Happy Holidays

Hi everyone. Happy Holidays. I came across a couple interesting blogs that is worth mentioning. The first is the Golden Voice Recording Company. It has background/history of the groups who recorded at the Golden Voice Recording Studio in the 1960's. A couple of highlights for me is the history of The Camaros and the Wombats. Another cool blog is Rip It Up Rhode Island which features bands from the Rhode Island area. Both have very good information. I have featured some records that I like. I hope you will find these 45's as enjoyable as I do and that it might stir conversation about the artist who made them.

                                                                       The Minutemen - Thinking of You

                                                                The Patriots - The Land Of No Return

                                                                    The Royal Knights- Yes it's me
                                                                        The Corals - Love You Baby

                                                        The Brian Ross Playboys - Someone to Love

                                                       Al Riccio and the Noblemen - For Losing You

                                                                           Skip Arne - Night Life


  1. I'm Happy that you're back! Hope that everything is okay with you!
    Best regards

  2. yippeehh! Great to see you back again Johnny, and with a load of unheared gems, all delicious and rare, as usual (love that Skip Arne track). So my very private Artefacts series will continue (Vol. 5 now), excellent!
    Also, thanks for the link to the Golden Voice Recording Company (I was familiar with the s Rip It Up Rhode Island blog, but unfortunately no downloads over there).
    Take care!

  3. Hi Nick, Michael
    Thank you for your comments. The Wombats unreleased "You Lied" is so cool. Looking forward to purchasing the groups new four song EP.

  4. like that Minutemen track "sweet"
    Jalopy Five ... did a whole lot of covers, story there for sure. Shameless

  5. I haven't seen a story about The Jalopy Five. I know they recorded over 20 covers for HIT records, by far the most of any group for the label. If you come across a story about them please let me know, I will put the link on the blog. I have collected several HIT 45's over the years. Some are very good while others I think the label should have left original song alone. I like about any version of Stones "Paint it Black". I thought that others would enjoy the Jalopy Five's 1966 version of it. The Minutemen's Keltone record was released in 1964. They had a real nice Mersey sound on "Thinking of you". Tom, Thank you for comments.

  6. I am stupid -- where is the catch-it-all over whatever for this stuff? I really am stupid,,,,,

  7. Not for sure what you mean. If your talking about the old sound files of the records, they are no longer on the blog a current time. Divshare was used originally but when the old Divshare had issues the files were lost. I have not decided if they will be re-uploaded.
