SOUL INVADERS INC - Careless loving / So good
so I'm at the flea market yesterday and it was pretty dead but i stumble upon a box of 45's and there is NOTHING in the box, i mean some beat up late 60's early 70's pop like the carpenters and osmonds and just in the worst shape. Towards the end of the box i pull out this interesting looking 45. It's the Soul Invaders Inc on Yorktown. I don't know anythingabout this record but it has "the look".
Cool label I've never seen before.
I pull it out and ask "how much"
dude says, "I'm selling the whole box for 10 bucks"
i say, "well there isn't much else i could use in there i'll give you 2 bucks for the 45"
dude says as he snatches the 45 from my hand "i'm selling the whole box for 10 bucks"
whoa killer, ease up....
I make a call to my bud DJ Pres and ask him if he knows anything about the 45.
he says he doesn't but says go for it and buy the whole box.
So I go back and say ok man i'll take the box for 10 bucks it's kinda slow out here, yada, yada, yada....
dude says "you can have the box for 10 without that 45, i'm gonna hold onto that one"
I mean what the hell? The flea market set is starting to really get under my skin.
It was obvious he was using the fact that i wanted this and only this 45 to look it up and see what it was worth.
So i get home and i look it up online and of course its a psych soul peice out of NYC and fairly rare. The kind of shit that is right up my alley.
I'm wicked bummed. I know i shoulda just took the chance the 1st time and bought the box but I'm trying to be more thrifty and ease up on my wallet these days so...
That there is the story of the one that got away.
if anyone has a copy that would like to send my way, i'm up for a trade or purchase as it just eats away at me now knowing that i had it in my hands and lost it!
