    Dear God... why didn't anyone tell me how facemeltingly amazing this single was?

    Welcome to...2005?

    As a Strutter, how did you manage not to hear it until now? I'm not clowning - I'm genuinely amazed.

    I dunno... sweet soul isn't generally my thing, and I don't download music from blogs every day.

    Yeah but you read Soul Strut right? Darondo is like our favorite uncle 'round here!

    Kinetic: catch up on your catch ups and grab one of those copies from Paycheck.

  • any heads willing to explain what the Dorando 45s on the Ocampo label is all about?

    What do you mean? He recorded 1-2 singles for Ocampo. All were comped on the Ubiquity anthology.

  • There's one Darondo 45 on Ocampo, one on Af-fa World and one on Music City.

    The Af-fa World ("Legs") is the rarest, no?

  • If I had to guess I'd say Af-Fa World and Ocampo are about equally rare.

    Is it just me or does he sound like Mr. Rogers in the first part of this clip ... I was waiting for him to start singing "Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood"

    the Ocampo pressing was done by Leroy Smith who ran the Seaside (eugene blacknell), Luck, and other local labels with Mr Lyons. Smith/Lyons did a larger press than the Af-Fa World release that was done by Darondo and the dude who ran that label (whose name i cant remember). In my opinion, the "Legs" record is by far a waaaay harder catch than the Ocampo release. I have had the Ocampo 45 numerous times (probably 10-12) and dont own the "Legs" record which makes me sad...

    I'll cosign: "Legs" is def. the tougher pull.

    I've held it once. That's about as close I've come to it.

  • Dear God... why didn't anyone tell me how facemeltingly amazing this single was?

    I heard it the other day and it... well... it melted my face away!

    Nice tune that I surely enjoy, but not that outstanding IMO when you compare with what else is out there at $100. There are plenty of 45s that I am going to pay $100 for before I get this one.

    Like what, pray tell?

  • As stated NICE TUNE, but compared to other soul 45s at $100, I don't think it stands out that much. I listened to it several times since it was spoken so much about here, but I never felt like spending $100 on it even though I don't have a problem spending $100 on a record, and most of what I buy now is soul 45. But you never know, I may grow more into it with time....

    I can understand that it might really hit your taste, and therefor it stands very much out to YOU. There is so much diversity in soul music.

    Personally, I would pay $100 for these before I would buy Dorando for $100.

    Are you kidding me? That Danelle Harris is boring & the Sam Dees is horrible. "Didn't I" has much more soul than those two 45s combined

    That's fine. There's plenty of people who are willing to drop a C-note on these and I'm sure plenty more who will wish they had when this supply dries up. I don't know, perhaps someone's sitting on hundreds of copies and demand will taper off up before supply does but for now my wife is pretty damn thrilled with the one I bought for her.

    The best part is, there's a high quality, legit reissue album that has the track on it so even if you're not willing to part with that much dough, you can still enjoy the track.

  • and demand will taper off

    Sort of hoping this happens! Ha. It's more than likely that I will find one around here before the demand ever tapers off.

    I know it's already been cleared up, but to add to dudes talking about 'records' not being included in the 'logo':

    I'd chalk it up to him being a Northern guy, but the Sam Dees is just inexplicable.
