Salty Holmes - The Ghost Song


Happy halloween...

This is a long time "halloween" type 45 want. Many moons ago i found a 10' copy on eBay and showed a buddy of mine who also collects halloween type records. Little did i know that he thought i was showing him so he could bid on it. But i was just showing him because i was psyched to find a copy. Well what happened was he outbid me on the damn thing..... So when this one came up recently i went whole hog and finally own a copy. There, now you know why i own this and paid way to much for it..... Enjoy.

Da - Dark Rooms / White Castles






DA (sometimes printed as "DA!") was an early entry into Chicago's punk scene. The mostly female group differed from their contemporaries, sporting a moody art-punk sound instead of the more formulaic hardcore style that other Chicago bands were converging on at the time. The band issued one 7" single, one 12" EP and appeared on the "Busted At OZ" compilation. They split in 1982.

Wanda Jackson - I Don't Wanna Go


I was lucky enough to get to see Wanda Jackson years ago. Somehow that night my wife wound up doing shots with Bruce Springsteen. Wanda was great. When I first started really collecting records one of the first 45's i picked up at my old flea market spot was a copy of "Funnel Of Love", which i still love today. So i still pick up most stuff i see by her even though most of it comes no where near the greatness of that 45. This is a nice little cut from 1960 but the killer here is the fuzzed out tremolo guitar solo. Pretty wild and psychedelic for 1960. Actually the fuzzy guitar is present throughout the whole song but is knocked back by Wanda's loud in the mix vocals and orchestration, but right at the 1:11 mark the fuzz lets loose for a few seconds. Wish it was a bit more wild and a bit longer. Still pretty cool.
