SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON: Their 2nd album and a great piece of work. I especially like their 'mission statement' on the back cover: "What we wanted was to grow and create and be something more than each of us could be so we became us and we took the things we knew and felt like jazz and folk and poetry and blues and even longhair and theatre and mime and sometimes ragtime and most of all rock and added in a few signs that a girl we know painted and spent a thousand hours in the woodshed and now we're The Hello People and soon we'll be even more The Hello People and this is our second album. It's called Fusion......."
SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON: Even though this is a toned down live recording and not of the greatest quality, Grace's awesome powerful singing breaks through clearly. Such a great talent and even cooler in person!
SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON: A record I have seen infrequently over the years and when I discovered & posted his early stuff, had to get it. He kept getting repost requests for a reason.
SHAKIN' STEVENS - Shaky LP 81 w The Early Days LP 82 w There Are Two Kinds Of Music...Rock 'n' Roll LP 90
SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON: Dang! This guy sure put out a lot of vinyl kind of like James Last from Germany. Still have to say I like that very early one from last post best although 'Tiger' and 'Jungle Rock' are nice inputs from the picture disk.

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON: Well the live album from a few weeks ago certainly was worth the effort on my part so I had to hear the studio offering. http://www117.zippyshare.com/v/hytR4jgK/file.html
SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON: Well since I posted the first LP in this series a few weeks ago, I had to swipe this out of the dollar bin.

HALL And OATES - Past Times Behind LP 71 72 76 w Whole Oates LP 72 w Abandoned Luncheonette LP 73 w No Goodbyes LP 73 77 w War Babies LP 74 w Hall And Oates LP 75 w Bigger Than Both Of Us LP 76 w Beauty On A Back Street LP 77 w Along The Red Lodge LP 78 w Livetime LP 78 w X-Static LP 79 w Voices LP 80 w Private Lives LP 81 w H2O LP 82 w Rock'N Soul LP 83 w Big Bam Boom LP 84
Here is a band I always used to ignore as it was my younger sister's favorite along with Donny Osmond's Deep Purple Dream, but I liked the early K-Tel Hit Parade songs so, with a another collector's opinion that their early stuff was really good, I started collecting them. I had to fill in the two above I was missing but the rest here have some hidden gems and you can search of later stuff too.

SAVOY BROWN - Getting To The Point LP 68 w Blue Matter LP 69 w Step Further LP 69 w Raw Sienna LP 70 w Looking In LP 70 w Street Corner Talking LP 71 w Hellbound Train LP 72 w Lion's Share LP 72 w Jack The Toad LP 73 w Boogie Brothers LP 74 w Wire Fire LP 75 w Skin 'N' Bone LP 76 w Savage Return LP 78 w Rock 'N' Roll Warriors LP 81 w Greatest Hits 2LP 81 w Just Live LP 70 81 w Live In Central Park LP 72 85 w Highway Blues LP 85
This U.K. Blues band were bigger in the U.S.A. and thus toured there very consistently. By doing that, they helped start the regular club scene such as at the Minneapolis Labor Temple that an old cab driver told me is where the Velvet Underground played on the West Bank. Here is a great historic link on this place with posters (link: http://twincitiesmusichighlights.net/venues/the-labor-temple/). After it closed, First Avenue became the dominant club scene and thus most of my records posted are from bands that toured through town there.

Ruby Starr - Smokey Places LP 77 w Ruby Starr And Grey Ghost LP 75 w GREY-STAR - Telephone Sex LP 83
REPOST Request: She hung with Black Oak Arkansas and Dr. Hook and those kind of bands. My old neighborhood record store has recently completed a basement shrine to Black Oak Arkansas which has got me watching old footage on Youtube...wow, way better as a live band!
REPOST Request: What can I say? Worth having.
