Bill Haley - Real Rock Drive & Ray Smith - That's All Right - Rockin' Little Angel

I got these 45's with the same records as the ones from yesterday's post. If you read that then you get it. Sure these things are beat to hell but it's the music, not perfect labels i am after. I actually got shit in my comments about a label that was ugly once... if these labels turn you off then go take your elitist musical ass some place else.

The Ray Smith 45 a payed i buck for and even with its ugly labels worth every penny. Real good Elvis influenced rockabilly stuff from 1959 or 1960?

the Bill Haley i payed a few dollars more for this but it is from 1952 and pretty rare i guess. It is pretty hard to find early Bill Haley stuff on Essex. I have a bunch of his Decca 45's but only a few on Essex so i bought it. Man, was this cat ahead of the game... 1952!

Anyway, i'm throwing these up to further a few of my points from yesterday.... Enjoy the music and never mind the beat up labels.

As for Mr. Haley, I'm sure most are familiar w/ him, no?

And as for Mr. Ray Smith, well, he killed himself in 1979....

Have a nice day!

Could'nt agree more. Keep up the good work on your blog..it's one of my daily's. Saturday I bought 1000 45s for $10. Only problem? The records were in sleeves & the boxes had been in two inches of water. Talk about mold! They are cleaned up now...what a job. About 180 "Keepers" tho.

You got shit about a label scan??? How bizarre. Someone sincerely needs to get a life. Ya know, like maybe they should go outside once in awhile?

I post beat up records all-the-damn-time 'cause I happen to think God loves scratched records. Why else would He have made so many?

Vinyl bloggers deserve more respect than they get, it's a fact.

Oops, forgot to say that both records are killer. And ya know, any 45 from 1952 deserves respect. The medium was what? three years old at the time? They hardly bothered to press the things up till '56.
