    This is a "mailbox find" and wasn't something found in the wild but for me this is the huge white whale/holy grail that I've been chasing for a long time. 13 years ago @Mondeyano shared his first Boogie Mixx on SoulStrut. This was the opening record on that mix. It had been on the top of my wants list since. I had scored the purple text pressing that has the 10 minute extended instrumental mix but the sound quality of that pressing is no where near as good as this one. I felt so deflated getting that copy and never wanting to play it out because of the pressing quality.

    Last week a book dealer posted this one up for sale. I made him an offer on it as fast as possible and he kindly let me know that he wasn't accepting offers. I don't blame him as this record has been fetching close to $1,000 or more for a while and my offer was just over his initial asking price. I set my sniper up and had no counter bids so I got it way under the current going rate. I was nervous that it wasn't going to be in that great of condition because it was visually graded and not play graded. That is likely why there were no counter bids. When the record finally came in the mail I inspected it closely. It looks like it had never been played before. There were no scuffs and no spindle marks. I believe it was given as a gift and then never played. Leroy Martin is listed as the producer and it has "Love, Leroy" written on it. So maybe it was from him to a friend. Either way, I'm ecstatic to finally have this green label pressing hard filed in my collection after getting outbid multiple times over the years.

    I think it's pretty good. It's a lo-fi recording of a lounge band. They had a lot of energy. They do mostly cover songs but had a couple original tracks on the album also. The Joe Tex and Otis Redding covers are good, and their original tracks sound like psych rock with an organ player. It's different but in a good way. The cover of the Bee Gees song Words surprised me also. I don't really care for the Bee Gees but they improved the song. 4 out of 5 stars.

    Bonus photo of the band:

    Last night I bought 9 boxes of drum and bass records. There were about 100 soul, funk, and hip hop records mixed throughout the boxes. Here are a few of the better records.

    Yesterday I bought around 5700 records. 3600 45s and 2100 LPs. It's mostly old country, classic rock, and 70s pop. I haven't had a chance to dig through it all yet. I'm excited to dig through the 45s. I have a feeling I am going to find some rare rockabilly records again.

    Chris, going through all of this has got to be one of the toughest things I can imagine. I applaud your dad for fighting the good fight and having a positive mental attitude though it all. Much love to you and your family.

    I bought another drum and bass collection last night. 900-ish (9 boxes) of 12". I glanced at them before buying them but really haven't had a chance to go through them properly yet.

  • Classic songs that you inexplicably hate

    I really dislike ABBA - Dancing Queen. If all ABBA records were tossed into a fire I'd be ok with that.
