Not Soul

Probably my favorite found sleeve note. And correct.

Audible Faults

Found in a copy of The Leather Nun's Cool Shoes/I Wish 45. I've often wondered how a defective record could meander its way from the UK to a Toronto Goodwill store, where I bought the single about a year after it was released. The funny thing is, the record plays fine, so maybe the quality control inspector was editorializing.

RB Library

Now that I'm devoting all my potential blog time to posting on 45cat, I'm unearthing all kinds of oddball stuff from my record, um, accumulation. Actually, the entire accumulation is oddball. For example, these excellent radio library discards.

It's cool that these were the actual records played on air.

Also love the RCA-supplied filing sleeves.

Wonder if any remnants of this library still exist at the station?

Purgatory Blues

Kinda creepy-cool harmonica group sounds.

DC5 45s

A pile of Dave Clark 5 45s I picked up at the Goodwill. Seems Rita had excellent taste in beat combos.

More Label Shots

I think I'll just post label shots to this blog. With the occasional witticism. Very occasional.
