as I call it.  All in mint condition and a surprise endorsement by the Duke on the first album cover!!!

The Independents - The First Time We Met LP 72

Gradually tracking down these old soul hits I used to hear regularly on the old radio show 'Back in the days of Soul" Sundays nights on KMOJ.  This song I always had a good laugh at when the spoken dialog began when he complains of getting home and 'the dinner wasn't all fixed'.  Great tune called 'Just As Long As You Need Me (Parts 1 and 2)'.

VA - WFIL the sounds of philadelphia - Rockin' In The Cradle Of Liberty LP 73

Another great old compilation from the dollar sale a month or two ago.  Features:  George McCrae, First Class, Major Harris, Love Unlimited Orchestra, Terry Jacks, Jim Stafford, Helen Reddy, Bobby Womack, Tony Orlando and Dawn, Maria Muldaur, Bo Donaldson And The Heywoods, Gladys Knight And The Pips, Steve Miller Band, Al Green, Ray Stevens and Spinners.

JOE PERRY PROJECT - Once A Rocker, Always A Rocker LP 83

The Aerosmith side dude!  I liked the tune on the comp. from two weeks ago.  Need early two records though I would think.

DAVE DAVIES - AFL1 3603 LP 80 w Glamour LP 81 w Chosen People LP 83

Ray Davies guitar playing brother from the Kinks!

I think this is the country music Alex not from the Sensational band that I thought.

RENAISSANCE - st LP 69 w Illusion LP 71 w Prologue LP 72 w Ashes Are Burning LP 73 w Turn Of The Cards LP 74 w Scheherazade And Other Stories LP 75 w Live At Carnegie Hall 2LP 76 w Novella LP 77 w A Song For All Seasons LP 78 w Azure D'Or LP 79 w Camera Camera LP 81 w Time Line LP 83

Yes, we sure have covered some of the best 70's prog rock of all time and this band has it's place.  Did crowd funding for their last album in 2013 I believe.

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Not easy finding these old 80's mainstream tapes and so I was excited to find this and a little more loose vs. the albums (hope the link is still up).

THE NORTHSTAR BAND - Tonight The Northstar Band LP 79

Great bar band that really has some very skilled parts of songs that really stand out.

ROXETTE - Look Sharp! LP (tape) 88

Better than I thought, quite impressive in fact.  May have to collect more from this artist later on.

HUMAN LEAGUE - Greatest Hits tape

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Most I have posted but just in case a nice summery.

HONEY CONE - Soulful Tapestry LP

Forgot I had this when I was posting their hit song 'Want Ads' that has appeared on two compilations in the last few weeks, thus an expanded selection of tunes for those who like the band.

DON FELDER - Airborne LP (tape) 83

Great charged 80's rock!

Flamin' Oh's - st LP 80 w Oh! LP 81 w The Oh's - Desire LP 85 w Flamingo EP 78

REPOST Request and ADD ON:  Well now, since last post I have added the very early classic EP when they were just called Flamingo (finally right?) AND the singer now has his own special declared day in Minneapolis and Johnny Rey has started gigging again with the Reaction and Jody Ray has been playing again.  This was my older sister's favorite band along with the Phones & Prince
