I found this LP in pretty messed up condition and without a sleeve, but just couldn't resist this label. This is a comp of pretty straight forward doo wop and early R&B songs (like the one below) put out by legendary Chicago radio station WVON, which was owned by the Chess brothers. The faces around the edge are the on air personalities at that time. The Magnificent Montague, for some reason, has been punched out. For a full history of WVON (which is still on the air today), Go Here:
This is simply a blog where I post interesting 45s that I come across. I'm not an expert on records or music history and I'm fairly lazy, so don't expect a lot of exhaustive background or research. Comments are highly encouaged...
Most of the music files presented here come from my personal 45 collection and are posted for purposes of musical enlightenment only. These are mostly obscure songs, over 40 years old, that may not have been reissued on CD. The intention is to raise awareness of underappreciated artists/songs. If you like what you hear, seek these artists out on CD or get out there and find some of this old vinyl for yourself... If you are the copyright holder and wish any files to be removed, I will do so immediately upon request.
